18" wheel kids bikes are becoming more and more popular, as they plug the gap between a small starter bike and a larger geared bike.
Some children aren't quite the right size, ability or age to move up to a bigger geared bike, and a 18" wheel bike can be a great solution (plus they usually cost a bit less than a geared bike too!)
A word of warning though - it's a wheel size that has traditionally been dominated by very cheap "toy" bikes (and click here to read why we don't recommend these).
Thankfully now there's a number of good quality 18" wheel bikes that are available to buy or lease long term.
In this article we'll take a look at the best 18" wheel kids bikes - they're all great bikes that should bring years of fun for your child.
We include options on where to buy new and also how to lease long term or buy second hand (where available) so there's hopefully something suitable for every budget.
