I am still struggling with 5yr old - trying to teach him how to ride a bike 🚲
Try removing the pedals. Our kids learned in 3 days. Of course that meant within 3 days I removed and then replaced the pedals on two bikes lol

It's ok if your kids are slower than others. Not all kids are the same. Don't rush them. Let them grow naturally. If your kids start to walk by their 12th month, they could start using balance bike at the 18th month. If they begin to b walk, say around 15 month, then you may want to wait out and get them they bike that suits their size when they are ready to learn how to bike.
this isnt about slow/fast
i just imagine most kids learn to walk on avg around 12 months, so trying to balance a bike, never mind just ride it 6 months later seems aggresive

i am surprised about all the people who have moved that far.

guess i never pushed!

I have the red flyer balance bike, bought for my daughter around her 3rd birthday. She hardly looks at the thing, much less touches it. Her 18mo younger brother has expressed some interest but he's not tall enough to reach the ground even w seat at lowest setting. They both fall back to her pink tricycle that she will soon outgrow but has mastered and he refuses to pedal.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to get my daughter off the stupid tricycle and onto the balance bike? I'm sure if she saw me and/or mom actually riding a bike that would be a good start
You can also try removing the tricycle from view when you ask her if she wants to go on a bike ride around the block or something; make it something special you can only do on a bike. Maybe a walk around the block, brother in the stroller and you and her on bikes?

Tell her that it's time for the tricycle to be put away and her to learn to ride a big girl bike.

We did that when our 3yo transitioned from a balance bike to a pedal bike. She was so upset to have to give it up. So over the course of a few days I reminded her that we'd be putting it away soon and to start saying goodbye. Then the day before I straight let her know the balance bike would be put away tomorrow. Then the day came. I had her say goodbye to it and then hung the balance bike up in storage to wait for our newborn at the time to get big enough to use it.

This may not work for you at all or may work perfectly. We've found that these little humans just want some semblance of control and input into decisions that impact them rather than just being blindsided with a unilateral decision.
Totally get the whole control issue (we have a "three-nager") but the problem with any attempted transition like this (or really any activity, ever) is trying to get both the 18mo and a 3yo onboard with the same idea.

Step 3: put pedals on and raise seat. Put seat where they still can touch both feet on the ground at the same time.

This had my son riding on his own without training wheels by 3.
Step 3 is where some people will have issues with this method. Standard 12" bikes often only go down to 18" minimum seat height. Meaning the child's inseam has to be that length.

If you have either short children or long torso kids this will delay their ability to ride.

Balance bikes can go really low, some are like 10" minimum. This opens them up to the bike earlier.

It appears the balance bike in this deal only goes down to 15". Not sure how that would be accessible to an 18 month old..

Our balance bike goes down to 12". I ended up with a Woom 2 for the first pedal bike as it goes down to 15" and weighs under 12lbs. We had our first girl, who is short AND long torso..., riding the pedal bike alone 1 month after her 3rd birthday.


*note* I'm not disputing your advice. It's fantastic and cost efficient. I meant this to cite some limitations of that method.

Is the seat comfortable or rock-hard?
