Supposedly once you learn to ride a bike you never forget. The problem is the “learning” part that can be difficult and even traumatic for some kids. Training wheels have long been the method utilized to get kids to learn to ride, but now the Gyrobike could change that.
This 3-in-1 bike was developed by Robert Bodill and it works by starting with no pedal or chain, which allows the child to get comfortable just sitting and coasting on the bike. From here a Gyrowheel is added, and this features a battery-powered spinning disk that creates a process know gyroscopic precession that helps keep the bike and rider upright. More importantly this requires no training wheels. The Gryowheel can be reduced in how much it aids in keeping the rider upright.
Finally, a standard wheel can be added and the little tyke has learned to ride a bike with training wheels never touching the ground or the bike.
