How to choose a children's bike?

The first step is knowing how to choose the size of the bike. If it is a very large bicycle, the child may not be able to brake quickly and support his feet on the ground. If it's a bike that's too small, it can bring pain in the knees and discourage the child.
Between 85 cm and 1 m: bikes shorter than 10''
(tricycles and bicycles without pedals).
• Between 90 cm and 1.05 m: 12'' and 14'' bikes
Between 1.05 m and 1.20 m: 16'' bikes
Between 1.20 m and 1.35 m: 20'' bikes
Between 1.35 m and 1.55 m: 24'' bikes

Other important details:

- Check if the bike is suitable for the child. The bike must respect the needs of each child.
- Choose a light bike.
- The saddle should be comfortable.
- The chain must be of quality.
- The levers must be comfortable for the child to use them safely.
- The distance between the handle and the handle must be proportional to the size of the child's hand.
