What pedal bike for my 2, nearly 3yr old son…..
So proud of Mater Petrie, he is coming on leaps & bounds on his balance bike.
So much so, he is getting rewarded with his first pedal bike this week.
The question is what is the best?
I’m liking the Specialized Hotrock……
Strictly no Halfords or Toys R Us nonsense.
Thanks in advance,

Well I had a look around, and came to the conclusion that Tesco do them for approx £50 and much, much lighter than most apart from the Isla, which is stupidly expensive and over engineered for a bike that will get trashed.
Also don’t expect a 3 yr old who can ride a balance bike with ease to just get on a pedal bike and ride off.Posted 4 years agotinsyMember
Having used a Hotrock, Schwinn mini mesa, little Kona something and a giant MTX, I have just got my 4yo a Cnoc 16 and it is light years ahead of the others.
Resale value with an Isla bike will even it all out…
This is exactly how it is, even the might of Specialized does not come close. Just pop onto the Isla website, use the sizing guide, but do not stray from it becuase it is absolutley spot on. Unless you child is very big it will be the Cnoc 14 your looking at.
3 years & 4 days, 1st ride on his. He is absolutely flying on it now at 3 1/2Posted 4 years ago
Rose got her islabike on thursday too. Rode it 100m or so without being held after about 20 minutes of playing. She is slightly older mind, 3 and 2 months now, and had done a ridiculous amount of balance biking. I am totally sold on the whole balance biking teaching the hard bits of biking thing now.
Also really like the islabike, you can see looking at it why it cost so much, very well built and thought out, and having carried it up the hill from the park a couple of times, the weight makes a difference to me, she can even pick it up herself, and was trying to ride it up a hill earlier. All the other ones recommended were at least half as heavy again, which is a big difference.Posted 4 years ago
