An Overview On Bicycles

Learning to ride a “big kid” bike is one of the great rites of passage during childhood. Bikes bring a newfound sense of freedom for kids, helping them cover more distance in less time.

When selecting a kids’ bike, one of the most important things to get right is the size. Kids grow fast, and it can be tempting to buy a larger bike than they need because you expect them to grow into it. However, it’s important to remember that larger bikes can also be heavy, which can make it difficult for your child to maneuver the bike, and can make it more dangerous for them to navigate.

Most bikes come with age and height recommendations which are good starting points when selecting the right bike size. You’ll also want to make sure that your child can stand over the bike and have both of their feet flat on the ground on either side. They should be able to sit comfortably in the seat and reach the pedals. Their arms should be relaxed as they rest their hands on the handlebars. If your child cannot stand over the bike or has to stretch their arms to hold the handlebars, it’s likely the bike is too big for them.

The Bicycle Buying Guide

  • The most important measurement on a kids’ bike is the wheel size. The size of the wheel does not affect the frame size or the seat height. Check to see how adjustable the seat is on the kids’ bike. When standing over the bike, there should be at least an inch or two between your child and the seat for safety purposes.
  • Take a look at the material the bike is made from, as that will affect the weight and longevity of the bike. Steel is a durable option that can withstand daily rough use. However, it can be heavier than the alternative, which is aluminum. Aluminum is a light material, though it can be more costly than steel. It is rust-proof, unlike steel which can rust if it is frequently used (or left outside) in wet weather.
  • Most kids’ bikes will have either a hand brake or a coaster brake. Coaster brakes work when the rider pedals backward. This is an easy way for kids to understand how to use brakes. Many younger children also don’t have the hand dexterity or strength to use hand brakes. Hand brakes are a better option for kids over 5 years of age.
