Telltale Signs Your Rider Is Ready
1. They’ve mastered the biking basics
Balance bikes provide developmental opportunities to master the basics that you won’t find on bikes with training wheels. If your kiddo is balancing, steering, turning, and stopping your Rider may be ready for a pedal bike.
2. They don’t fit comfortably on their balance bike anymore
The woom 1 is designed for children 31” - 40” in height. The woom 1 PLUS is designed for young cyclists 37” - 43” in height. If your child no longer falls within these height ranges, they likely won’t be in the right riding position. This can cause discomfort, and discomfort can lead to frustration—it can even lead to discouragement, making your Rider not want to saddle up.
3. They’re asking for a pedal bike
It’s no secret that kids are influenced by their friends. Have you been spotting other kiddos around the neighborhood on pedal bikes? Even if you haven’t, it’s likely your young one has. Kids have an eye for things like that. If your Rider has mastered biking basics, has outgrown their bike size-wise, and is asking for a pedal bike, they’ll likely be a-ok making that transition.
