It is possible for kids to learn how to ride a bicycle early. Teaching them early not only gives them the ability to learn a skill and improve their balance, it can also help give them a sense of accomplishment that can boost their confidence. But for most parents, safety is always an issue. They can worry about their kids possibly falling as they try to balance on a bike. Aside from using balance wheels, parent can consider giving their kids the Doppelganger AceBike for some balance training.
The Doppelganger AceBike from Japan is a balance bike designed especially for small kids trying to develop balancing skills on a bike. It looks like any other bike with a modern design, but without pedals. Kids as young as a year old can learn how to balance while moving the bike with their feet. This way kids can focus on maintaining their balance instead of putting their feet on the pedal to move. The bikes body is made out of lightweight but durable recyclable synthetic plastic resin. This makes it an ideal bike for kids at just 3.2 kg.
What makes the Doppelganger AceBike also worth it is its ability to adjust as the kid grows. Using special tools, parents can adjust the Doppelganger AceBike frame higher as the child grows. It is an ideal bike for kids until the weigh around 55 pounds. When they reach that limit, they can then move on to bikes with pedals. The Doppelganger AceBike is a good way to teach kids balance on a bike before moving on to the real thing. This balance bike is available at the Doppelganger Japan site for around 8,000 Japanese Yen or around $80.
