    Where to find a child's bike?

    I am looking for a specific style bike and cant seem to find one and need ideas.... I am looking for a 10" bike that is (what I believe to be called) direct drive. It is chain driven without coaster breaks(able to pedal forwards and backwards) but has training wheels. I believe they will say "no brakes" in the description of them. I am looking to use it to teach my little boy how to ride a bike. If you have any ideas I would be up for hearing them...

    Check craigs list! Best place to buy a kids bike since they grow out of them soooo fast! Or if he is small enough do what I did get him a stryder bike and he will never need training wheels. My boy is 7 now and mountain bikes through stuff adults walk.

    Toys R Us had decent selection, and you could get your kid to try it out. 10in is the smallest I saw. Neighbors are great cause you can try stuff. Performance has a selection about like ToysRUs but the stuff seemed a little better imo.

    yeah, those kick bikes, stryder bikes, walk/run/jog whatever bikes...the ones with no cranks, no training wheels IMO are the way to go!

    Yup, the little stryder bikes work wonders for little ones, wont ever need training wheels. Here's Fish's 2 year old on the pump track. He's been on that 10" stryder since he could walk.
