Heritage's recycled milk jug balance bike takes away gears and chains, bringing riding back to basics: balance. Re-designed and manufactured by Loll Designs, with a low bike seat and easy-to-reach Arbor wood handles, this bicycle is suitable for children as young as two, though the adjustable seat will allow your little one to comfortably use the bike until age five or six, when he or she prepares for pedaling.
We created the Bennett Balance Bike in collaboration with Arlan DeRussy. The cut-out frame was influenced by design styles found in Chicago’s bridges. Furthermore, the rounded seat corners and easy-to-grip handlebar make the balance bike both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
For those looking to take the Bennett Balance Bike up a notch, we offer the Bennett Legacy Edition, which adds a Brooks saddle to the original Bennett model. Brooks has 125 years of experience in leather bicycle components. Additionally, the brooks saddle can be removed from the balance bike and placed on just about any bicycle into which your child grows – all the way through adulthood. Brooks components are a rarity, a purchase that literally lasts a lifetime.
The Bennett Balance Bike places your little tyke onto a bicycle early and lets him or her learn to balance on two wheels, thus leaving out bulky 3-wheelers and annoying, shaky training wheels. Balance bikes give your child a low seat on which to sit, while still keeping his or her feet on the ground. As your child’s comfort level grows, he or she will begin to steer and pick up speed. Balance bikes have been proven to build confidence while smoothing the transitional process to a lifetime of two-wheeled bicycle riding.
