    Just saw your reply...I agree with your husband, the idea of the balance bike is no training wheels. It can take them a bit to master pedalling but it's still a much easier process than removing training wheels. Put the seat down low and encourage him to get some speed up on the bike with his feet and then get him to pick his feet up and pedal once he has the momentum going. Or help him to get the momentum going and then get him to do it on his own. I think it took my middle child about 3-4 goes before grasping the concept of pedalling where as my youngest grasped the concept immediately.
