Kids’ Bike Guide

Kids Grow Fast. We’re Here to Help.

Thanks to our Kids’ Bike Trade-Up Program, your child can ride a high quality bike that fits well despite those unexpected growth spurts. When your little cyclist is ready for the next bike size, we’ll give you up to 50% of your original bike purchase as a credit towards a bigger kids’ bike.

Why Choose Our Bike Shop?

The kids' bikes we carry are designed with the same level of detail that goes into our adult bikes. They feature lightweight frames and durable components, making them fun and safe for your child. We also have a sweet selection of sizes and colors - all fine-tuned by professional mechanics and ready for you.

How Does Trading Up Work?

Our Kids’ Bike Trade-Up Program is simple - invest in a quality bike today, and bring it back to us when your child is ready for the next size. We’ll inspect the bike and give you up to 50% of the original price to spend on a new kids’ bike. This program is valid until your child is ready for an adult bike!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you teach kids how to ride bikes at the shop?
  • Although we don't have a formal program at the shops to teach kids how to ride two wheel bicycles we love nothing more than helping get kids rolling along. The key to a child successfully riding a two wheeler without training wheels is them wanting to do it. Nothing inspires them to ride a big kids bike more than seeing everybody cruising around at the bike shops. If you don't know where to start, bring them to any of our shops and we'll help you get them started!
How do we know what size kids bike to buy?
  • Generally the size chart above answers most questions regarding youth bike sizes. Another thing to keep in mind is your child's confidence level. The more confident the child the bigger the bike they can handle. If your child is just starting out a bike on the smaller end of their size range inspires confidence and gets them riding more.
Hand Brakes or Coaster Brakes?
  • Coaster brakes are really just meant for kids starting out. As soon as your child is cruising along and has some grip strength they should transition over to a bike with hand brakes.
Single Speed or Gears
  • It's always best to start out a child on a bike with just a single speed gear setup. This is best because it allows your child to focus on riding and balancing on the bike without having to focus on shifting gears. After your child is fully confident riding around on a bike without training wheels it's time to upgrade to a bike with gears.
Should we use training wheels to teach our child how to ride?
  • Training wheels are always an effective way to get your child confidently riding along on their own bicycle. That said, training wheels generally don't teach great riding habits as the child doesn't learn how to properly lean into a corner. As balance bikes become more and more popular it is now possible to transition your child from a balance bike directly into a bike without training wheels if they are confident and want to learn how to ride a two wheeler right away.
