"We purchased these wheels after we had tried for many many years to help our daughter learn to ride a two-wheeler independently. She has global developmental delays and struggles with balance and coordination/motor planning. She had nearly mastered balancing without training wheels, but had grown so much she needed a bigger bike. Once she had a bigger bike, we were back to square one with learning to balance, steer, pedal, brake, etc. Due to her size, it was getting harder for my to run alongside her to help stabilize her when needed, and, after a bad fall this summer (it literally took months for her scrapes to heal), she was DONE trying, and, truth be told, so was I.
When I saw these wheels I realized this might be just what we needed to allow our sweet girl to ride her bike with us and actually enjoy it, focusing instead on steering and speed, rather than having to worry about balance. So far, so good! She has been out for several rides with us, and we're really happy with how well the wheels perform. It took my husband (super dad) a good solid hour or so to get them properly mounted on the bike. I'm hopeful that these stabilizing wheels will allow Bella--and all of us--to enjoy family bike rides now, without feeling defeated and discouraged."
"I am all smiles and having so, so much fun riding my bike!!! I have not been on a bike since I was a kid. Product as described and fast shipment!! Anyone who is thinking about getting this product for physical therapy or if you just have trouble riding a bike and need extra assistance, Go ahead and buy it...
...Before my hip reconstruction surgery, I use to be in a motorized wheelchair. Now I am riding a bike and walking! Because of this product, I am able to ride a bike and build up muscles that I've never used since birth (along with land pt). I can't say enough about this product! It has opened up a whole new world of cycling to me. Without these stabilizers, I would have never in my wildest dreams been able to experience bike riding let alone the bike trails in Colorado! As soon as I can I am going to post a video of my riding! I am up to riding 5 miles on my bike and I've been going out every day. Well I have to go now, The bike trail is calling me!! lol."
"One of my children has special needs. We've worked hard for years to help her ride a bike like her siblings but it just doesn't seem to happen for her. She's tall for her age so the children's training wheels are no longer working. My husband and I decided to invest in these stabilizing wheels for her and we are so glad we did. She is finally able to ride independently and freely without one of us holding on to her bike. Her face the first time she rode her bike on her own made this purchase worth every penny. The nice thing is that the wheels still allow enough of a wobble that it allows her brain and muscles to practice doing some of the balance correcting necessary for bike riding, yet it's stable enough she is able to stand and peddle."
"My daughter has dyspraxia so many things have been a real challenge for her to master. With her effort and hard work over the years she's been chipping away at that achievement list and these wheels allow her to add bicycling to her list. To see the absolute joy on her face and to hear her talk about the freedom to pedal around town has been the best gift...
In the end, I cannot recommend them enough. Probably the best purchase I've made for my kid and myself."
