When you’re looking for kids bikes in the Mt. Kisco area visit our local bike shop. We have top brand kids bikes for sale at our bike store.
Kids bikes can help give your child freedom, fun, and a step toward independence. Choosing the right size bike is critical. Unlike adult bikes where sizing is based on frame size, a kids bike is fitted by wheel size. The most common wheel sizes are 12″, 16″, 20″ and 24″. Your child should be able to stand over the top tube of the bike with both feet planted on the ground. If you’re concerned about getting the right fit, we’re here to help. Our bike staff will make sure it’s a perfect fit.
Another consideration when buying a kids bike is the style of children’s bike you’d like:
Balance bikes have no pedals or bike chain; it’s just the frame and wheels. A balance bike is a good way to introduce your child to a bike before moving to pedaling.
Training wheel bikes add some stability and help boost your child’s confidence. When your tike is ready to roll on their own, you can simply remove the training wheels. Training wheel bikes come in 12″ and 16″ versions and fit children 2-6 years old.
A trailer bike attaches to your seat post or on a rear rack so it can pivot for turning. This kids bike version is generally good for 4- to 7-year-olds.
Mountain bikes are best for young riders who no longer need training wheels, and some have suspension forks to absorb shocks on the trail and usually come with 20 and 24″ wheels. These fit riders 6-11 years old.
Think of us as a full-service bike shop for your kids. We carry a host of bike gear and helmets for kids. And if you’re having trouble teaching your kids to ride, give Professor Pedals a shout. They have great information on how to help.
