How to Install Training Wheels on Your Bike

Learning how to ride a bike is a right of passage for many kids. But before they can enjoy the wind in their hair, they often need a little bit of help in the form of training wheels.

Here’s a quick and easy guide on how to install training wheels on your child’s bike.

  1. Start by adjusting the width of the training wheels. They should be about 1 inch wider than the outside of the bike’s tires.
  2. Next, you’ll need to attach the brackets that will hold the training wheels in place. There are usually two brackets per wheel, one on each side of the tire. Most brackets have a hole that lines up with a hole in the frame of the bike, making it easy to attach them with a bolt.
  3. Once the brackets are in place, you can put them on the actual training wheels. Make sure that they’re inflated properly and sit at a slight angle so that they’re parallel to the ground when the bike is standing upright.
  4. To finish up, double-check that everything is tightened properly and that there’s no excess slack anywhere. Once you’re satisfied, let your child give it a try!


With training wheels in place, your child will be able to enjoy riding their bike without fear of tipping over.

And once they’ve mastered riding without training wheels, you can simply remove them and let them continue enjoying all the fun and freedom that comes with biking!
