LIKEaBIKE, new to the U.S. market, looks like a bicycle but has no pedals. All three models are designed for young children to get the hang of bike riding.The LIKEaBIKE Spoky, with its spoked wheels, is very popular with children, because it has the "real bike" look; adults tend to favor the LIKEaBIKE Mountain which has wooden wheels. The company´s top of the line model, the LIKEaBIKE Forest, is made out of beech wood (Spoky and Mountain are made out of birch wood) and has wooden wheels. All versions weigh only eight pounds and help children to gain a sense of balance, improvement of motor skills, joy of riding a two-wheeler at a very young age and the advantage of graduating to a "real bike" without the use of training wheels.
