Let his personality shine through with the colors he loves and bicycle decorations that make him stand out from the crowd. When it comes to finding the ideal bike for him, there are a lot of factors to keep in mind. The great news is that kids can start properly riding bikes from about 3 years of age. Choosing the right bike for your child is crucial for him to ride safely and with confidence. That said, let’s dive into your guide to bikes for boys.
What Size Bike Does Your Child Need?
Much like clothing, children need a bike that looks nice and feels comfortable. Therefore, it’s imperative to find a bike that properly fits your kiddo. After all, a bike that’s too large will be difficult to ride and control. Conversely, a bicycle that’s too small might cause him to feel cramped. The general rule of thumb is to use a size chart, but if you don’t have one, you can use this as a guide:
- Wheel Size: 12” Age: 2-3 Height: 2’10”-3’4”
- Wheel Size: 14” Age: 3-4 Height: 3’5”-3’7”
- Wheel Size: 16” Age: 4-5 Height: 3’7”-4’0”
- Wheel Size: 20” Age: 5-8 Height: 4’0”-4’5”
- Wheel Size: 24” Age: 8-11 Height: 4’5”-4’9”
Types of Boy’s Bikes
Guides and charts are helpful as a starting point, but there’s nothing more useful than watching your kid actually test out a bike. In addition, you should consider where the bike will be ridden. Do you want a bike that he can simply ride up and down the street on? Does he want to go offroad? Wherever he wants to go, there’s a bike for that.
Bicycles built for traveling on paved roads.
Three-wheeled vehicles for young children.
Single-speed bikes perfect for relaxed jaunts around town.
Boy’s Bike Accessories
Once you’ve settled on the perfect bike, he’ll need a few clutch bike accessories to kick his ride into high gear. Bike accessories help him experience the world on two wheels in style with innovative gadgets designed to increase his safety and comfort. The only accessories that you’ll need are those designed to keep the rider safe. This means that a helmet, as well as elbow and knee pads, are necessary. As far as accessories that you might want, the possibilities are endless. There are a variety of awesome accessories for kid’s bikes such as horns, bells, and wall hangers. You can also complete his outdoor ensemble with a stylish pair of kids sunglasses to keep the sunlight and wind out of his eyes.
