training wheels - shmaining wheels

A bike without pedals, why did someone not think of this sooner?! When you learn to ride a bike with training wheels you are not really learning much about balance...and the day those training wheels come off you quickly learn that.  After many wipe outs, cuts and bruises you one day catch on and it's all smooth sailing from there.  But imagine if you first learned to balance and later learned to pedal, brilliant.

The Smart Balance Bikes are made from wood that was harvested from a replenishable source, with non toxic paint and formaldehyde-free glue.  Kids can start using them around the age of 3 and will be on it until they are 4 or 5.  

And just to top it off they come in at under the half the price of their predecessor, the Likeabike, without losing the modern, sleek design.
