None... it's a "balance" bike, no pedals. They learn balance first and then go straight to a 2 wheeler.

Training wheels just delay them from riding.

Seems like a waste of money if you can't put pedals on it later.

So you paid money for a bike without an option to add pedals in the future? Then you have to pay to buy another bike that she can pedal later? Sounds like the great bike scam of 2019! :mrgreen:
