We got this bike for my son's second birthday, and it has been an absolute essential for us. We do a lot of walking and we wouldn't be able to cover nearly the distance we do without it. It took him a couple of weeks to get the hang of it, but before long he was powering along no problem. Now he's three and it's me running to catch up with him! He's figured out the balance now too so he'll lift his feet off the ground and "coast", I don't think he'll have any problem transitioning to a two-wheel pedal bike. The best thing about the Strider is how light-weight it is, which is great of course for the child to be able to pick up the bike (as is occasionally needed) and maneuver it without any problem. It's also good for the parent who may (on occasion) end up carrying it! Despite the heavy use I think it should still have some life left in it for my second son. But regardless I'd have no problem buying another as we have found it to be absolutely invaluable.

We have owned this bike for just over a year (the ST2) and I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. The things we like most about this bike is that it is light, and our son just loves riding it. Took him a few goes before he really got going and he saw his friends riding theirs (they all have striders) but now we can't get him off the thing. If you are worried about weight these things are light which makes a difference when going up hills - he doesn't have to fight the bike. He is probably ready to step up to a real pedal bike now. In fact he tried one on the weekend and it was very natural for him and he even started pedalling. But there is no hurry as there is still seat height left on this. These days it means we can get to the park and other places quickly without the slow, hard to motivate walking that can happen sometimes without it. Love it - would recommend it for sure. It's been the best thing we ever bought him...other than the Thomas the tank engine pyjamas he loves too.

We have owned this bike for a while now and the kids just love it!  It is super durable and teaches amazing balance to graduate easily to a peddle bike.

We were in the market for a brake on the balance bike as we moved to the Okanagan and now our 2 year old has to deal with some serious hills.  We contacted the Run Bike shop and they were so helpful!  Even though they don't usually sell the brake accessory, they quickly sourced it for us and was in the mail in no time.  Great customer service throughout.  The brake installs easily and now our 2 year old can tackle all those hills now like a pro! 

Thanks Run Bike shop!

We bought these two pink Run Bikes for a Christmas gift for our 2 year old twin grand daughters. They arrived in perfect condition in 6 days from ordering !!! That was the best service we've seen for a long while. The bikes were a huge hit but we'll have to wait for spring for a good test run, but between the living room, dining room and kitchen they both got a good feel for them and were actually walking with the bikes properly and disembarking properly too. I will recommend your sales and shipping service to anyone with ears. A huge THANK YOU.

Absolutley, my Grand Daughter and Grand Son loved them from the minute there Dad put them together. All the other toys were pushed aside to make a road for their new bikes which they rode up back and forth from the family room to the kitchen most of Christmas day. Can't wait for spring to get them outside and enjoy the real benifits of these bikes.

My 17 month old isn't in love with the bike just yet but I'm sure in a few more she will be. The height is just right as she's on the taller side. Only complaint is the little black bearings on the wheels ( there are 2 per wheel) have all snapped off and broke! Not even outside yet with the bike. Maybe they are replaceable but they seem to snap easily.

Bought a green strider bike for my daughter when she was 2 but she was more interested in the tricycle we had inherited. 2 years later our son was 2 and loved the bike and we let our daughter try out a bike with training wheels which was frustrating. They would go in the alley and I would have to keep helping her as the the bike would high center. And my son with his strider bike was having the time of his life. So I decided to buy her a new strider bike but this time in pink a color I know she loves. Now biking is more enjoyable and she loves her strider bike and both my son who is 2 and my daughter who is almost 4 can ride anywhere and confidently. They have learned how to balance quickly and love riding everywhere including down sloped driveways where they can get a little more speed. I like it because they are learning how to maneuver a bike really well. I would definitely recommend the strider bikes. My kids love their bikes.

Our 2.5 year old son LOVES his Strider bike. He also just loves bikes, we used to take him out in a trailer with us, but he wanted his 'own' bike to ride. He used a tricycle before we brought home the strider, and now - the strider is all he wants to use. It is super light-weight, and very easy to carry. I would highly recommend this bike, as the seat is adjustable. Our son is very tall for his age and I'm hoping with the seat adjustment option we will get at least two more years out of this before he potentially out-grows it. I think I would have liked to see the seat adjustment to be a little longer. Time to pick up a GO PRO and attach it to my little dare devil's helmut!

Just to let you know we received the bike two days ago and in perfect condition. Assembly was a breeze for my husband. Our grand daughter is already into it and just thrilled. Won't stop riding. She is gaining confidence by the hour. Thanks for the great service and a great bike.

Our toddler is 20 months old. It is totally surprising how quickly she knew what to do with this bike. Calls it "own bike." Meaning it is "her own bike." Thanks again Runbike Canada.

Our grand daughter is 21 months of age. We bought the Strider Sport Bike for her. She was very enthusiastic for the first few days but now has abandoned it. We are certain she will return to it, and soon, as she was progressing very quickly to running with it. It is easy to assemble and adjust. Attractive too. I feel certain this bike will ease the transition to a bike with pedals when she is four or five. The concept of teaching balance before getting on a regular bike is very apparent when you see a child riding a balance bike. I would highly recommend this bike to anyone with a toddler. I would also recommend runbike Canada because they had our order and shipped this bike within a day or two. We had it in our hands in less than ten days. Excellent customer service. A well made product.

After a delay and mix up with our order (first it was going to be delayed...then not delayed and in the end delayed....) once we FINALLY received our bike....loved the tracking option sent to my email, we were able to wait for the delivery truck (which is a huge deal to a two year old toddler). Fed Ex delivety man brought our bike in a box to our door. He might as well have been Santa!
The bike was easy to assemble. Our daughter loves the little bell. I could barely finish installing the seat she was grabing the bike, hopped on and started walking around the house with it. Taking it outside within a short time. She LOVES it. It is light enough for her to lift it up and for mom and dad to carty along when she gets tired.

So happy with our purchase and the wonderful efficient assistance from the customer service department -

Overall great experience so far!

Would I purchase from Bike Run again....You Bet! I have other grandchildren who will be ready for bikes soon and I will purchase from Bike Run.
The most efficient and simple process which was a pleasure in this day and age.

my 3.5 year old got on this bike and took a few times to get on it and try it and then it clicked! now he is all over the place and loves it. Learned balance really fast and it's easy to carry. it does say it can be used to up to 5 yr olds but my five year old is way to big for it so we are bummed about that as we were hoping both could learn on it. Going to get her the big kid version but def a great bike for under 4 i would recommend.

Purchased our bike for our 2 year old grandson's birthday. Well it only took
4 days and he was gliding along and loving every minute. He was able to figure out how to steer and balance (feet off ground) very quickly. We are all amazed how fast he was able to accomplish all of the motor skills to ride and only be 24 months old. Well worth every penny when you see how
much he loves his bike.

I purchased this bike for my son who is 2 years and 9 months old. I was a bit apprehensive and skeptical but decided to go through with it. The ordering process was silky smooth. Bike arrived within 10 days. The packaging was great. Extremely convenient, light and easy to carry home like a briefcase. The assembly was also very easy and worry-free. We did it together so he was very excited. The first two days he was mostly walking with the bike between his legs, but once he figured it out, he was off. He has ridden it 6 or 7 times now and he is very comfortable and stable on it, and he really, really, really enjoys blasting down the sidewalks and playgrounds. He rides it to and from his daycare which is 11 blocks from our condo. Without the stroller it took us around 30 minutes to get there, but now it takes us around 10 on his bike. I would definitely recommend this bike, especially to someone who is looking to get rid of the stroller for longer walks. I hope he will continue to enjoy this bike and ride everywhere.

My husband and I ordered two Strider bikes for our grandchildren. We live in the country (in the same yard as them) so are on gravel road. Our granddaughter who is 3 years and 3 months loves her Strider bike. When she first looked at it she asked "where are the pedals?" as she had been riding a small two wheeler with training wheels for a couple of months. She's been riding it for a few days now and is quite competent on it but not overly fast yet (the gravel doesn't help!). Our grandson, who is 19 months, wants to ride his but gets frustrated at times as he's learning to get his balance. We think he'll catch on pretty fast though as he's never ridden anything with pedals before so doesn't have that hurdle to overcome. The bikes were delivered in just over a week and were amazingly easy to assemble (5 minutes per bike) and are so lightweight but sturdy. We're happy and so are our grandkids!

So far we have loved the bike, we gave it to our 3 year old for his birthday and he rides it pretty much every day. It's small enough and light enough that he can ride it in our small apartment but also a great bike for riding outside on hills and the sidewalk. It took a couple of days for him to learn how to use it but he quickly caught on. Very happy with our purchase and very happy with runbike.ca.

We decided to order this bike one week before our now three year old's birthday, with the hopes it would arrive on time - And it did! He absolutely LOVES this bike, and it took just one week for him to figure it out... he strides and glides all the time! He is very tall for his age (more like 4 1/2 years) and while he won't be using it for years because of that, we still would recommend it.
