What age child is a 24" wheel bike for?
The majority of 7 and 8 year olds will be getting ready to move onto a kids bike with 24″ wheels - although there is such a range of different sizes of 24" wheel bikes and different size children there's no one bike that will fit every child.
There are bikes on this page that have a minimum inside leg of 57cm and other bikes that go up to a maximum inside leg of 75cm - and loads inbetween!
Do make sure that you measure very carefully, or even better, test out a bike before you buy.
Please don’t be tempted to buy big so your child can grow into it. They will struggle to control the bike, feel unsafe and not want to ride it. A total waste of money!
You’re much better buying a bike that fits them and then selling it on to fund the purchase of the next, correctly sized bike, as they get older.

How much should I spend on a 24" wheel bike for my child?
If you're wondering how much to spend on a bike for your child, remember that a bike at this age is something that is going to keep them fit, active and can provide a cheap and environmentally friendly way of getting around.
The bike you buy them now will help give them independence as they grow, plus you're giving them a tool to support their mental and physical health.
Think how much you pay for their phone or games console, or other big ticket items, and remember that you want to buy a bike that's reliable and safe to ride (which is all the bikes listed in this article - and why we don't suggest buying a really cheap new bike).
We've recommended second hand classics and Bike Club subscriptions which are both great ways of keeping costs lower.
