I'd like to get one for my dd's 2nd bday. Has anyone tried any of the moderately priced bikes? I'm not up for spending $200-300.

Has anyone tried a Glider Rider? The seat seems to go down really low, and I like the frame design that allows the child to step through rather than swing their leg over the back of the bike.
My son is only 14, but he is EXTREMELY active and he has this Radio Flyer Trike that he flies on. He actively seeks out small hills outside to glide down with his feet up. I think I might buy a balance bike for him this summer, as he seems to just have so much fun on his trike. I think he would just go bonkers with a balance bike.
Do you mamas think that 14 months is too little for a balance bike? He is so crazy super busy, I swear his little body starts vibrating the instant he wakes up. :
i think at 14 you could probably get him a much larger bike! j/k!
those look cool. the Strider bikes have the sides to put their feet up on also. im not sure if there would be any disadvantage to having such a large middle area there (the idea of the balance bike is to teach balance early w/o the training wheels so they can progress to a regular bike).
if he can do it, i say its never too earlier (im taking it he's 14 months! ).
