    Childrens Bikes and Balance Bikes

    We here at Scotby Cycles stock a wide range of kids bikes, from balance bikes right up through small road and mountain bikes with almost full-size wheelsets from some of the most reputable brands in the industry.

    Very young children (e.g. 1-3 years) should start out on balance bikes – the earlier the better. Balance Bikes come without any pedals and are low to the ground and are designed to help a child develop a sense of balance as they scoot along paved surfaces, this pays dividends big time for then they progress onto a larger bike with pedals as often these children won’t need stabilisers having already developed a sense of confidence rolling on two wheels.

    From then onwards the range varies with ever increasing wheel sizes and a wide range of varying components from 12” models for 2-4-year-olds to 26” mountain bikes for kids 11 years or older – this is all subjective so perhaps read through our Buyers Guide or pop in store to try the bikes out for size.
