Shipping, Ordering and What's in Stock
Most of our customers receive a bike that is in stock within 2-5 business days after we ship it. All times are listed on each product page and may vary based on the color and size you would like. Keep in mind that our times and inventory listed on our website are accurate, and indicate when your bike will ship out in the size and color style of your choice! For making a tight deadline (such as a birthday) please contact us prior to ordering us to see what we can make work with available inventory.
Yes, free shipping is available to all USA customers.
Customers in Canada must cover shipping costs (see next question). Customers in Australia must also cover shipping costs and cover any costs of duties and tariffs. We can ship internationally with shipping costs added - contact us if your country is not listed during checkout.
Select woom Bikes are on amazon.ca at these links:
We do have an affiliate link on those products above. When buying to ship to Canada direct from us, shipping is a flat charge of $100 for one bike. We pay any and all additional charges taxes duties or tariffs beyond the $100 (which often ranges from $40 to $80 plus dollars). If you order more than one bike to ship to Canada, the shipping price increases. We are working on an affordable solution for our neighbors in the North but it is a slow process with unknown obstacles along the path.
Due to the expense there are absolutely no returns or exchanges accepted for any woom bikes or accessories shipped to a Canadian Address.

Sizing, no training wheels and other details questions
Why do woom Bikes 1, 2 (with the freewheel kit), 3, 4, 5 and 6 have hand brakes instead of (rear wheel) foot brakes?
Starting biking is best when the pedal is at the 1 o´clock position and the crank may get stuck in the kickstand.
An emergency stop is only possible whenever one of the pedals is positioned at the 1 o´clock position while riding. This contains significant risks as the child can only perform an emergency stop whenever the pedal is in the right position. In case the pedal is in not in the correct position in an emergency situation, your child might not be able to brake adequately.
Your child will have handbrakes sooner rather than later (on later bikes). Learning how to work both brakes is essential.
We believe that children do not need training wheels, and how quickly toddlers and children of all skill levels pick up and take off on a woom Bike is a testament to this innovative approach! Not only that, our bikes are designed in a way that attaching training wheels bought from somewhere else is not possible.
The balance bicycle teaches the most important thing: to keep your balance. After balance is mastered (which is quicker than you may be thinking!), only the pedaling has to be learned. This happens very swiftly and intuitively; a little patience and encouragement for your child will go miles! We guarantee you will be pleased with our approach that if you're not happy without training wheels, you may return the bike within 30 days of purchase.
