I don't know this to be a fact. I was told My uncle Kenneth Grillot invented the training wheel. He worked for Huffy Bikes. His idea was adopted by Huffy and my uncle didn't get any credit for it.,
Actually, my dad, Fred Abel, invented training wheels, for Huffy Bikes in Dayton, Ohio. The patent is in his name. Dad was Vice President -- Chief Engineer for The Huffman Manufacturing Copany.
I would say around 1950.
================================================================================ Actually Theodore Sampson created Training Wheels for a Girl that had Polio - With Aluminum Braces she could not ride her Bicycle. Mr Sampson created Structs with Wheels to attach to her Bicycle. This happen about 1950..
Mr Theodore Sampson was in charge of the Automotive Shop at Central State University Wilberforce Ohio 15-20 Miles from Dayton Ohio - It was known that a man visiting Central State University saw the Girl and her Bicycle with the Structs with Wheels - Made a rough Stretch and obviously took it to Huffman Manufacturing Manufacturer of Huffy Bicycles. Mr Sampson never received credit for Training Wheels..
I first heard this story when my father went to brorrow a wrench from Mr Sampson to remove my Training Wheels probably around 1957 +/- 1 Year - All the men at the Shop Echoed this Story - As a Kid I would hang-out at Mr Sampson's Shop - He Taught me how to put my Chain back on the Spocket - How to Patch my Inter-Tube, etc -- Tom.J.Craft@GMail.com
It took decades after the invention of the bicycle for training Wheels to be invented. None of the first bikes had training Wheels. The guy usually considered the inventor of the bicycle is Karl von Drais.
Wheels had been around for quite some time, but they didn't become bicycle wheels until someone invented the bicycle.
THe same guy who invented the bike.
Training wheels are small wheels on outriggers, that are bolted onto a kids bicycle to keep it upright even if the rider is unable to balance the bike.
I'm guessing you're referring to the "training" wheels.

The "bi" in bicycle means "two", so to be a true bicycle it has to have two wheels.
bicycle is a vehicle usually with two wheels and a car is a vehicle with four wheels......Additional answerAlways with two wheels. The definition of bicycle is a two-wheeled vehicle. If it has more or less than 2 wheels then it's not a bicycle.A car is motorized and a bicycle is not. A bicycle saves energy. Of course, a 'motor' or 'electric' bicycle can be powered. Fundamentally a 'bicycle' has two wheels and a car has more (usually four).
No. The "bi" in "bicycle" is another word for "two". If it hasn't got two wheels, it can't be a bicycle.
'Motorbike' is short for motor bicycle, and a bicycle is a vehicle with two wheels.
