The Kids Bike that Bike Riders Choose for their Kids
The 18" BYK E350 hits the sweet spot for an ergonomically designed kids bike that's lightweight and fun to ride. Ideal for kids between 4 and 6 years old, they are often requested by parents who are keen bikers and know the value of getting their child a good bike.
We find these bikes are great for families - because they are great quality they get passed down from sibling to sibling (with a few new stickers and a bit of bling along the way if needed!)
We will also usually take them back as a trade-in on the next bike size - they are always in hot demand even second hand, by people who know they just last and last.
In our own family we have a E350 that is now on it's 3rd little rider. Despite being on a balance bike since he could walk, he still like to ride this one with trainer wheels on (sigh).
The E350 is a popular model best suited for kids aged 4-6, or between 95 - 117cm tall. If you're not sure how tall your child is, we do have a height chart in our kids play area that will tell you! Because the bike is almost unique in that it has 18 inch wheels it's great for kids who aren't confident enough to move from a 12" to a 20" wheel.
Training wheels are completely optional - some kids need them, some don't. Just let us know either way and we'll add or remove them either when you purchase the bike or a couple of months down the track!
The BYK E350 features a smooth handling long wheelbase which puts the rider in a good position. The wheels are super efficient and easy for kids to push around because we use very slick tires with little rolling resistance. The braking system is kid-safe: They can back-pedal to use the footbrake and graduate to using the calibrated alloy handbrakes front and rear when they are ready.
Optional Extras for Kids Bikes
Additional extras include adding a flag, front basket, or BMX style racing plate. Because these items sell out fast we don't always have them in stock - please allow a couple of days for us to get more from our supplier if needed. We can also upgrade the hand grips to more colourful choices, change the saddle or pedals, and these items are usually in stock.
