24 inch Childrens Bikes

Childrens Bikes

What’s the best bike for my child?

Children are able to start riding a two wheeled bike at a young age with the aid of trainer wheels and the correct sized bike. Wheel size is used to reference the bike size for children rather than frame size. There are 12”, 16”, 20” and 24” wheel sizes to suit children from 2 years to 11 years of age.

Most 12” and 16” bikes are equipped with trainer wheels as standard to enable the rider to adapt to the bike. Powerful rear hub brakes are common with most 12”-20” bikes with 16” and 20” also equipped with front hand brakes. This range of product is often referred to as a BMX bike. A balance bike, a bike without pedals and trainers, is also an option to get your child started.

20” bikes can have one gear or as many as seven. Single speed models are available for entry level riders through to high specification race and freestyle models. 20” and 24” with gears are perfect for children that can ride well and want to keep up with mum and dad on family rides.
