Buying a kids bike

Here at Cycle Sprog we’re here to help you find the perfect bike for your child. We don’t sell bikes ourselves – we’re here to help you decide which bikes you should be considering for your child and your budget, and where to buy your final choice from.

We only feature quality kids bikes that will last several children, which we’ve either ridden ourselves or which have been recommended to us by other keen cycling parents.

We’ll also help you through the process of deciding whether to buy a bike (either new or second-hand) or lease one.

Take a moment to GRAB YOUR FREE KIDS BIKE BUYING CHECKLIST which will help you record all the information you need to find the perfect bike for your child. 

 

What type of bike are you looking for?

If you already know what type of bike you’re looking for, you can go straight to our recommendations for each type of bike:

The best kids bikes for all ages

Kids bikes are sold according to their wheel size (in inches).  Small starter bikes (12″ to 18″ tend to come without gears) and 20″ wheels and over you can add in gears to make getting up hills easier.

If you’re not sure what type of geared bike you’re looking for, then we always recommend a good quality hybrid bike.

We’ve selected the best kids bikes in each size to help you find that perfect bike.  We’ve included new, secondhand and lease options so all budgets are covered.
