1. A user may be pushed by a parent or guardian to begin. The lean to turn technology is integrated into the push bar in the rear so the pusher may also control the steering in this way. The user will begin to feel their balance shift as the pusher controls where they go. The back axle also has grips for the pusher to hop on board and ride with the user.

2. In the second stage the user continues to be pushed by a parent or guardian. The difference this time is that the lean to turn steering will be controlled solely by the user. This will begin to increase the user's balance skills.

3. The third and final stage requires the user to kick to push in addition to leaning to turn. This furthers the users balance skills and creates a sense of accomplishment and independence. Following this stage the user may be ready to attempt a bicycle with training wheels in order to hammer out typical bike steering with pedals, and then the ultimate goal, of course, would be a bicycle.
