After teaching 3 boys to ride a bike, teaching my daughter was not something my husband was looking forward to. He just couldn’t stand seeing our princess falling; which is inevitable when learning to balance. Luckily, just in time for the beautiful weather we’ve been having, we were introduced to FirstBIKE.
So what makes the FirstBIKE stand out to this Mom among other balance bikes on the market? Simply put, it’s sleek design and smooth ride. I also LOVED the fact it had a hand brake. I think learning to brake is just as important as balance. This was a feature missing on my sons balance bike.
Easy to assemble, the FirstBIKE comes with everything needed to have your little one rolling almost no time. Weighing only 8.6 lb, FirstBIKE is almost three times lighter than a traditional pedal bike with training wheels. Simply attach the front hand bar to the frame and tighten on the front wheel and you’re on your way. No special tools need; lubrication, Allen key and stickers are included. *Please note you will want to make use of the lubrication or you’ll make things tougher then they need to be.
This sleek looking bike will brighten any child’s day with a range of unparalleled features such as a flexible and shock absorbent high-tech frame that protect a child’s spine as well as that unique rear-drum braking system I mentioned earlier.
Once we were built – in mere seconds- my daughter was ready to ride. The seat adjusts as does the brakes sensitively. FirstBIKE really took the time to focus on safety by also including a steering limiter for a safer ride and a “horse saddle” seat preventing children from slipping off while riding downhill.

She insisted I mention she can even do "tricks!" ;-)
Another feature that should be noted is the build of the bike. The revolutionary frame material gives it flex for comfort and posture support, strength for durability and lightness for great maneuverability. What it also gives is superior outdoor durability. I hate to admit this but we’ve sacrificed many bikes to the elements by simply forgetting it was outside, not having enough space in the garage, or being caught in one of our many summer rain storms. Unlike metal bikes which rust and wooden bike which can splinter, the FirstBikes uniqueness really shines when it comes to standing up to the elements.
