Assembling a Bobbin junior bike is really easy and fun. Please click here to view our step by step guide to assembling the bike. 

  • The bike arrives in a box. The handlebars, front wheel, front mudguard, pedals and saddle must be attached.
  • The basket is attached simply by the straps. Only the Gingersnap 24" comes with a basket support.
  • The box contains basic tools. You will also need scissors, pliers, a screwdriver and a pump.

Some things to note:

  • The basket is not machine made, it is hand woven from natural materials. Inconsistencies in weave, finish and colour are to be expected and are part of its charm.

If two sizes fit, go for the bigger. It will fit for longer whilst your child grows.

The Hornet features wide multi-surface tyres, cool-grey BMX-style pedals, and precise 7-speed gearing to get your rider up and down hills! It's also equipped with high-performance, Promax V-brakes, making it much more powerful than traditional calliper brakes, ensuring confident control wherever they go!

You've asked, we've answered

It’s okay to have questions, and we want to ensure you are all set for shopping with Bobbin. Take a look at our FAQs for the answers you’ve been looking for.

The 12" and 16" Moonbug and Gingersnap models include colour-matched stabilisers (training wheels). We do not provide training wheels for 20 and 24" wheel bikes, but it is possible to buy these separately from other retailers.

Always measure your child's inside leg and check our sizing guide before choosing the size. The age guides we give are only for general guidance, the height and inside leg are more important. If you're not sure about the sizing, contact us and we can advise. It's important to buy a bike that your child can fit on. Our Junior bikes have plenty of room for growth, as saddles and handlebars can be adjusted easily.

Your bike will be delivered to you partially assembled in a box. Assembly is really easy, and you can follow our instructions here. Assembly is normally done within 30 minutes and basic tools are included with your bike. You will need scissors and a bike pump.

It is unlikely that your child will be completely between wheel sizes, as there is some overlap between the sizes. For example, the Gingersnap 12" is for 33-43cm inside legs, and the Gingersnap 16" is for 40-54cm inside legs. Our Junior bikes have plenty of room for adjustment, with saddles and handlebars that can be adjusted easily. If in doubt, you can contact us for advice.

Safety, first!

Why not complete the look with one of our trendy matching helmets? Here at Bobbin, safety is in style - they’re breathable, comfortable, and a real head-turner.
