The first bike most of us parents would have ridden would have undoubtedly come with stabilisers. While bikes such as these are still widely available and enjoyed by many children, nowadays if you’re looking for a toddler's bike, there is a much better option: the balance bike.
Also known as runner or strider bikes, balance bikes come without pedals or cranks. Some balance bikes have a short rubber strap that connects the fork to the frame and keeps the handlebars facing forward. This is really useful as it means that steering is also taken out of the equation until your little cyclist is ready and the strap can be removed.
The benefit is that balance bikes enable your young rider to learn to scoot along using their feet while getting to grips with the basics of balancing, free from other complications. Take a look at the Pinnacle Tineo for a good example of a balance bike.
