What are the different sizes of kids bikes?
Kids' bikes are categorized by wheel size, so you'll need to choose the right size based on your child's height. The main categories are:
- 12/14-inch bikes
- 16-inch bikes
- 20-inch bikes
- 24/26-inch bikes
- BMX bikes

We also have several kids' bikes on clearance, from top brands in the industry like Trek, Giant, Cube, and Cannondale. Afterwards, you can buy a bike online for an in-store pickup or directly in one of our multiple bike stores in the Quebec and Montreal regions.
How to choose the right size bike for kids?
To determine the size of the child's bike needed, you will need to measure the child's height. Then, simply choose the corresponding wheel diameter.
