Training Wheel InstallationUpdated 4 months ago

How to install training wheels:

First, please note that our training wheels are only compatible with our 16" & 20" Small models.   For the 20" Small Airos bike you will use a 26T axle extender and bend the training wheel support arms inward (see guide below)


Follow these setup guides for help

20" Small Airos


IMPORTANT - When you install the training wheels, make sure to only loosen one of the rear "wheel axle nuts" at a time (see attached image). Do not loosen both sides at the same time. The goal is to make sure the wheel doesn't move when you install the training wheels. If you loosen both wheel nuts at the same time, the wheel can slide forward or backwards in the "dropouts" causing these two issues.

1. The amount of tension on the chain will change.
2. The wheel can move causing one of the brake pads to rub on the rim.

Here is a video also to help show you the install - https://vimeo.com/443148037
