FirstBIKE Instilling Confidence in Young Riders - Review & Give Away

With three older brothers it’s only natural for my daughter to look up to them and want to join them in their “big kid” ventures. When she watches them take off on their bikes, she begs and begs to break out her bike. But of course, she immediately notes a big difference between her bike and theirs, training wheels.

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.


FirstBIKE Set up

FirstBIKE is designed for ages 22 months to 5 years, teaching them the most fundamental lesson in bike riding. Balance. FirstBIKE limits the tumbles taken and instead instills confidence in young riders allowing for a smooth transfer to pedal bikes without ever needing training wheels!


Bike Giveaways

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.


kids bikes

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.

FIRSTBIKE Features

I thought the seat should have been raised more for my daughter – which is done with a simple twist of a knob - but my husband insisted it was at the right height.


Bikes for young children
Don't mind the attire. She got dressed herself just to go out and ride.
She had a blast figuring out her balance and was off and rolling. I was surprised how quick she grasped the concept of keeping the bike balanced; now she just needs to learn how to utilize the brake. 


Riding a bike


She insisted I mention she can even do "tricks!" ;-)


Bikes

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.
