How to choose the best bike for children?


The bicycle is surely one of the most popular toys of all. Considering that the bicycle was invented in 1817, it is no wonder that it is such a popular vehicle with us. For 200 years this vehicle has been part of our lives and also that of all children. In fact, the first contact with this two-wheeled vehicle occurs from the first years of life of all children. For this reason and because of the importance it has, today we tell you how to choose the best bicycle for children.

There are many ways to choose the best or most suitable bicycle for our son or daughter. The first and most important is the size of the bike that will be related to the age of our little one. You have to know that the sizes of bicycles are measured in inches, which are in relation to the "mm" of the rims. For example, a 26-inch bike has a 559mm rim.

In order not to get confused and make mistakes with the measurements of the bicycles, we show you the different sizes of bicycles for each age of the children.

Bicycle sizes for children according to age

1. Bicycles for babies (1 or 2 years)

Babies of this age are usually about 90 cm tall. For this height, the ideal bike size will be 12 inches (12 ″). This is the correct size for all boys and girls <90 cm.

2. Bicycles for children from 3 to 4 years’ old

Children between 3 and 4 years old have already grown a bit and are usually between 90 cm and 1.05 m. These measurements mean that the size of bicycle for children that we will have to order will be 14 inches.

3. Bicycles for children from 4 to 5 years’ old

Bicycles for children from 4 to 5 years old already vary their size a little so they will be a little larger. At this age the boy or girl is usually between 1.05 m and 1.20 m. For this height the ideal bicycle will be the 16 inches.

4. Bicycles for children from 6 to 7 years’ old

Children from 6 to 7 years old already have a greater command of the bicycle so they have to change it for one of their size. At these ages the height moves between 1.20 m and 1.35 m. The bicycle that we will choose in this case will be the 20-inch one.

5. Bicycles for children 8 years and older

From 8 years onwards the sizes of the bicycles no longer vary so much. We will have to take into account that if the boy or girl measures between 1.35 m and 1.55 m, the ideal bicycle for him or her will be the 24-inch one.

All these measures that we have discussed above may vary to a greater or lesser extent depending on the constitution of our son or daughter, but they are the standard measures that will surely serve you when choosing the most appropriate and best bicycle for your children.

Now we have talked to you about bicycle sizes, which is the most important issue when choosing a bike. But in addition to this there are also other factors that will make us hit or miss with the chosen bicycle. For example, knowing which is our son's favorite character. Children often love to have the bicycle with the image of their favorite cartoon character.

Another factor can be color. We have infinite colors to choose the best bike. Oddly enough, many children want their bike to have a certain color to be comfortable on it.

Another factor is determined by the different accessories that a bicycle can have, such as a front or rear basket to put objects, for mud, lights, horn, pedals or if it has gears or not. We have to take into account what terrain our son will move when deciding whether to buy him a bicycle with gears or without them.

At Stead Cycles Bike shop, you can find all the children's bicycles that you need for your children. You can choose the appropriate size and also the bike of your favorite character if you wish.
