Shopping for a children's bike? Over 400 models to choose from!

A-brand children's bikes at great prices


Shopping for a children's bike online? Hollandbikeshop.com has the children's bike you’re looking for. 
We have great bicycles for the youngest cyclists who are discovering cycling for the first time and for slightly older cyclists who have some experience. 

Types of bicycles for kids of all ages 

Children's bikes come in all shapes and sizes, from tricycles to bicycles with 26 inch wheels. Children often have their first cycling experience when they're around 12 months old, for instance with a tricycle with a push bar, specifically suitable for that age. With a tricycle, your child can become acquainted with cycling as it plays and you can push them along or slow them down using the push bar if needed. For children aged 2 years and up that are strong enough for it, we have balance bikes. Balance bikes help children learn to keep their balance while steering a bicycle, without also having to pedal. From the age of 3, children can make the transition to their first “real” bicycle with training wheels. These bicycles, designed for the smallest cyclists, have 12 inch wheels and feature training wheels to make learning to pedal as safe as possible. 
Since children simply grow up very fast, they’re likely to make their move to a bicycle with a larger wheel size soon after - like 16 inch, 18 inch, 20 inch, 22 inch, 24 inch or 26 inch wheels. 
When your child is learning how to cycle, safety comes first. If their bicycle doesn't come with training wheels, you can easily install them yourself. In our range, you'll find training wheels for children's bikes with a 12 to 20 inch wheel size. 

Selecting the right children's bike for your child depends on several things, like the age of your child. Some children can be small or tall for their age so it's important to look at your child's length and clothing size. Body length and clothing size are clearer indicators for the right size bicycle for your child. The size chart below may also help you choose.
 

Children's bike size chart 

What is the right size children's bike for my child? 
In this chart, children's bike sizes are indicated with their tire size (12 to 16 inch). When you're choosing the right size children's bike the child's age is a good point to start from, but children grow fast and some might soon be considered tall for their age, so it's always smart to look at clothing size and height as well. Clothing size and height are two clear indicators that will help you determine the right children's bike size. Once you've found the right size, all you have left to do is decide on a children's bike for a boy or a girl.

Children's bike - Things to consider 

When purchasing a children's bike, the right size is important. You can use our size chart to determine the right size for your child. Once the children's bike you selected has been delivered, you may still need to make a few adjustments. Make sure that it's easy to get on and off the bicycle and that your child is able to reach the ground with its feet when seated. While cycling, their legs should never be fully stretched and their knees shouldn't touch the handlebar. In short, the saddle shouldn't be too high or too low. Next, the handlebar should be set at the correct height. When determining the right height for the handlebar, you can safely assume that the handlebar should be at least 4 centimeters higher than the saddle. 
Also take the bicycle's weight into account; children's bikes are easily considered heavy. A steel children's bike with 16 inch wheels can quickly weigh up to 12 - 15 kg, while the child riding it will weigh around 35 - 45 kg. You may want to select a lighter bicycle instead, like a bicycle made of aluminum. 
Other adjustments to the children's bike are optional. For extra safety, you can equip your child's bicycle with a safety flag, for instance. With a safety flag, you’ll increase their visibility in traffic. Add a personal touch by decorating it with various colorful accessories like spoke beads, streamers or eye-catching dress guards. Bicycle helmets are also a great way to keep your cycling child safe. They offer added protection and come in many different colors to match your child’s bicycle. 
Last but definitely not least,  the price is also something to consider. 
Children's bikes are available at Hollandbikeshop.com, starting at €138.95 for a 12 inch wheel size. We offer balance bikes starting from €38.95.
