Sorted: 10" Balance Bike Wheelset

Postby Velocipedestrian on Mon 16/Jan/17 9:57pm

The Velocipetit is excited about bikes, which I am excited about.
But the balance bike we have is slightly too big (after drilling some extra seat-lowering holes).

I'm not sure if these exist, but the buggy has 10x1.25" tyres, so they might.

Anyone?

I have a set of plastic balance bike wheels with inflatable tyres, I was keeping them to build a buggy for the kids, welcome to try them if your in Auckland, although cant really be arsed to post them anywhere.

That's the kind of thing I'm looking for... But I'm in welly.

If the urge to rid yourself of them outweighs the urge to make a buggy give me a yell.

Mocka do a model called the mini urban, pretty sure it has 10" wheels (its definitely got smaller wheels than all of their other bikes.)

Have a look at the second photo - shows it standing next to their normal sized bike.


They sell spare wheels at $10 each.

No worries, we were really close to buying one of those for our little guy when he was about 18 months old but held off and got him a full sized urban for his second birthday (on the basis that he would've outgrown the mini much sooner).

I didn't actually know they sold spare wheels until I looked them up yesterday to find a photo of the mini for you!
