I hope someone can help me out.
I'm in need of traning wheels that fit on a 20" bike....
I bought a 20" BMX style bike for my 4 year old (who's the size of an 8 year old - 4ft tall, etc -- his first real bike).
He was way too big for the typical 4 year old's 16in bike. And I didn't feel like shelling out $80 for a 18" Huffy (w/ training wheels) at Toys R Us (even though he could ride it fine there).
The training wheels that we bought, I think were meant for a 16" bike, because when he rides it (he doesn't have balance down yet), one of the training wheels touch the ground, and the other ends up being 3-4" in the air. So it ends up getting out of balance quickly (unlike the 18" where it was only an inch at the most up in the air).
We have the traning wheels at low as they go -- but they're not low enough...
Anyways, I was wondering if anyone knew of where I could get some online (that are longer than the typical traning wheel that are available at the store)??
He absolutely loves his new bike (early xmas present), but unfortunately, he kind of hates it because he can't ride it without going off balance and falling.
Any suggestions?? I'm stuck because all the stores that I've been to this past week, have been made for 16" bikes.
Thanks in advance, and for all your help!
