Kids just want to have fun

Some of us at Ian Brown's Cycle Shop have had children ourselves and buying bikes for them as they have grown has enabled us to form the age old opinion of "You get what you pay for".

We also know that between three years and fourteen years it will mean several changes of shoe size as well as bicycle size. However a good bike, that is fitted well, will give hours and hours of pleasure and as important as a good pair of well fitting shoes. Too many children's' bikes are poorly made and poorly fitted making the cycling experience poor and not enjoyable to ride. We buy all our children's bikes from quality manufacturers Raleigh, Dawes, Giant, Cube, Frog and Specialized.

Specialized Hotwalk

If we were to stop and think about it, learning to ride back in the day bordered on a traumatic event. The crashes, oh the crashes. These days, however, kids have it easy with awesome little bikes like our Boy's Hotwalk.

With no pedals or gears, it's designed to help Junior finds his balance by making it as easy as possible to put his feet down. In fact, scooting around with his feet is how the bike moves (outside of gravity), so he'll get used to the feeling of riding without much of the risk.

Even better for you, there isn't much that can break should the bike hit the deck on the pump track, so there's less maintenance then with a "traditional" bike. That's right, you get parental hero status, and they have the time of their lives while they're learning to ride. Win-win.

 

  • Durable and tough, the A1 Premium Aluminium walking frame is designed specifically for little ones to scoot around safely.
  • The Rhythm Lite Sport tires are heavy-duty, and allow your little dude to scoot around on- and off-road.
