No need to choose between a balance bike and a pedal bike.
LittleBig is both!
The lighter the bike, the more easily it can be pushed along, steered and lifted which will help your child cycle with confidence.
The LittleBig frame is made from 6061-T6 aluminium which is commonly used in road and mountain bikes due to its light weight and durability. In short, the frame is carefully designed to give your child the best start on two wheels.
14 Inch Wheels
The LittleBig 14 inch balance bike wheel gives a stable ride and glides over a range of terrain with ease. Forest trails, school rides, BMX track, pump track, these tyres can handle it all.
The air-filled rubber tires are comfortable, grippy, and easily replaceable should they eventually wear out. The lightweight alloy rims roll on sealed cartridge bearings which are quiet and will run smoothly for years.
A Real Bike
Not A Toy
LittleBig is hand-assembled in Ireland with proper parts, including a lightweight pivotal saddle, alloy riser handlebar and forged alloy BMX-style stem. These are all adjustable to ensure the bike is the perfect fit for your child, allowing them to push their limits and explore new adventures.
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?.

Edwina O’Connor –
Absolutely brilliant little bikes! We were so impressed with the first one, we bought a second one for our child’s little brother.
Our children transitioned easily from the little balance bike through to the pedal stage. The eldest moved straight to a BMX afterwards and his brother is just about to move up to that stage too.
These LittleBig bikes helped with confidence and we love there was no need for cycling aids such as stabilisers.
They’re sturdy, durable and we highly recommend

The bike is good quality and beautiful color. It arrived fast and happy with the whole procedure. Wonderful instructions helped put the bike together. It was a gift and love at first sight!
Samantha Fisher (verified owner) –
I recently bought two of these bikes for my 3 & 5 year old children. They arrived within a couple of days and were very easy to put together and adjust to their heights. It’s very cleverly designed and adjusts to the larger frame very quickly and with ease. I utilised the WhatsApp business chat function with a technical enquiry whilst fitting the pedals and got a rapid and thorough response. Both my children and I couldn’t be happier!
Lucie P. –
We bought this bike for our 2 1/2 yo son, an he loves it from the minute we unpacked it. Very easy to assemble, lovely, bright colours, lightweight. He uses it without the peddals at the moment, so cant tell more abou that. Stil needs to figure out how to use the breaks properly:) But overall very pleased, highly recomended.

– Searched possible bikes that start off as a strider and become pedal. So few to find.
– This was literally the only bike after months of searching that fit our needs and for the relatively medium/small size of our 4 year old.
– He is so excited about the rugged tires and the brakes. And looking forward to pedals when he gets taller.
– The quality is just top notch for the kind of bike it is. Especially being light enough.
– The shipping was a breeze. Did not know about the customs to U.S. but it turned out to be not an issue and just passed right through.
– He is already rolling down bid hills and pump tracks working on braking control.
– It is the most excited and engaged i have seen him in a sport so far.
* Have not tried the pedal yet, but did buy the kit for future.
