Kids' bike sizes: bike shop near Chino Hills

Our bike shop near Chino Hills in Ontario has been sharing some of our secrets to great bike fit on our blog. Every style of bike has different fit guidelines. We started with mountain bikes, and today we are going to share how to adjust fit on a kid's bicycle.

Kids’ bikes are sized according to wheel size. You can look for a size according to general age guidelines, but it is their size, not age, that should determine your final selection. Wheel sizes are:
  • 14"-  4 to 6 years 
  • 16"- 5 to 8 years 
  • 18-20"- 7- to 10-years
  • 24"- 10 and up

After you find the correct sized bike for your child, you will need to adjust the standover height and seat position to their proportions. Our next post will describe how to do this. 
Come into our shop in Ontario for help selecting a quality bike that can safely stand up to your kids' tough riding and give them a little room for growth.
