When I started this blog, I never thought I'd be blogging about comfort bikes nor kids bikes. Well, here it is - a little tech for the little tike. A start-up company (GyroBike) using technology developed at Dartmouth College is looking to replace training wheels with a gyroscope. The g'scope is in the front wheel ($40) mountable to any kid's bike and works by turning the handlebars towards the direction the bike is falling. Pretty clever if you ask me. There is a short video on their website that you can check out.
If, however, your kids can never get the hang of two-wheeled bikes, I say stick with Big-wheels. I never knew a more fun time in my life.
