I had acquired a beater pedal bike that I immediately pulled the crank/chain from to serve as a balance bike. My oldest had his pedal bike with training wheels and the "balance" bike. He would use them both and would alternate between both of those and his big wheel. He was probably 5.5 or so when he told me that he wanted to remove his training wheels. I spent maybe an hour with him pushing him down the side walk to get his speed up. He got he hang of it pretty quickly. He only had a couple of minor falls. He was very excited to finally ride on his own. I need to be more proactive with my next one and I plan on getting him off of training wheels this summer.
