Peaty Teams Up with Zum Zum

Date Dec 15, 2014

In association with Steve Peat, Zum Zum Bikes are proud to announce the development of their new wooden balance bike for kids as young as 18 months, with a patented frame design and built in ‘natural’ suspension.

Built from Northern European Birch, meaning that it is, strong, flexible and eco-friendly.
This patented frame design, along with the natural suspension system guarantees that incase of uneven surfaces or off-road use, the shock is absorbed and allows for a smooth ride. This system offers 10-50mm of natural suspension travel, depending on your child’s weight, meaning that the bike can be used on various terrain with confidence.

“It’s a big day today!! I’m really proud to announce that i’m helping with ZumZumBikes create the Worlds Coolest Kids Balance Bike! We’re looking to you guys to help make this a reality by pledging your help over on our Kickstarter page, which is linked below!”

As of today, Sunday 14th December, the Zum Zum Kickstarter campaign is in full swing and in need of your support.

For those who are yet to come across Kickstarter, it’s basically a new way to fund creative projects online. Project creators set a funding goal and deadline. If people like a project, they can pledge money to make it happen.

Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing — projects must reach their funding goals to receive any money. All-or-nothing funding might seem scary, but it’s amazingly effective in creating momentum and rallying people around an idea.

Great idea these push bikes.
Or save $$$ take the pedals off and pad the arms with some foam.
My son learned to balance in a day or two.
And we still have a pedal bike for the sequel !

uncertain about who got there first. I still think balance bikes? What happened to kids just learning on normal bikes like we all did?

Don't know about you, but I learned on training wheels, long before there were balance bikes. At 2 it was just tiny tricycles, which don't teach balance at all. I've seen and heard of many kids being able to transition from a balance bike to a pedal bike (w/o training wheels) in a single day.

It is quite likely that these balance bikes make the transition easier. I remember my dad just holding the bike from behind, once he reckoned I had some sort of balance, he let go (without telling me) and I was off. Took a day or two. We did the same with our kids. But I digress. TBH I just think there is more than one way to skin a cat. Not my idea of money well spent.

Balance bike eliminate the need for training wheels. I have 3 cousins all around the age of 5 and they all started on these when they were younger. Once they got a Big Kid bike they just jumped on and away they went.
