    I guess bigger rear wheel drive trikes fell out of favour when stabilisers became common.

    This meant a child could learn to ride with the stabilisers then take them off, saving the cost of a new bike.

    When exactly were stabilisers invented and when did they become popular in Britain?

    In the 1990s kids used to learn to ride with stabilisers but an increasing number of kids in recent years learn to ride with balance bikes.

    They were certainly around in the early 1980s.

    Raleigh Chukka. They had one for reception class kids at my primary school. They were made around 1980.

    Oh those bikes- I bought a colored three wheeler to my aughter. I remember it yet it was like 20 years ago- orange blu and pink. Quite a figure but for a toddler was like a racing car she was thrilled!

    Front wheel drive tricycles are a strange, and prehistoric, machine if you really think about it. In more recent years they have evolved into machines resembling pushchairs.

    They only have a history in the form of photos of kids using them.
