Last summer some friends of ours had us over and their little boy who was just barely two at the time was zoomin around on a little bike without pedals...I was curious. They told us all about the strider bike..it helps kids develop balance rather than relying on training wheels and then hopefully they can go right to a pedal bike. I was skeptical and definitely not willing to fork over the cash for one..then the thought came to me why couldn't I just take the pedals off a regular little bike? This is where You Tube comes in...
I did mine all by myself fairly quickly and easily..am I proud of this? umm YES!
My husband cut off the bolts that stuck out either side of the back tire and sanded them down... little bare legs and bolts are a bad idea.
He loves his new "bite" (bike) and feels so proud that he can go on the gravel as fast as his big sisters.
It did take him a little while to get used to the idea but after about a week he is lovin it and has left his little tricycle in the dust...kinda sad for Mom :(
Check out this little guy!
