Strider’s Classic 12 is a lightweight, pedal-less balance bike that allows your child to straddle the bike with both feet on the ground and easily propel the bike by walking or running. This nimble steel bike lets your little one focus on the fundamentals of balancing, leaning, and steering without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels. The maintenance-free ultra-light wheels feature industrial foam tires so you’ll never have to worry about a flat. The built-in footrest with grip tape allows toddlers to easily glide with their feet up. Plus, the adjustable-height seat and handlebar let the Classic 12 grow with your kiddo.
Fits 18–36 months with included seatpost and 36–60 months with optional extended seatpost (sold separately).

We purchased this bike for a grandson's second birthday and did this on-line. I didn't think there was any way this could get here on time but the day before the party it was on the porch. We put it together in 5 minutes and Mason walked up and just tossed a leg over like he had been doing it for months!
We bought the classic bike for our 2 year old daughter. She still has not mastered balancing on the bike but is quickly getting the hang of it.
I bought one for my Grandson last July, he loved it! The balance they learn is out of this world! I have two Grandduaters that turn two Jan 22 and 23 rd. Got them one of their own so there are no more fights over Logan's. Best ever purchase, DO. NOT be afraid of buying these for your babies, great investment!
My father bought this little guy for my son after I told him about it. When it arrived I couldn't wait for Christmas morning when I would give it to my son, Jace. He went straight to it and wanted to ride right away. Just need to get him a helmet before I take him on the open road.
Daughter is not warming up to it very well. Maybe needs more practice.
My daughter has been playing around with a Strider for a year or so - she didn't seem all that interested in it until this past summer (she is four years old.) She rode around on her bike with training wheels and played with the Strider occasionally. Recently, I noticed that she was riding her Strider a lot more and really seemed to be balancing very well on it. So today I asked her if she wanted to try her bike without training wheels. We took them off, and she was riding all by herself WITHIN 10 MINUTES!!! I held onto her a few times to help her learn the fundamentals of pedaling, and then she was off. My husband and I could not believe it!!! As fellow South Dakotans, we are so proud of your company. I was skeptical of the value of a little bike without pedals. Boy was I wrong!!! Love it! Now my middle child will be able to keep up with and annoy her big sister even more effectively. :-) Thanks for a great product!

This is an Awesome bike! We have the original that is about 4 years old now. We got it for our daughter who is now 7, (early) 3rd birthday. As she didn't want anything to do with her 10 inch bike with training wheels (she has a processing disorder and the wobbling and false sense of security scared her). Without waiting a minute after assembly, she hopped on and started walking around with it, saying she loooved her new bike! Within 5 months she was riding her 10 in with No training wheels!! And our son who was 18 mo. at the time shared his sisters Strider, which was great because the other pre bikes didn't get that small. He road her pedal bike at 2 years 2 mos.!!!!!! Now both are awesome racers, our son turned Intermediate last week at just 5 :) :) I can't say enough about the quality and value of Strider!!!! Ps Both of our kids STILL ride their Strider and it's still in amazing shape considering what it's been through ;)
The perfect bike! My daughter learned to ride a pedal bike just before she turned 3!!!
All 4 bikes that I have purchased have been outstanding. Great quality and the kids have all enjoyed it.
