    1 review for Kidvelo Rookie 18 Balance Bike – Neon Green

    1. Sam B.

      I bought my son a Specialized pedal bike after he had clearly mastered his first balance bike, but he refused to pedal it! Just no confidence. After a year of failure, I bought him this 18″ Kidvelo and left the pedals off so he could ride it in balance bike mode. The second day he was begging me for the pedals, so that weekend I installed them, very skeptical that he would attempt to pedal. Boy was I wrong, he took off like a rocket before I could even get out my camera! He just needed a lighter bike so he could get over that transition from a balance bike. The Specialized was too heavy and intimidating. Overall he still loves this Kidvelo better than the Specialized, and loves riding it daily. I wish I had bought this instead of the bigger bike, but I’ll save it for when he grows out of this. Kidvelo is amazing, I’ve been recommending these 2 in 1 bikes to everyone. My 2-year-old is now happily enjoying the smaller Kidvelo Rookie 12, so we are a Kidvelo family!
