Feeling very conflicted, I need some help. I'm going to buy my little girl a Strider bike. I want to get her the Fly Racing model from BTO Sports for $129+tax, OR I could get one from Target for $92.72 since they sell them for $109 and have a $25 discount on all toy purchases over $100, but the Target model doesn't have the Fly logo or number plate. I know Pulp says to put Pulp in the comments of the order to receive a discount, but I won't know the discount until I purchase. I'd really like to support BTO/Pulp, but it's also about a $40 difference for basically the same thing, just one has a Fly sticker and a number plate. What to do?

A lot of my past purchases were based on the “labeling” such as the Fly model you mentioned. Now I’m old and a little wiser. If the quality is the same I’d go with the Target strider and put whatever stickers you choose to give it the “moto” look

Yup, I just channeled my inner Weege.

I'd buy from bto, the fly logos will look more official at the strider races. Unless you're hurting for money, and you could use that $40 to take your daughter to the aquarium.

I asked that question a lot when I was single.

Do I save money or do I support the Strippers Industry?

Supporting the Strippers industry is saving money laughing

This is a tough one. I’d buy fhe one from BTO but I don’t know if this is the correct answer. I do know I don’t think companies like Target and Walmart don’t appreciate my business whereas BTO likely does.

Target supports Ryan Dungey.

See how I fixed your problem.

Just looked, seems like the licensed bikes have been discontinued? What a bummer. My son has the Yamaha. I think licensed bikes were $20 more. I’m sure you can find one somewhere. Photo

Go to your local moto dealer and order one. That’s where we got my sons from, and I got my standard awesome discount they give on everything else. I got the bike for less than either price above, supported my dealer, and got my boy a strider all in one. Maybe give that try before ordering or swinging by the target store.

We bought our daughter a Specialized strider. Thing is built like a tank and still is in great shape after 3 years of riding.

With that being said, she outgrew the thing so quickly that if we did it over again I probably just would have went with something cheaper.

On a positive note, she went directly from the strider to the next size up pedal bike with no training wheels. Was riding on her own with only a few hours of practice in the grass. Did exactly what I had hoped. She struggled more with the motion of pedaling (keeping her feet on the pedals) but balancing, turning, and stopping was never an issue.

I paid $40 on eBay for a new open box one that was missing one little bolt on the steering stem. Much better than $200 from the local KTM / Husky dealer. I support the industry when it makes sense to do so. I feel bad for people who need to profit off things, but I'm not going to spend money foolishly for one with a certain sticker on it for a child who can't even read the over priced sticker.
