Kids Balance Bike Sizing Guide

By Jo 11 months agoNo Comments

The right sized bike will allow your child to be and feel comfortable on their bike and ride safely. Helping them to build their confidence and develop. So they can SMILE when they ride.

Get the right sized bike by following our simple measurement guide.

You will need your child, a book and something to measure with (in centimetres), and scales to weigh your child.

How to measure your child’s inseam:

  • Have your child to take their shoes off and stand up straight, with their back against a wall.
  • Place a book between their legs and slide it up the wall to meet the crotch firmly as if they are seated on a saddle.
  • Make sure your child still has their heels on the ground, then mark with a pencil where the top of the book the touches the wall.
  • Measure the distance from the floor straight up to the mark in centimetres (cm)

How to measure height:

  • Ask your child to remove their shoes and stand straight, with their back against a wall.
  • Place a book on their head so that it touches the wall.
  • Make sure your child still has their heels on the ground, then mark with a pencil where the bottom of the book touches the wall.
  • Measure the distance from the floor straight up to the mark in centimetres (cm)
