BALANCE BUDDY REVIEW

Balance buddy is the new bicycle that has been getting a lot of attention. The Balance Buddy quickly attached to the bike frame and mounts to the outside of the back wheel . It was easy to install and very easy to remove. Since it’s adjustable it’s comfortable to use. The child hops on the bike and you hold on to the handle for stability. The handle is sturdy, strong and allows you to easily control the bike in case the little one starts to head into trouble.
