    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 long 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.
