KIDS BIKES: START THEM YOUNG

1.5-3 years -- RUN BIKES

A great introduction to two-wheeled fun, run bikes are the perfect alternative to training wheels and the best way for wee ones to learn the basics of balance, turning and stopping. Available with 10" and 12" tires kids can start riding early and often.

3-4 years -- 12 INCH

A 12" bike is the perfect first bike or progression from a run bike for kids age 3 to 4 years old.  A lightweight aluminum frame has lower standover to fit smaller riders, so young kids can begin to experience the fun and adventure only found on two wheels.

3-4 years -- 14 INCH

Equipped with a familiar coaster brake and rear hand brake, or front and rear hand brakes, young riders can confidently get rolling and dependably stop. 14" bikes are perfect for getting your 3 to 4-year-old youngster riding trails and having fun.

4-5 years -- 16 INCH

Similar to the 14", the 16" wheel bike is  equipped with a familiar coaster brake and rear hand brake, or front and rear hand brakes so young riders can confidently get rolling and dependably stop.  These bikes feature a rugged, lightweight aluminum frame and quality components.

5-10 years -- 20 INCH

20" all-purpose or mountain bikes are perfect for getting your 5 to 8-year-old youngster riding trails and having fun. With front and rear hand brakes, young riders can confidently get rolling and dependably stop.

9-12 years -- 24 INCH

24" wheel size bikes come in almost the same shapes as adult bikes: rigid, hardtail or full suspension, rim or disc brakes.  All of them are built to outlast multiple children and spend more time on the trail and less in the shop. 

FIND THE RIGHT SIZE

Not only are measurements like your child's inseam and the bike's standover height important factors, the rider's skills and confidence should also be taken into consideration when figuring out the math.
