The first bicycle of your child will have a lasting impact on your kids life. Therefore we recommend to see your local bike shop for a fitting.
Kids Bikes are considered all bikes with wheel sizes of 10", 12", 16", 18", 20" and 24". A regular adult bicycle has wheel sizes 26" and up but there are certain bikes with 26" wheels whose frames run so small (usually XS) that they could pass to be in the category "kids bikes".
Kids bikes come in various styles, colors and shapes, depending on the age and skill of the child. Most common are the single speed kids bikes with or without training wheels, but there are also kids road and mountain bikes with gears and other components that are usually only seen on adult bicycles.
