What is the difference between a Trybike and the Banwood First Go?

Both bikes have a nice steel design and are very similar at first sight. You always buy the First Go from Banwood with two wheels and is primarily a balance bike where your child must be able to keep some balance. Does a child learn to cycle on a balance bike with two wheels? Then it is usually a little easier to switch to a bicycle with pedals (without training wheels).

After all, your baby is already used to maintaining balance. The Trybike is for sale as a balance bike with two wheels or with three wheels. The tricycle is already suitable for children from 15 months.

You can then set the saddle to the lowest position. Is your little flamingo ready for a new adventure? Then you can easily disassemble the third wheel and convert the tricycle into a two-wheeler.


The first real bicycle (from 4 years)

Wooden pedals and an aluminum frame: how beautiful is this 16-inch bicycle from Banwood. It was inspired by vintage bicycles, combined with Scandinavian design.

The wicker basket is ideal for transporting your doll or cuddly toy and matches nicely with leather handles and saddle.

In addition, this bicycle with pedals is equipped with reflectors, a bell and lights, safety first. (for sale from €259)
