Description E-ZBar, a device for training a child of 40-65 pounds (18-30 kg) to ride a bicycle

For an adult coach to hold onto the seat (or another part) of a small child's moving bike or hold onto the child's torso requires leaning down while walking fast (or while running)– a combination that is either sorely uncomfortable or dangerous for the coach's lower back. The E-ZBar handles enable the coach to do two things while running without needing to lean down: push the bike enough to keep it moving at speeds that are at least the minimum speed needed for the bike not to fall (if the rider can't pedal hard enough for that while also working on balancing) and keep the bike from leaning too far for the rider to reverse, i.e., keep it from falling as a result of the rider's body's lean.

The E-ZBar has three features that simpler training handles lack:
• Instead of a single handle, it has two (one for each hand), and they are spaced far enough apart for the coach's comfortable control.
• The hitch (which is attached to the bike's seatpost) includes a part (that is aligned with the coach's handles) that swivels 40 degrees (20 degrees to the left and 20 degrees to the right) in relation to the part of the hitch that is attached to the bike. The swiveling allows or forces the rider to steer (whether by turning the bike's handlebars or by leaning to a side) more independently of the coach than is the case with a non-swiveling training handle. A non-swiveling training handle causes the coach to jerk the bicycle to the left and right, which is uncomfortable for the rider and prevents the rider from taking enough control of the balancing for it to be educational.

• In order to let the rider go solo when ready, the coach can quickly and quietly release the hitch (from the piece that connects the hitch to the E-ZBar's pipe) while the rider is moving. A squeeze-grip lever (which is near one of the coach's hands) manages the quick release via a cable. How the quick release works can be seen in the picture in the lower right corner of the photo of the product's box. Of the two pieces in that picture, the piece on the right is the hitch. More specifically: the piece on the right is the swiveling part of the hitch, and the rest of the hitch, which isn't included in the picture, would be seen extending to the right if the picture showed it.
