WHAT IS THE RIGHT SIZE?
Bikes are sized by the leg length rather than by age, as this is the most reliable way of getting the right size bike for each child. Age alone isn't a reliable measure as there is a large spread of 'normal' leg length and children's heights for each age.
Please take time to measure the rider's inside leg.
It's easy to measure if you follow these steps:
- stand the child in socks against a wall
- place a small book between their legs, as high as is comfortable
- ask the child to move away and measure from the top of the book to the floor (in cm!)
Once you have measured the inside leg, use this table to find the right size of bike for your child. Please note that we give the MINIMUM inside leg length for each bike, with the saddle at its lowest setting.
At this height, the child will safely and comfortably be able to get their feet on the ground. Don't worry - the saddle can be raised a long way as the rider grows!
