  • Bike Balance Buddy

    Learning to ride a bike without stabilisers is much safer with the Balance Buddy. Once attached to your child's bike you can be pilot for a while to help stabilise them while they get a feel for proper bike riding before they go it alone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy one now! Great bit of kit - within a week of riding after tea each night for 10 mins or so my daughter could ride without my help! Really builds confidence for them, easy to fit ( need an adjustable spanner, that's all) and great for preventing backache too. Easily allows small corrections if the little one's balance is a bit off, in a way that holding under armpits or holding the seat just can't do. 02 May 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great so far Only used it once so far but makes so much more sense than bending constantly to hold the seat. 25 March 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very quick results! Just a quick review here. My four year old daughter has just had her stabiliser taken off of her bike. We were finding it difficult to hold her up in these early days of "grown-up" bike riding and this was clearly knocking her confidence. The Balance Buddy performed amazingly yesterday on its first outing around Cheddar Reservoir. In no time at all my wife and I were both managing to often let go of the handle and then just give small amounts of support, which our daughter could feel and was overjoyed that she was riding on her own at times. When you need to grab on and save an accident from happening the handle is plenty study enough and we have not lacked confidence in it. I would recommend this for a balance bike or a pedal bike (currently ours is attached to a pedal bike). 21 March 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by My daughter loves this My daughter loves this product. She hated the stabilisers and this give her a much better opportunity to perfect her balance without the danger of falling. Also, when she's tired I can push her along! 18 November 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Handy tool for little ones learning to ride I bought this for my 3 year old who is still building on his pedalling skills and needs a little push at times. As this was attached to a very small bike, the handle is still a little lower that I would have liked so I still have to bend to hold it even when it is fully extended. Would probably be more suited to a larger bike. It does the job though and I'm glad we invested in one. 28 August 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant learning aid This handle enables you to stabilize a child whilst they are learning without bending over and straining your back. It also means the child cannot feel you holding them so you can rest it on a finger as they get better. It is almost perfect but I am concerned it may be bending with use.It could do with some sort of catch so that you could just let go completely (luckily we have a doll carrier which prevents it falling). It requires tools to put on and remove - being picky wing nuts would have been better. Having said that I would recommend it as the positives by far out weigh the negatives 27 July 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved my back My daughter is learning to ride her bike and this has really saved my back bending over to support her. It has also meant we can take her bike up to school and she can learn road safety while I help her along. Easy and safe to use and I managed to fit it with limited knowledge of bikes!! 19 July 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Bought the balance buddy for my 3 year old Grandson to move up from a balance bike to a normal bike with pedals, it's brilliant and can be used to hold them up with one hand and the adjustable handle height is very useful so different height people don't need to bend. Good value for money and Halfords done a price match so even better 17 July 2015

Some of the parts we sell here at Halfords have been reconditioned. These will carry a Refundable Deposit or an extra surcharge amount. When you add one of these reconditioned items to your basket, we'll add this extra cost automatically.

Once you've sent us your old item we'll check it over, and then refund you the full surcharge as long as everything is ok.

Before you return your old unit please make sure it's in re-serviceable condition. So if you're returning caliper casings, you'll need to double check they aren't badly damaged or broken. If the part you've sent is found to be unserviceable, we reserve the right not to refund the surcharge.

Please note that if you're returning your old unit to our National Returns Centre then this will be at your own expense.
