Does anyone know where I can find a convertible balance bike that doesn't cost £££? All I can find is a BMW one for £245 shock

hmm i had a friend who had one, she got it in germany so i think you need to look for european ones, i think isla bike might do one? and i have seen one once ina garden centre shop but it was heavy and looked unwieldly..
if all fails get a little bike and take the pedals AND the crank shaft bit off? and then you could put it back on again later.

i shall have a google smile
