Why aren't woom bikes available with training wheels?
As training wheels, or stabilisers, are counterintuitive when it comes to developing good balance and add extra weight to a child's bike, we have purposely decided against offering them. Training wheels give your child a false sense of security and confidence in their ability – as soon as the training wheels are removed, your child has to re-learn how to stay upright and keep their balance, whilst getting to grips with the basics of cycling again. Balance bikes are therefore a much better alternative to a bike with training wheels. By beginning with a balance bike, your child learns key skills such as keeping their balance and hand-operated braking. When the time comes for them to switch to a pedal bike, they will only need to pick up pedalling, meaning that the process of learning to ride a bike is usually much quicker.
