Determine the optimal frame size for your children's bike

Which wheel size is most suitable?

Children's bikes are measured differently than adult's bikes. In order for the child's bike to fit optimally, the wheel size should match the body size of the child. Use our children's wheel chart for guidance.

Individual wheel manufacturers also specify the frame size. You will find also recommendations in our children's wheel chart. Our recommendation: We know children grow fast and there is the temptation to buy a children's wheel to "grow". But especially for young cyclists, an appropriately sized is essential to learn how to cycle with pleasure and enthusiasm.
