Just been getting my son into the no stabiliser thing.
We talked about them for a while, and every bike he sees now he says whether the bike does or doesn't have stabilisers. If they haven't, they must be big boys.
Yesteday took them off for the first time. Started by holding his back for support and just letting go for a little, and a bit longer.
After 30 mins of starting him off, he could ride 40 feet or so with me following behind, arms ready.
That was enough for one day, so as not to get tired or bored.
Went out again today, and he can now ride almost indefinately, as long as theres not much turning needed. Taught him to put his foot down when he slowes down too.
He still cant start off yet.
I was pretty pleased though as he is only 3
12" wheel Dawes. Red.
