Discover Cleary’s range of 16-inch bikes for kids. A 16-inch bike is a great size bike for young children who are learning to ride or moving onto their second bike. Our 16-inch children’s bikes are the second smallest in our range and ideal for preschoolers up to elementary school children in the three to six-year-old age group.
16-inch children’s bikes are a great size to learn on but offer kids’ more scope than a balance or toddler’s bike. The lightweight steel frames of our 16-inch bikes make this an easy size to control and both fun and safe to ride. Our 16-inch kid’s bikes feature hand brakes, just like an adult bike. These small, kids-sized hand brakes help kids progress their riding capabilities.
Children aged three to six find our 16-inch bikes to be a good fit. But age is just a number, so we recommend measuring your child to get the perfect fit. A bike with a 16-inch wheel height is a good size for kids with an inseam in the range of 16 to 25 inches. To find the perfect size for your child based on their inseam and height, see our kid’s bike sizing guide.
A child with a 16″ to 18″ inseam will fit a 16-inch bike with the seat post dropped as low as possible and feet flat on the ground. As your little rider gets more confident, raise the seat post, so just their tiptoes touch the ground. An adjustable seat lets children grow and ride this bike size for several years.
