Ehhh every bike can be durable and long lasting. I like sealed cartridge bearings over loose ball unless I am on the Track or racing and need every last bit of speed.

Late 80s - early nineties mountain bikes: the pinnacle of practical bike design?

Whenever I ride around here, I notice a trend: seemingly everyone in my area went out in 1992 and purchased a $500-$600 rigid mountain bike that has since sat in a garage and been passed around a...

In all my years I have never considered counter steering on a bike. I think it just happens instinctively at recreational levels. I can see that the need to have a greater understanding on high speed...

The balance bike approach is great advice. I would add to that explaining counter steering, i.e. that turning the handle bars right causes the bike to go left. Kids learning figure this out...

My wife was 30 and pregnant when I taught her to ride a bicycle. I didn't even take off her pedals, just lowered her seat and told her to push it like a balance bike. Within a couple of hours she...

We taught our 7 year old granddaughter this way. I actually took the pedal arms (one piece) off a 16" bike, Got her coasting. A week later, we went over to small slope and let her really coast. I...

This works well. I am involved with teaching bike safety to 5th graders, and there are always 3-4 kids who don't know how to ride. We do just what aggiegrads suggests, and have good results. I...

I agree with all the people who say take the pedals off and slam the seat. Once he masters balance, the rest is just practice.

If it turns out, due to some issue, he hasn't learned to balance...

No. it is absolutely impossible. Scientific evidence abounds. Google it.

Giving up or enjoying biking are not issues .... because adults are fundamentally incapable of learning to ride bikes.

Your last several questions are probably unanswerable because they are so dependent on the individual. For someone who has never learned to ride, the hardest part is probably learning to balance...
