We’ve created an infographic with 5 reasons why we think you should avoid kids bike stabilisers! Stabilisers, unless used for medical reasons, are just UNNECESSARY!
Kids bike stabilisers are a huge waste of money and time
Buying a bike with stabilisers is not a helpful way to teach your child to ride a bike – in fact they can make the whole process take longer! At The Little Bike Company, we want to see more kids having more fun on bikes – that’s why we believe that the only place for stabilisers is in the bin!
Teach your child to ride a bike really quickly! Ditch the stabilisers!
STABILISERS DON’T TEACH KIDS TO BALANCE!
Kids come to rely on stabilisers for balance so when they are removed they have to learn to balance…
This defeats the object!
STABILISERS TEACH BAD HABITS
Stabilisers teach children to use their body’s weight in ways totally at odds with what is needed to ride and balance on two wheels – so they can actually make it harder to learn to ride a bike.
STABILISERS MAKE IT HARD TO STEER
Cornering properly on a bike is all about shifting your weight on the bike. Because stabilisers don’t help kids learn how to use their weight properly, steering with stabilisers on a bike and just after their removal is difficult
STABILISERS ONLY WORK ON SMOOTH GROUND
Anything remotely bumpy like paths in the woods or even the back garden and your child will make very slow progress and get frustrated quickly
IT’S QUICKER WITHOUT STABILISERS!!!
Stabilisers don’t teach kids to balance so when you take them off you have to start all over again! Start kids on a balance bike – they’ll have loads more fun, go faster and they’ll learn to ride a pedal bike fast!
JUST SAY NO TO STABILISERS!
Instead of using stabilisers, spend just a few hours teaching them to ride a pedal bike with our tried and tested quick method!
It doesn’t have to take ages and be painful!
