Golden rules for buying a kid’s bike

1. Don’t buy a bike for your child to grow into. For safety’s sake, it must fit.

2. Pick it up. Light weight is vital. Look for aluminium tubing or thin (i.e. cricket stump diameter) steel tubes.

3. Be suspicious of suspension – especially at the rear of the bike. Cheap suspension is dead weight that serves no practical purpose.

4. Your child must be able to get a foot down easily when sitting on the saddle

5. More gears are not better. Front derailleurs are superfluous until secondary school.

6. Consider semi-slick tyres. Knobblies look cool but are hard work.

7. Riding position should be fairly upright, with handlebars higher than the seat.

8. Try the brakes using only your little finger. That’s equivalent to a younger child’s grip strength.

9. If the cranks are much too long, see if they can be exchanged for the next size down at point of sale.

10. Less is more. You never get something for nothing. Corners will be cut.
