Children have lots of fun riding around on their bikes and roaming the neighbourhood. Parents will take their offspring on trips into nature, or will ride with them daily on the way to school. Children’s bicycles should have several crucial components to increase their road worthiness and simultaneously ensure the safety of the child. This is what you should look out for when purchasing a children’s bike.
The following generally applies: Parents should give considerable attention to posture, wheel size and seating position. If these are not right, then their offspring will not have any fun riding their children’s bike. The field of vision for an under twelve does not extend to a full 180°, it is approximately 30 percent less than that of their parents. Therefore the seating position for children on a bike should be more upright, as they will not have the right overview. Furthermore “Growing into a bike” should be categorically ruled out.
Children sometimes grow quickly and it is always a guessing game when the next growth spurt will happen. A bike that is too big takes the fun from cycling and is very dangerous too. If your child cannot reach the ground safely when stopping, this may lead to dangerous situations.
