The illustrations for this section are among my favorites, because I love the concept that bicycles make it possible to pedal the earth. But the artist who did such a fine job fitting globes on the bike in the top ad also made an interesting mistake. . . . (more)
Look closely and you’ll see that the crankset is on the left side of the bike and that it’s encircling the chainstay, which locks it, preventing it from rotating. A crank that won’t turn is useless. But it’s probably too much to expect this mythical bike to be fully functional.
Referring to more modern machines, my former boss, Bruce Anderson, the owner of Andy’s Cycle Shop in Keene, New Hampshire calls the crank “the heart of a bicycle.” I like that. The frame is essential; the wheels are crucial and the crank is what gets the rider involved pumping the thing and getting it going. And cranking a bike gets the rider going, too: heart, blood, lungs, mind.
But this section isn’t called “Crank” due to the illustrations. And I didn’t use the word “crank” because they’re so important.
I named this page “Crank” because to crank means to push the pace.

“Today, anyone who’s serious about teaching a kid to ride at an early age will likely eschew training wheels in favor of a balance bike. “

We know that learning to ride isn’t JUST about the end goal of pedaling, but about everything children gain in the process. At Strider, we want to remind you that the joy is in the getting there, not necessarily the arrival. Strider Bikes helps children proudly become who they are.
There’s a lot to love about owning a Strider. One of the coolest things is becoming part of a community of Strider riders that spans the globe. Woah! Cool. Strider events give children a place to make new friends, have a little friendly competition, and hone their sweet riding skills. The best part for parents? Cheering your speed demon on, watching them grow, and making memories that will last a lifetime.
