    My daughter is 2 and obsessed with bikes because I ride them. Is a strider the way to go to start out?

    She turned 2 a week ago

    I'd say go for it, Kev. Got my kid on a Skuut (wooden version of the stryder) at 2.

    Got my little girl a strider @ 2. Worked for us, we were well on our way to full blown pedal power by 4.

    my 3 year old will not ride hers because it is missing pedals
    she knows my bike has pedals so it just pisses her off
    I tried

    FWIW, I just took the pedals off a small bike for both my kids, then we were able to put the pedals back on when they were ready.

    My little guy was on one from about a year and a half until he was three; was on pedals summer after he turned three. He took off right away without much help.

    Both my kids used a strider a lot. Great way to introduce steering and balance concepts. I've seen quite a few used ones for sale if you look a bit.

    Once your kid gets to ride, you can make her faster by running behind her with this picture of yourself...:rofl::rofl::rofl:
