6 MYTHS ABOUT CHILDREN'S BIKES

1)      THE GEOMETRY OF THE FRAME DOES NOT MATTER

The construction of the frame is essential for the comfort, health of the child and safe operation of the bike. The frame must not be unnecessarily long. The child should not be too upright or, conversely, in an uncomfortable unhealthy forward bend. The child's bike is then harder to control, and his safety is endangered.

2)      ANY BRAND/BIKE MANUFACTURER DO NOT DEAL WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF CHILDREN’S BIKE FRAMES

Most established bike brands do not devote themselves to the specialized development of children's bikes either at all or only minimally. Fortunately, even here, there are exceptions that address the development of children's bikes and things about their special geometry and put them at the forefront of their interest. The bike for adults is a different product than the bike for children, and with this it is also necessary to approach its development and production.

3)      BY CHOOSING THE WRONG SIZE WILL NOT HURT, IT DOES NOT MATTER

The child's first impression of the bike and riding it is absolutely crucial. The wrong choice of frame size often disgusts the child for the whole cycling, because his bike is simply difficult to control. Rather than a child, the bike then steers the bike by its rider. Not to mention that a non-fitting frame and the associated bad sitting on the bike can have an adverse effect on the musculoskeletal system of children and their proper development.

4)      BUYING A NEW CHILDREN’S BIKE IS USELESS

It may be possible to buy a quality second-hand children's bike, in good condition, and still suitable for your child, but it is more a matter of chance and good luck. It's better to try a bike for example, for half a day from the dealer, and when it really sits, buy it fully adjusted, ready and under warranty.

5)      THE CHILDREN'S CYCLOCROSS BIKE DOES NOT EXIST

It does exist. For example, Beany produces a cyclocross model on 26” wheels for children in sizes from 130-160 cm. On these bikes, children ride well on the road and on dirt roads. This is a great variant of a children's bike for someone who does not ride in difficult terrain.

6)      DESIGN DOES NOT MATTER

Design is a bit of a tricky thing. IT must appeal to both parents and children themselves. Cycling will make children more enjoyable if they have a bike that they like. We would also not like to drive a car, which we don't like :)
