Another new bike for daughter
My dauighter (2y7m) has a Specialized HotWalk (no pedals, teaches balance) and she can ride it on a slight downhill (what the bike was designed for) and lift her feet off the ground for abot 2-3 seconds at a time and maintain balance.
The thing is, with summer nearly leaving us, I want her to gain a little bit of freedom and get her a bike with pedals. I know she's not ready to ride a pedal'd bike without stabalizers, bt if I add stabalizers, I afraid she might unlearn the balancing skills she's already picked up.
So should I buy another bike with pedals and stabalizers for the remainder of summer, or let her continue on the "learn-to-balance" bike with no pedals? Cycling is all about enjoyment right? So I'm thinking of just getting her the bike...
