The Stages of Learning Balance Bikes

A kid's first bike doesn't have to be the most expensive on the market, but it should have quality parts that make riding easier, enable your child to be successful, make riding fun, and add favour to do more.

When it comes time to buy a children's bike, it's not always easy to know which one will suit the needs of our little athletes. Consult the following guide to make an informed choice.

Beginner / First Bike - For little ones learning to ride a bike in a safe environment and needing adult assistance and guidance.

Intermediate - For those who can ride on their own in a safe environment and who are now ready to explore new terrain, always under supervision.

Advanced - At this point, the young rider has mastered his bike very well and has toured the neighborhood and surrounding bike paths. He's ready to try unpaved trails with a few pitfalls that will put his bike to the test.

Little monster - Said of a young cyclist at ease on all types of terrain. It requires a war machine that is durable and able to take the blows. At this point, mom and dad are way behind.

Here is what you need to know to choose the right bike for your child

On their first bike, when seated, the child should have their feet flat on the ground. This way, he will be able to break or stay in balance more easily. Once these techniques have been mastered, you can set up your bench.

On his second bike, when seated, the child should be able to touch the ground with the tips of their toes. This will allow him to obtain the correct extension of the legs while pedalling.

For most children, the ideal position on a bicycle is around 60-70 ° to the frame. Plus, it will be too difficult for him to be agile. Less, he will tire too quickly.

A longer frame and a lower bench are better than a short frame and a high bench. It will be easier for your child to stay balanced and subsequently remove the training wheels.

The lighter the better. A child's bicycle should be no heavier than 40% of their weight. It will be too difficult for him to carry it, stop and walk with it, if it is too heavy.

Balance bikes have become the preferred method of cycling industry professionals for teaching children to ride. By starting with a #kinderfeets bike, the child learns balance before all other more difficult skills such as pedalling and braking. By using their feet to propel themselves forward and to stop and by making gravity their ally, the child will be one step ahead of other children in the neighborhood by learning to use a Kinderfeets bike from a young age.
