You're right and got his next bike line up already which will be a bright orange Giant Animator with training wheels :)

Nice rig! If he gets the hang of it, you won't need the training wheels.

(But equally, don't let me force that point on you. If he wants to try with trainers then go for it. Took my kids, especially my daughter, a while between balance bike and pedal bike riding. I was dead set against training wheels. Probably would have been faster progress with them...)

Noosa's a bit hilly right? Think about a next bike with 2 or 3 gears...

Thanks MattyK, will see how he goes :) Noosa is hilly indeed but there are some new routes flat and fast. For now ill be running after him on his balance bike :)

I think each kid is different. My daughter didn't take to the balance bike at all and ended up going the training wheels route. Took her a while but she's off them now. Mr 2 seems to be taking to the balance bike though... time will tell!
