16 inch Kids Bikes for Sale

Designed for children ranging in height from 110 to 120cm, 16in kids bikes are a popular size for a child's second bike. Much like with smaller-wheeled bikes, proper size choice is crucial for your child being safe, comfortable and confident while riding. Department stores will occasionally refer to 16in kids bikes as '40cm kids bikes', an approximate metric conversion.

Materials and components

When it comes to frame materials, cheaper options will feature a steel frame, while more premium models offer aluminium frames which are lighter and resistant to rust. Coaster rear brakes and training wheels are still commonly supplied on 16in bikes. Provided your child has the hand strength and coordination required, hand-lever operated front brakes can also be found on some models.

Colour options and finishes.

Extremely similar in construction to 12in kids bikes, 16in kids bikes are commonly sold in gender-specific options 16 inch boys bikes Boys 16in bikes will usually feature blue, red, green and black colour options. Additional accessories common on boys bikes are racing graphics and number plates. Where a uni-sex bike is desired, look to the boys versions for more neutral colour choices. 16 inch girls bikes Typically just a different colour to the equivalent boys versions, girls 16in bikes generally feature pinks, purples and whites. Girls bikes will often add a few additional accessories, such as streamers and doll baskets – although these can be removed if desired. Where such accessories are not included, they are typically available for purchase at most bicycle shops.
