Build Your Bundle
No need to choose between a balance bike and a pedal bike.
LittleBig is both!
14 Inch Wheels
The LittleBig balance bike with 14-inch wheels gives a stable ride and glides over bumps better than the 10″ or 12″ wheels found on most standard balance bikes.
The wheels feature air-filled rubber tires, which are comfortable, grippy, and easily replaceable should they eventually wear out. They roll on sealed cartridge bearings which are quiet and stay smooth for years.
A Real Bike
Not A Toy
LittleBig is hand-assembled in Ireland with high quality parts, including a lightweight pivotal saddle, alloy riser handlebar and forged alloy BMX-style stem. These are all adjustable to ensure the bike is perfect for your child.
V-brakes front and rear ensure your little one can stop quickly and safely. Short-reach alloy brake levers work with little hands.
Both a Balance Bike
And A Pedal Bike
Fitting the separate pedal kit to the balance bike converts it into a pedal bike. When your little one is ready to begin pedalling, just add these and off they go!
Having learned to balance first, your child’s transition to pedalling will be easy, and usually only takes a few short goes.

Frequently Asked Questions
The LittleBig starts as a little balance bike for kids age two or over.
What sets our design apart is that the unique frame grows bigger as your child grows. And when they are ready to start pedalling, LittleBig can be transformed into a proper pedal bike.
Even though it starts as a balance bike with 14 inch wheels, the LittleBig has a similar saddle height to many 12 inch balance bikes.
These unique features allow it to be used for up to 4 years and take the place of at least two bikes.
For more information check out our in-depth balance bike guide.
We sell the balance bike and pedals separately so customers can choose to purchase the balance bike by itself if preferred.
Purchasing the pedal kit with the bike means you will have them ready for when your little one wants to begin pedalling and you save yourself the cost of posting the pedals separately at a later date.
We would not recommend using stabilisers (known as training wheels in the USA) while your child is learning to pedal.
Starting on a LittleBig balance bike, your child will naturally learn the core cycling skills of balancing, steering and braking. So when you add the pedals to their bike, the transition to pedalling will be easy!
You can read more information on our post balance bikes vs stabilisers (training wheels), which is best?.

We were looking for a bigger balance bike because little one was really comfortable on a balance bike and we didn’t want him to go any faster. This one has been excellent and the after sales service has been outstanding. Will happily recommend and mostt likely buy another for the next child when the time comes . Sometimes expensive things are worth it.

Great idea, amazing bikes, fantastic build quality. Purchase our first little bike bike after A LOT of research 18months ago. Super light, two brakes, space to grow & saves money longer term.
Just purchased a second LittleBig Bike for my youngest child (small 2 1/2 yo), he took straight to it after outgrowing his tadpole mini. He easily lifts & manoeuvres it despite his size.
Both kids love their bikes spending hours on them most weekends.
We’ll balanced bikes with two brakes making riding great fun & safe.
Just need to convince my eldest (4yo)to put on his pedals. 😂
Keep up the good work!

My second purchase as I have previously bought one for my son. Hes now 5 and has been riding bikes for over a year without the need of ever needing stabilisers. My daughter loves her new balance bike and hopefully she will pick it up as quickly as my son. These bikes are very good quality and so easy to build and to also convert. I would very highly recommend.
Art MacManus –
What a bike! I got the bike from my brother after his three kids had used it. It’s now going on to the second of our kids, being switched from little to big bike, to big bike with pedals for each kid. Our son learnt to cycle on it in no time. He was really comfortable on it. He’s used it as a balance bike, on pump tracks and for longer cycles. The v-brakes are a nice touch. High quality and built to last a very long time. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough! Well done on such a great concept.

Just purchased our second Little Big bike, we were so impressed by the first one we bought in 2021 for our daughter that we never looked anywhere else for our son’s bike. they love that the bikes match, son is 2 and daughter is 3. incredibly solid, light weight, and easy to switch between sizes. we have the pedal kits for both but our daughter hasn’t made it that far yet. she can balance as far as she can glide. 10/10 would recommend.

I purchased the bike for my 5 year old girl 2 year ago and she picked it up very quickly was peddling in no time..now my youngest daughter who is 3 is flying around on it and I’m sure she will be peddling soon enough too it’s a great way to get them started they progress so fast..an excellent buy would and have recommended it to friends and family.. thanks Simon for all your help 👍 🙏

After a lot of research I purchased a littlebig bike for my three year old daughter. It’s a perfect balance bike for her and I can see it will last as we add the pedals and as she grows. I have since recommended to friends. It’s excellent quality, light enough that she can pick it up and straight forward to assemble. Really pleased with it – money we’ll spent!
Kevin O’Kane –
Superb bike. Brilliant way to learn to cycle – and by time I put the pedals on, my eldest son was cycling on his own at his first attempt. I bought the bike around 2015. All 3 of my children learned on and used the bike and is now being used by my nephew. Its made to last and have had minimal repairs (replacing some washers and cables only). I wish everything else we bought was designed and constructed with the parents and users needs in mind – everything is throw away these days….but NOT the little bigger! Love it.
Declan Ryan –
Absolutely brilliant, it has saved me so much money.I bought one for my son a few years back and his little sister has just started using it now. The build quality is second to none. I have been telling people about this ever since we got ours.
