Don’t laugh, there is some real potential for adult training wheels. Stabilizer Wheels, who produce an adult training wheel kit which attaches a pair of 16″ wheels alongside the rear wheel of any standard mountain or road bike, says their training wheels for adults can help get more people on bikes including stroke patients, those with mental or physical handicaps, the elderly, or anyone who is just plain afraid of falling over.
The training wheels attach directly to the rear triangle of the frame, giving the rider a nice, stable ride, almost impossible to tip over. Stabilizer Wheels will fit on most any standard mountain, road, or hybrid bike with wheels from 24″-27″ and are removable just like any other training wheel, but these can hold up to 500 lbs.
The kit can be ordered directly from Stabilizer on their website here for $199.
