SO proud of our little boy. He finally decided he was ready for a bike with pedals instead of his strider, so he used his piggy bank money to pick one out. We refused to put the training wheels on it, since he has SUCH good balance from riding his Strider for so long. I did not help him at all, just told him to ride it like his balance bike, and start pedaling when he was ready, he had it completely mastered in under an hour-this video was just after a few minutes! Makes me a TOTAL believer in balance bikes!
