Wishbone 3-in-1 Kids bike (5)

The Wishbone 3-in-1 Trike/Bike is designed to grow with your child. Included in the box is three wheels and two different axles, which allow it to be setup as either a trike or a bike.

These all black frames are made from recycled residential carpet. The materials are collected in the United States, then the nylon is extracted and glass fiber is added for strength. It is then turned into resin pellets and glass injected in a mold. The frame are hollow for light weight, strong, and can be left out in the rain without worrying about rusting.

As the child grows the frame can be flipped over (which required removing and re-installing the fork and saddle), which raises the top tube.

All of the adjustments are simple and can be performed in under five minutes by someone with no mechanical experience. The only tool required is an allen, which is included in the package. Wishbone 3 in 1 balance bike

When your child is comfortable, the trike can be transitioned into a balance bike by swapping in a different rear axle. If you prefer to skip the Trike phase, Wishbone sells a 2-in-1 balance bike version separately that retains the ability to flip the front triangle for improved fit.

Retail for the 3-in-1 is $229, while the 2-in-1 model costs $199. The company also sells a wooden version of the bike, which retails for the same amount.

Also in development is a pedal version, which will greatly extend the usability of the bike.

While murdered black is all the rage in certain scenes, some kids prefer a little color. To add a little fun, parents can order colored seats and grips.

  1. As the father of a 9 month old son I can say I would totally buy this once the pedal version is released (provided the drive train can be added on later). This looks like a perfect first bike, can’t wait for my little dude to pass me on the trails in a few years!

  2. Rickybob – the pedal version is out, but your 9-month old is quite a ways out from using it. My 2 year old is still rocking the bike in tricycle mode and just about to transfer to 2-wheel balance bike. the pedals are for much later 4-6 years old. So no rush, get a bike now (the pedals are an accessory anyway) adjust to the lowest position and get your little one on and cruising. Just be careful what you wish for. We have a hard time getting him to stop. If you want to order one free free to contact me and I will happily ship anywhere in the US.

  3. Hi, I’m very interested in this bike for my grandaughter’s first birthday May 16th. How do I get one? Linda
