FAQs Adult bikes

Which Bobbin bike size will fit me?

Some of our adults bikes come in two sizes.

To find your size, see our sizing chart here.

Can I fit a child seat to a Bobbin bike? Can I use my existing bike rack with a child bike seat?

Yes you can. We have many Bobbin riders using child seats. You can either fit a rear carrier-mounting seat or a frame-mounting seat. Carrier-mounting seats are generally easier to fit; please be aware you will need a rear carrier with a weight limit of 25kg for this (the Bobbin alloy rear carrier , for example).

**Frame-mounting seats are not recommended for the S/M frame sizes**

Can I fit a basket to a Bobbin bike?


Can I try the bike before I buy it?

Our entire range is available exclusively from our web store. We don't have a physical store or outlets in the UK. We can answer any sizing or product queries you might have.
