Product Description

The World's best selling Belt Drive bike....

... just got better. Refined with the help of over 100,000 young riders, the Belter 16 is built with the very best components and performs in a way that will make you rethink what your child is capable of.

A ridiculously good 4 bearing cassette-hub puts pay to energy sapping distortion when those little legs power down to crush the hills. Our market leading, micro adjust drive system ensures perfect alignment for the efficiency kids need to ride further and to explore more. A sliding drop out that allows effortless wheel removal and refit without the hassle of realigning. The same bearings found on our £2,000 full suspension bikes, because the smallest kids need the biggest help. A super lightweight aluminium frame, hand brushed so our craftsmanship and quality materials are there for all to see. Ritchey Logic finishing kit for confidence inspiring controls that will help your child progress further than you imagined. And, despite still being a paltry 5.7kgs, 2" Vee Speedsters to add stability and better roll over because we all know what it feels like to hit bumps on skinny tyres.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

16" Kids Bike Guide

 

Kids Bike Guide

Learning to ride a bike has never been easier and there are a wide range of kids bikes to suit every child of every age. Choosing the right bike for your child can make all the difference to their cycling experience. In this guide we’ll look at all the features you need to consider when choosing the perfect kids’ bike.


Size and Weight

Is weight important?

Weight is probably even more important for a kid’s bike than an adult’s bike. This is because an adult’s bike can weight around 20% of their body weight while a kid’s bike can weigh up to 50% of their weight. A heavy bike is hard to ride while a lighter bike makes cycling easier and more enjoyable.

Some kids bike brands like Frog and Squish put a lot of focus on weight but the more you spend on a kid's bike, the lighter it will be.

Which size kids’ bike is best?

Kids bikes are sized by their wheel size. You will of course want the colour and style of your child’s new bike to be right, but the most important thing is to get one that’s the right size.

While it's tempting to buy a kid's bike that your child can grow into, so you can wait a little longer before buying the next size up, but a large, ill-fitting bike will be hard to ride, and can even put them off cycling.

Kids and junior bikes have wheels that are between 12” and 24” in diameter. Frame size is matched to wheel size and it’s this wheel size that gives the bike it’s overall size.

What to Look For in a 16" Wheel Kids Bike

Frame

Kids’ bike frames are usually made from steel or aluminium alloy. The best kids’ bikes have aluminium frames as these are lighter weight. A low standover height means that their feet can easily touch the ground and helps make mounting and dismounting the bike easier.

Wheels & Stabilizers

Kids bikes with 16” wheels usually have chunky tyres that offer traction and stability as well as comfort on rougher ground.

If the bike has stabilizers, they are easily removable if/when your child has learned to ride without them.

Brakes

Little hands often find it difficult to pull brake levers, so many of the best small kids’ bikes have a normal brake on the front combined with a coaster brake on the rear wheel. Coaster brakes work by pressing back on the pedal, so are intuitive for little kids to use.

The brake levers for regular style brakes are usually adjustable so that you can ensure that your child can get their fingers around the brakes.

Other Features

Some 16” wheel kids’ bikes have fully enclosed drivetrains while others have the chain partly of fully exposed. A fully enclosed drivetrain is safer as it will keep inquisitive little fingers from getting caught in the chain, but it does add weight and makes maintenance more difficult.

Adjustable seatposts mean the bike can grow with your child while mudguards allow them to ride on wet surfaces without getting wet themselves.
