Not even three weeks since we took the training wheels off... he took a fall today and wound up with a broken clavicle. I'm so sad for him.
Here's my question: He was riding a small bike with VERY small wheels (maybe 12 in?). I think the frame size is right for him, but with the wheels being so small, he'd wind up turning very tight circles. He had several other near misses and a few other falls while riding this way (tight circles) and despite our admonitions he continued to do it (he IS a 3 1/2 year old...) So my husband thinks we need to put him on a bike with bigger wheels. We've got one, and he can ride it, but to me it looks big. What are your thoughts and opinions on this? I'm just not sure which one would be safer?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
