My son just had his second birthday and he got a Strider running bike . If you want to know more about them go to the site in my links " training wheels suck " and read up on it .
If you have a kid , or know someone with a kid that is around 2 and you want them to be able to ride a bike with pedals before they're 3 , then this is the deal for sure . I've bought several of these for friends of mine and they are all super balanced and little rippers now .
I'm going to take this one apart and trick it out a little , my friend Mikey is going to stripe it up some and I might put some different grips on it . . . but I'm excited to see how he takes to it . He already pushes it all over the house yelling about his cycle and " mommy , daddy bike bike ! Stuff like that .
The mini cut is optional but adds to his outlaw lifestyle . Not available from Strider however .
