Bikes “R” not Toys!
The day a toddler takes home his or her first new bike is HUGE!
We admit we love being a part of this epic event. Your child’s bike
must be the perfect fit & color, and of course it must be
properly accessorized! Trek and Specialized really understand how to
build bikes for kids. You know your child, and we know the fit.
Together, we’ll make sure you make the right long term investment.
Where are the cranks and pedals?
The Trek Kickster and Specialized Hotwalk offer parents a new, old
way to teach kids how to ride. The trend is recent in the U.S. –
teach balance before pedaling, and your child might never need
training wheels. Get them on one of these cute little bikes with a
10” or 12” wheel by the time they’re 2 years old.
Bikes with 16-inch wheels are a great size for most kids ages 3 –
5 years. Of course, Trek & Specialized build the little bike with
easy stand-over & just the right seat-to-handlebar dimension for
little arms and hands. Many children will learn how to ride a
two-wheeler with this bike. But don’t lose the training wheels –
you’ll need them when it’s time to trade this bike in towards the
next bigger size!
The 20” wheel bike, for tall 4 year olds up through about age 6,
makes the perfect transition bike! It has the coaster brake your
child has already mastered, and also a hand brake to learn at his /
her own pace.
For kids ready to take a leap & parents who want them to keep
up on those longer family rides, here’s the solution! With both
hand brakes and 6 gears, the Hotrock and Mt Track 60 are miniature
versions of your first mountain bike! With an easy action grip
shift, little hands can learn why shifting is cool. Let’s take one
outside for a test! Your kid’s enthusiasm is boundless – give
them the bike that’ll take them as far as they want to go.
The 24” wheel mountain bike is sized for 7 to 10-year olds.
While all come with front and rear hand brakes, you have a choice of
either a 7 speed, or a 21 speed drivetrain. Trek & Specialized
have some fantastic new colors for this year.
