Turning a pedal bike into a balance bike

This is easy to do – all you have to do is take the pedals off!

You need an adjustable spanner or one of the right size (15mm) with a long handle.

Remember a simple rule – “back off”. To take the pedals off, turn the spanner backwards. To do them up again, it’s forwards – super easy.

Don’t do them up too tightly again but make sure they are nice and firm.

If you don’t have the tools, most bike shops will do this for you for a small fee or free.
