We were hoping to get a bike but Is it best to get with pedals or without? The balance bikes looks amazing but will the last long, or would my 3 year old grow out of it pretty quickly?

  • I’d go with pedals. My 3 year old is trying to ride her big brothers bike

  • I think the balance bikes are meant for kids up to about 3, so he probably would grow out of it quickly.

  • He is still 3 year old.I think get it with pedals.

  • We do pedals- all bikes will be outgrown but these will last longer. At 4 will still be on the same bike, but will be passed a balance bike stage.

  • Pedals & training wheels will last longer indeed, however they’ll outgrow those too

  • We started with pedals with training wheels. Lasted much longer.
