Best Kids Bikes – How to Spot Them

You may know a great deal about bikes in general, but buying a bike for a child is not the same. You know what you want and what you need and you’ve maybe had a bike as a kid, but that was long time ago probably. The kid’s bikes is not going to hit the road or go down the mountain, or maybe take on a long 50 miles ride, however, it still has to be durable. A well-crafted bike will have broken parts after a small child’s crash. If you are not careful you just might get that kind of bike.

The bike should look fun and cute, somewhat as a toy. In other words it should be entertaining both for your child and for the children around it, as it will make it more appealing and by that your little one will like it more. Extra elements such as a basket or a bell are a nice additions children like. After few days the bell might turn annoying, but hey, at least one of your loved ones is having a great time doing it.

Bear in mind the size of the bike. It’s perfectly OK to do some measuring before making a decision. If you’re willing to take the chance to make the decision without prior measuring, you’re risking the bike to be useless for some time if the bike’s too big.

The bikes with training wheels usually have the option to have the wheels removed. This way your child can use the bike for a longer time once it overcomes the balance issues. For a bit older kids a thing to note is the length of the saddle post. You want there to be some space for modifying the height as in time your kid will need extra height. The distance between the handlebars and the saddle is a whole different problem and if your kid starts having problems with that it’s time to buy a new bike, a bigger one.
