No need to buy a new bike when your little one is ready to ride

Lightweight
Alloy Frame

The lighter the bike, the more easily it can be pushed along, steered and lifted which will give your child a great biking experience.

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.

Fast Rolling
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. 

Converts into 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.

    The best balance / pedal bike
    My daughter absolutely loves it
    She was using the balance bike for first few months and in October last year I decided to convert it to pedal bike .
    Conversion was easy and she after few attempts off she went!
    She still loves it !

  2. Andrea

    A great product! My daughter loves her Little Big Bike. Quality is excellent, assembly is easy, and customer service is excellent as well throughout the entire ordering process. I bought a Strider before (now it’s too small for my daughter), and I am extremely satisfied with the Little Big Bike, I’m sure my daughter will enjoy it for years (with hindsight, I should have bought the Little Big Bike from the very beginning since it’s absolutely ideal for all ages). Definitely recommended!

  3. Brid

    We bought this bike for our boys 2nd birthday and by 3.5years he was pedalling! Best thing we’ve ever bought without a doubt! He’s 4 years old now & he cycles outside for hours. Absolutely loves it. So sturdy & it has taken ALOT of bangs. Just about to put an order in for our 2year old girl by the request of her brother so they can cycle together

  4. Adam Pearce

    We were absolutely stunned when after only 15 minutes of practice, she was confidently riding without any support!

    Her success is a great advert for the lightweight nature and toddler-friendly handling of your bikes. I think she was also emboldened to know that she had the option of going to balance bike mode if she didn’t initially take to the pedals. She has had a balance bike for a couple of years now, so this helped familiarise her with her new bike. With any other new bike, she would have wanted the comfort blanket of stabilisers, but the balance bike option allowed us to avoid that. In the end she needed neither, but it really helped her confidence to have the option.

  5. Michael Pesicka

    I got this bike for my daughter so she could have a balance bike with real brakes. Having large hills on our street, this was sorely needed. My only regret is I wish I would’ve gotten it sooner! It instantly renewed her excitement for riding and everyday she asks to go out on her bike. She’s done so well I’ve ordered the small seat post so I can get the pedal attachment on (she’s too short to use the regular seat post with the pedals). Thanks LittleBigBikes for your amazing product!

  6. Jitna B

    We just received our bike and it’s beautiful. It’s well-built and really good quality. I love that the bike is designed so thoughtfully, so that even as a balance bike it’s height adjustable (something we didn’t have with another popular brand balance bike we previously purchased). I’m delighted we’ve purchased this, and also very appreciative of Simon’s support, as we needed to make a few specific requests for delivery, and he was incredibly helpful. I highly recommend this bike/business!

  7. Geoff Hoyle

    Just wanted to say how much fun my 4-yr old grandson is having on his littlebig bike in “balance bike” mode! He scoots around and flies down ramps with ease and is almost ready for the pedals!
    The bike is brilliantly designed, with real brakes he uses with ease, simple to assemble, and even though we live in California it arrived within a week or so from Eire in time for the holidays.
    Thanks very much – there IS a Santa Claus!

  8. Amy Glastonbury-Cole

    I had been looking for a bike for my 2 year old and wasn’t sure whether to go for a balance bike or a bike with stabilisers. When I came across Little Big Bike it seemed like the perfect answer. I know it’s a little expensive but figured if it lasts until she’s 6 or 7 then it’s worth it. The communication throughout order to delivery has been excellent. The day the bike arrived I couldn’t wait for my daughter to see it. It really is beautiful and she loves it. We went straight out for a go and my daughter took to it amazing. First time on a bike and she was able to steer and push it along whilst walking over the frame (which is how children start on a balance bike). The quality is so impressive. Light weight and well made. We love it! Thank you Little Big Bikes!

  9. Luke Tichart

    I would wholeheartedly recommend littlebig bicycles. It is a quality product, at a good price with excellent after sales service. My son loves his bike all the way from when it was a balance bike to a peddle bike, (without the faf of training wheels). Save yourself money in the long run and get this quality bike. We are based in London and we still got excellent after sales service and extra/spare parts were shipped quickly.

  10. Kelly Hartstone

    I did a lot of research before buying this bike, as I wanted something that would be excellent quality, and be appropriate for my 4YO daughter for a number of years. This bike ticks all the boxes. Excellent quality and my daughter LOVES the sparkly pink finish (although maybe consider purple as a future option?).

    Customer service is also exceptional, with LBB going above and beyond to ensure our bike arrived in time for my daughter’s birthday,

    First class, all round.

Frequently Asked Questions

The LittleBig starts as a little balance bike for kids age two or over.

Unlike most balance bikes, as your child grows, the unique frame can grow too!

The LittleBig is different to normal balance bikes as pedals can be fitted, converting it into a proper pedal bike.

For more information about balance bikes and how they work, check out this article.

We sell the balance bike and pedals separately so customers can choose to purchase the balance by itself if preferred.

It’s handy to purchase the pedals and have them ready for when your little one wants to begin pedalling.

Things might click with your kid’s confidence and coordination and you might want to strike while the iron is hot and try the pedals ASAP rather than waiting for us to send them to you. You also save the cost of posting the pedals separately.

We would not recommend using stabilisers while your child is learning to pedal. Having started on a balance bike, your child should now be comfortable gliding along independently, so the transition to pedalling will be easy. Putting stabilisers onto the LittleBig bike would be a backwards step as your child would become used their support, undoing all the good work.  You can read more information on our post balance bikes vs stabilisers.
