KIDS BIKES (ages 2 to 12)
Remember your first bike?
Of course you do; we all do! And Smart Cycles wants to help make those memories the best that they can possibly be. Buying a good quality bike for your child at Smart Cycles is easy. We will help you determine which size is best considering your child's size, age, ability, any special concerns and intended use. Safety is always the #1 consideration but we also want you to select a bike that will be FUN for the rider and also that will LAST, not like those toy store and department store junkers.
We understand that investing in a good quality bike for your child is reassuring. Every bike we sell is safe, strong and reliable. That’s the parent in us!
We are well aware that a bike not only needs to function but it also needs to feel good and look cool. We ensure that every bike sold at our store carries the same DNA as many flagship models costing much more.
From trikes, balance bikes and first rides to serious road and mountain bikes for smaller riders. Kids bikes feature colorful graphics and high quality frames and components for a long lasting, safe and exciting start to a healthy, active lifestyle.

The info we provide here on sizing and bike types for kids is very accurate, but sometimes, a rider's very specific needs will require a size or style 'off' this grid. Sometimes you can get a bigger bike, which is great because it will last longer! A visit to Smart Cycles and a test-ride are worth a million words, so come on down.
*26x12 Bikes - If you've done some research and decided that you want a 24" bike for your 7, 8, or 9 year old, you definitely want to try a 26"x12" bike. We know the bikes in the photos below look big, but trust us...they are only a touch taller and longer than 24" models. You may have the choice of getting one of these. It will last longer and the bigger wheels ride much more nicely!
