Can I add training wheels to the bikes?
There is an easier and quicker way to teach children to ride a bike. Over the past several years, balance bikes (bikes without pedals), have become incredibly popular by teaching children to learn to balance first. Following this same approach, we recommend leaving the pedals off our bikes and letting your child learn to balance first by pushing the bike forward with their feet. Once they start to get a hang of balancing, you can install the pedals and let them ride with you by their side. In no time, they will be riding away on their own! Lots of our customers have had success using this approach with their children. Here is a video showing this: 3 Easy Steps to Ride a Bike.

COMPATIBLE TRAINING WHEELGreat question! Below are the compatible training wheels recommendations:
- The amount of tension on the chain will change.
- The wheel can move which can cause one of the brake pads to rub on the rim.
