Best bikes

Your child’s new bike for 6-year-olds is just a click away from being in your home! We have a wide range of lightweight bikes available in a variety of wheel sizes and frame sizes, so you're bound to find your perfect bike no matter your child's age range. Delve into the great road bikes we have below and find your child's new bike! The perfect size bike for a 6 year old would usually be a 16" wheel bike or a 20" wheel bike

If your child is small for their age, you can always size down to a 12-inch-wheel bike, this will ensure stability as they ride, keeping their feet flat on the ground when needed. If your child is tall for their age, you can also size up to a larger bike, keeping them comfortable as they take on road riding!
