-- The Mocka balance bikes are making a real name for themselves in Australia and more and more Aussie kids can be seen riding around on them. Mocka knows how important it is when it comes to choosing a suitable first bike for your child. Their wooden Balance Bikes [ http://www.mocka.com.au/

Mocka have a range of bikes with adjustable seats that are designed to grow with your child until they are ready to step up to a big bike. Mocka Balance Bikes are a proud My Child Excellence Award Winner, proving they’re a real favourite for many Aussie parents.
Balance bikes are better for teaching children to ride than other bikes because they are smaller. This allows the child to straddle the bike while keeping both feet firmly planted on the ground. A parent can use a regular bike to accomplish much of what a balance bike does, except it is hard to find bikes small enough for really little children.
To use a regular bike in the same way one would use a balance bike, the pedals need to be removed. This allows the child to move their feet freely without kicking the pedals of the bike. The seat should be lowered to its lowest possible position too. The child should be comfortable standing over the bike. A regular bike can be used to teach a child to ride just like a balance bike is used, but the above modifications may keep a parent from wanting to use a regular bike. The biggest mistake parents make when using a regular bike in the same way as a balance bike is that they often want to buy a bike that is too big and let the child grow into it. A bike that is too big for the child to control will cause unnecessary fear and may keep the child from wanting to practice on the bike and maybe put them off for good!
