Great choice for a little guy (or girl!)
We decided to get our 22 month old a balance bike so I did extensive research before deciding on which to purchase. There are so many options on the market it can be a little overwhelming. I'm so glad we went with the Cruzee! First off, it is so light. Our son has no problem picking it up to get on it and even carrying it into the garage. I love the color and the fact that it won't rust. The seat is low so it's good for the young ones, he's tall but we could go lower if we needed it. It's a bit more expensive than the other more popular brands, but much better made. Very satisfied!

Great bike! Light weight & no tools required!
Purchased this bike for my daughter's 3rd birthday. We love it! She is very tall, coming in around 40." I love that the seat and handle bars are adjustable and also that it comes with a longer seat for when she gets older (we are no where close to needing it now). The color of the bike is beautiful and the frame seems to be of excellent quality. The zipper on her boots scraped against it her entire "ride" and there's not a mark on the bike. The bike is also very light. She throws it around easily.
I did a lot of research on bikes and I was torn between this one and the Strider. We definitely made the right decision!

Best bike for smaller height and weight kids.
Ideally a bike should not be more than 15% the child's weight, so this was a better option for our kid who is below 5 percentile in weight. At 32inches height he could sit comfortably at the lowest setting seat height. We have this bike for around 8 months now and our super cautious, risk averse child who is not your average kid when it comes to any sports or adventure has learned to cruise comfortably on this thing. If he can use this bike anyone can, because he is the sort who at age 3 wouldn't even go down a slide. Between his tricycle, power wheels and this balance bike, this is the one ride that he and I love the most because it's light weight, it is faster than walking but not too fast, he can cruise comfortably, it gives him autonomy and if he gets tired I can carry him and his bike without issues. In the city and distant places we can haul the bike right on to his umberella stroller without issues ( see pic). This was the best purchase ever. To people who say it has no pedals, well it's not supposed to. Also, the shiny anodized color is cool looking and so far hasn't scratched. My kid has ridden this bike in rain (see pic) and 1 inch snow without issues.

Wish we had gotten this first!
My 3.5 year old tried to ride a bike with training wheels for about a week, but it was terrible - he fell a lot, couldn't get it to move, and was nervous while riding. All of our friends told us to get a balance bike instead. This one seemed great, and we haven't been disappointed! Within a few days, he was zipping up and down our driveway. After a few weeks, he has become quite adept at controlling it and has gotten the hang of balancing. He's fallen a couple of times, but because it's low to the ground, he has not hurt himself at all and gets right back on. He is not an exceptional athlete or a daredevil - this is just really easy to pick up, and he's thrilled that he's so mobile. He wants to ride every day now! It's also so lightweight that he can carry it anywhere if he needs to, and it helps encourage him to put it away at the end of the day. It's also a well made, good looking bike. Awesome purchase!!

This was a gift for my son's 2nd birthday. He was so excited about it! He immediately wanted to try out his "blue bike." He only spent a couple minutes on it at first. I suspect he was just a little too young for it. Two months later, he can scoot along on the bike slowly, but is definitely not riding it yet. I'm excited to see him figure this bike out as he gets a little older. I love how light it is. My son can actually pick it up by himself. If it falls over on him, I don't have to worry about him getting hurt. The blue color is really bright. It could definitely be used for either a boy or girl.

It's super easy to assemble
We got this bike for our 3 YO son. He absolutely loves it. It's sooo light, even he can carry it. It's super easy to assemble, you don't even need tools, and adjusting the seat and handle takes seconds. The wheels are made of a sturdy material and they don't look like they will go flat or break. The best part (aside from the very easy assembly, 10-15 mins tops) is that when he gets tired and we're still halfway home, we can carry it like nothing. It is expensive but it is ABSOLUTELY WORTH the price. He just started using it, so I'll update if the quality seems to diminish significantly over time. But right now, it's a definite "buy it" recommendation.

Wow! THE favorite Christmas present of all!
We love the Cruzee. We bought it for our youngest son, just 16 months old, who is on the taller side. With 3 older siblings who were getting bikes for Christmas, we wanted to get a bike for him. My research led me to the cruzee and it didn’t disappoint. The cruzee is the favorite present out of all 4 of my kids (ages 7,6, 3, 16 mo). We have to continually remind the older children to let their little brother ride his bike!
But besides it being a hit with older kids, it is a joy to watch my son on his cruzee. He “got it” almost instantly - on the absolute lowest settings. After about 3 weeks of riding, he really glides on it and gets some speed! It works indoor or outdoor. We’ve actually just had it inside until today, and it’s been great just making loops inside the house.
Even though they are WAY too big for it, I honestly believe riding the cruzee helped my older children gain the balance aspect of riding their new two-wheelers. So, I have seen the benefits of the balance bike over the training wheel approach. The oldest two learned to ride their “big kid” bikes today in about 5 minutes after playing on their little bro’s Cruzee.
Other thoughts: it requires assembly when you get it, but it does not require any tools. It’s really simple to put together. Also, it is light enough for my 16 month old to carry it around. It’s super light, which is great! The kids do get the seat or handlebars out of alignment occasionally, but that’s an easy adjustment. The only downside I’d say is the price, but the joy we’ve had from it makes it well worth it!

Worth the money!
My tall 5 year old grandson had difficulties riding his bike. He once tried without the training wheels and didn't want to do it again.
After 3 days on the Cruzee, he rode his bike without the training wheels. It was amazing to witness it. A great balance bike!
The Cruzee is easy to assemble, extremely light and well built.

Great for petite riders
bought this for my two year old - she's very petite and barely hitting the 10th percentile for height and weight. I needed something light that she could maneuver and this is as light as advertised. She can easily pick it up and the step through is low enough she can get a leg over to sit on the bike. I was worried with how small she is that she wouldn't be tall enough to ride it, but on the lowest level she can sit fine on the seat (I measured her inseam ahead of time and was reasonably confident with the seat height it would work). The bike offers plenty of room for growth, even coming with a second seat post to allow taller kids to ride. She's had it a few hours and is already happy riding it around the basement. It'll be even better once the snow stops and we can get it outside. From a parent's perspective, the instructions to assemble the bike were very clear and I had it together in about five minutes without any issues.

MUST HAVE! LIGHT AND GREAT QUALITY!
Wow! I am VERY impressed with this balance bike! It is pricey compared to most balance bike in the market, but it sure is the LIGHTEST! I already have too much that I carry around when taking my toddler to places so I didn't want to have another thing to carry. I was hoping that the light weight would help me carry it around for my toddler, but it's SO light that my daughter who just turned two can carry the bike easily! It makes my life easier and less struggle for my wrist that has been hurting. My daughter is in love with red and she picked the red one. The color didn't look all that great in the picture provided, but in person I find the red color to be strong and bold! The color does not look cheap and overall the bike looks amazing! It took me several days to read every review for the balance bikes in the market right now, but I am super HAPPY that this is the one I decided on! Best decision EVER! It's so HARD to be satisfied with online purchases these days. But this one DID NOT disappoint!!!
