Teaching a kid how to ride a bike is tough enough without mechanical problems, flat tires, and messy chains. It’s high time someone built a smarter learning bike—and now, one company has.
As a child, learning to ride a bike vexed me to no end. While my friends zipped around the neighborhood on two wheels, I plodded along on four, thanks to an embarrassing set of "training wheels." Good news: They're doomed.
OK, biker dudes, if you want to be called a wuss and get laughed out of the bike rally, install a Retractable Wheel System from Safety Features Incorporated. Flip a switch on the handlebars, and these wheels hydraulically lower to keep that bike upright at low speeds or when it's stopped.
