    I saw some guy out with his little lad over the easter weekend down in Devon, the kid still had stabilisers on but was heading off down the trail like a racer, spinning the back wheel out everytime his stabilisers went over a rock. :lol: future champ!

    My daughter did the same over this weekend. She was 4 on Friday and we bought her a slightly larger bike (14" Wheels) (and didn't put the stabilisers on - as she didn't want them). This was her first time without stabilisers!

    Within 10 minutes she was balancing for 30 metres + and started getting used to the brakes. On Saturday went to the school playing fields and she immediately took off across the field. Then later in the afternoon she got the hang of starting by herself. Incredible :D
