Balance bike bag

There are plenty of accessories available for balance bikes, so even once you have decided upon the best size, colour, model and type of balance bike – there are plenty of ways to make your child’s ride even more enjoyable and stylish!

Some manufacturers offer a great range of accessories to complement their bikes, especially Puky who offer some great helmets as well as bags.

Puky Wheel Bag

Puky LRT Wheel Bag
  • Fits most Puky balance bikes
  • Clips conveniently to the frame
  • Storage for water bottles, clothes or toys
  • Includes carry strap

The Puky Wheel Bag is a great option if you are looking for a balance bike bag.

It fits all Puky balance bikes, (except the LR ride) and it clips securely into place on the frame so the rider can keep everything they might need during their ride to hand.

These items could include a water bottle which would come in useful during hot summer rides, extra clothes if they get muddy during their ride or just their favourite toys they like to carry around with them everywhere!

This bag also comes equipped with a built in carry strap, so this means that the bike will be easy to transport if the child has had enough of riding for one day and is getting tired. The strap means that you can easily carry the bag over your shoulder, and this in itself will usually cost almost £10 so it is well worth investing in the bag as well.

The Puky Learner bike bag will set you back around £20 and is available in several colours so there should be a bag to match the bike that you decide upon.

Janod Bikloon Balance Bike with Bag

The Puky Wheel bag comes as an accessory to the Puky range of bikes, but some other bikes include a bag as an extra with the initial purchase.

This is the case with the Janod Bikloon racing wooden balance bike, which is an excellent wooden balance bike with a stylish red design.

The bag is easily clipped to the front of the bike, so it provides easy access to water bottles, snacks and toys.

Other features of this balance bike include inflatable tyres, a height adjustable saddle between 39cm – 44cm and a bell so that everyone will know they are coming!

You may not have thought of a balance bike bag as an accessory when looking for the best balance bike, but these bags look great and will give the child even more independence if they have somewhere to store everything they need while they are out and about without having to rely on Mum and Dad all the time!

Specialized are well known in the cycling industry for producing high specification bikes for all ages, so it is no surprise that the Specialized Hotwalk Balance Bike is one of the best quality models available for toddlers and early riders.

The Specialized Hotwalk Balance bike has been relaunched, with a redesigned frame and a longer wheelbase for more stable riding.

The Specialized Hotwalk Balance bike is highly recommended to be purchased for children from the age of 2 onwards, although the saddle height of 34cm - 43cm may make it more suitable for 3 year olds. The tough and rugged design should last riders of this age right through to their first pedal bike.

Specialized balance bike key features

The Specialized Hotwalk Balance Bike for 2020 now has a lower starting saddle height so it is suitable for children from 82cm in height.

Another key feature is the step through frame, which makes the bike easier to access for younger children. This is a similar feature to some of the other great bikes for 2 year olds like the Puky LRM balance bike and the Weeride Deluxe.

Specialized have previously offered different frames for boys and girls, but this has now all changed with a standard frame including the step through frame and a footrest. Younger children will also enjoy the footrest which comes in handy as they ride along.

The Specialized Hotwalk Balance bike is at the higher end of the price range for balance bikes, but this does include quality features such as a frame which is constructed from Specialized A1 Premium Aluminium which helps to keep the weight of the bike down.

The bike also includes alloy rims and a Specialised Kid’s Henge padded seat for a comfortable ride. The tyres are Rhythm Lite Airless tyres so they will never get a puncture, and they also provide fantastic traction.

Appearance wise, this bike looks top of the range with a stylish design that is available in a choice of green, blue, pink or red.

Overall, this is a top quality balance bike which will last the test of time and will retain its value or can be passed down to friends and family.
