18" 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 18" 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

This is the size of bike where you start to see a little divergence of bike style. Bikes with 18” wheels will either have chunky tyres with knobbles that are good for riding on rough tracks or narrower tyres that are faster rolling on smooth roads.

Brakes

These bikes will have front and rear brakes that are most likely to be MTB style V-brakes. These offer powerful speed control and are easily adjustable. The best 18” wheel kids bikes have brake levers with a reach adjustment feature. This means that you can adjust the lever so that you child’s hand will fit around it, so they can easily pull the brakes.

Gears

Some 18” wheel bikes have gears while others are single speed. Gears can be hard for young children to master but if your child is keen on cycling, they will give them more scope expand their riding horizons. Grip shift style gear shifters allow your child to change gear without having to move their hand from the handlebars.
