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?.

Great product and service

According to my grandson who I gave it to yesterday, “I like it real good.“
I’m an amateur bike mechanic and appreciate good components. I have shopped far and wide for a kid’s bike that would really impress me. This is it!
As I said to my grandson, it has big bike parts like mine. That’s what really impressed me. It’s real solid yet light weight, has truly functional hand brakes, and a real headset for the handlebars. The wheel bearings are smooth and solid as well as on the pedal assembly. Who would’ve thought on a kids bike! He likes to ride fast, and there’s lots of dirt roads and hills around here. I wanted him to be safe on a good functional bike. I’m very pleased! Thank you all for a wonderful product!
Oh, and this bike made it all the way to Hawaii. The box was so beat up that I actually took pictures for fear there was damage. The packing was so well done that the bike was in pristine condition.
Simon Evans (store manager) –
HeyPat, thanks a million for your thorough review. It’s wonderful to get such feedback from our customers. Delighted to hear that both you and your grandson love the bike. Very cool to think of the LittleBig ripping up the trail in Hawaii! Best wishes, Simon Evans : )

I honestly couldn’t have had a more positive experience with this bike- Simon and the team at little big are the most responsive to questions. They also happily adjusted the brakes to US standards, swapped out a white seat for a black one, and even asked if I wanted the wiring to match- at no extra cost. Its such a well made and thoughtfully designed bike- I looked everywhere for a bike that didn’t feel wasteful and would transition to a pedal. My son is over the moon and our cyclist friend who helped put together the bike commented on how nicely made it was. Literally THE BEST! thank you so much <3
John Fallon –
The bike is wonderful. Thanks to Simon and the team for building such a lovely bike. My grandson loves it. The LittleBig is such high quality and I love that it will last him for many years.

My sister and I bought Our little nephew this bike for his birthday and Xmas present. His favourite colour is green.
We live in Australia so unfortunately had to watch via video as it was given to him. My Dad unboxed it and was delighted with the quality and craftsmanship of the bike, lets just say he is a hard man to please.
We were particularly happy that the bike has several ways to adjust it so it will grow with Bert, which means less waste and a happier environment.
Couldn’t be happier. Now scared for the videos we will be getting of him on the pump track with it! No fear!

Dear Simon – Loving the WhatsApp function. Shows how in touch you are with your customers and potential customers. Just wanted to say that I get so many compliments and much interest shown towards our Littlebig. My daughter learnt how to ride with the pedals with her Littlebig in less than 10 minutes. It was incredible… She felt so comfortable and I think having a bike that she was used to manoeuvring and steering as a laufrad helped her feel comfortable from the get go. Many thanks for all yours and team’s effort to make Littlebig as secure, light, attractive, cost effective and sustainable as possible. It is a design that will stand the test of time! Continue the great work . You are a problem solver and a super innovator!

What a great concept and great little bike. I wish I would have known about this sooner when our son was a toddler. I was looking for a larger balance bike for our asd 4 year old. This should hold us over for a few more years. I’ll hopefully be buying the pedals next year.

This is a lovely little bike! Took my 4yo grandson to the BMX track, national standard, so big. He got round great with balance bike mode. Was coasting loads at the end, able to manhandle the bike himself on any ‘sticky’ bits and starthill. Pedals on next week! Great quality nice looking bike, highly recommend
