Children love their bikes; a bicycle offers a mix of adventure and fun and an outlet for their boundless energy. Most adults will have some childhood memory of their first bicycles and so it is an important part of our development. Unlike adult bikes which are determined by frame height, children's bike sizes are based on wheel diameter and range from 12 -24 inches. The age categories in the chart below overlap to reflect the ever changing height and strength differences in children as they grow.
Wheelsize Approximate Age Approximate Inseam
12 inches 2-5 years 35-45 cms
16 inches 4-8 years 45-55 cms
20 inches 7-10 years 55-63 cms
24 inches 9+ years 60-72 cms
