Ii was recently introduced to balance bikes and have been intrigued at the thought of children learning to ride a bike without ever using training wheels. so we decided to try out the Joovy BicycooBMX balance bike.
Balance bikes are bikes without any pedals, crankset or training wheels. children use them like traditional bicycles except they use their feet to make them ride. these bikes are often called “running bikes” or “run bikes.” the goal of these bikes is to teach kids balance and steering. most kids can go straight from learning to ride on a balance bike to riding a regular bicycle because they have already learned how to balance on two wheels. there isn’t that scared feeling they get when you remove training wheel from a bike…because training wheels don’t properly teach kids to balance.
The Joovy Bicycoo and Joovy BicycooBMX are durable balance bikes for kids 3 years and older. the frame is made of aluminum so it is strong and lightweight just like high-end bikes. unlike the heavy wooden and steel versions, the lightweight frame makes controlling the Joovy balance bike much easier for kids. and the Bicycoo features tires that are pneumatic (air) and refillable which give kids a much smoother ride. most balance bikes use EVA plastic tires which are cheaper and wear out much quicker than these rubber tires used on the Joovy BicycooBMX. there is also a hand brake for the rear tire….letting kids get used to using bicycle hand brakes.
If you have a little one who is excited to ride, but not ready for a bike. This is the perfect solution.
