Today we’ll help you choose the ideal bicycle size for your child, according to the tips of the site
Mountain biking Brasilia :
When buying a bike for a child of a specific age, it is common to think that the same will become obsolete very quickly depending on the growth of the child and therefore a waste of money to purchase bicycles at the correct size for that age. However, it’s not pleasant or safe see a child riding a big bike or inadequate for your size, since with this he will have difficulty getting on and off the bike.
If it wasn’t enough that the question of the height of the bike, are still questions about what size of wheel? Should I buy a bike with or without? And the suspension?
Choosing the size-For being the first contact, it is essential that children have always the right size bike. Buy a bigger because the child will grow up is dangerous, because it can be insecure, if an accident and even lose the desire to ride. She needs to have easy access to controls and commands as the brakes. Also remember to always choose a lightweight model for them.
The height of the saddle and the handlebars–In case you didn’t know, children, unlike adults, they need to touch the ground with both feet while sitting on the saddle. So, keep in mind that when adjusting the height of the saddle, it must be kept a space between 2 to 3 cm between the top tube and the horse (the measure of the distance between the crotch of the cyclist and the ground). As the height of the handlebars, the ideal is that it is near the height of the shoulders. A handlebar too low or too high will make it harder to control the bike.
The wheels–special attention should be given also to the size of the spokes, to prevent the child has trouble pedaling. In the table below, the ideal wheel size based on the height of the child:
With or without-Although a multi-speed Exchange might seem like an advantage, for a child may seem like an unnecessary complexity for a recreational use, in addition to adding weight. If you choose to purchase a bike with, preferably by Rotary drive (Grip Shift type) because it is more simple and intuitive for children. Check if the drive is smooth enough so that your son can use it without pushing or get hurt.
Suspension-As well as certain models of shock absorbers for adult bikes, you often find suspensions for children’s pedals with a run so hard that have no advantage in addition to the aesthetic aspect, unnecessarily increasing the weight of the bike. When buying a bike with bumper, make sure it is soft (not for your adult weight, but for a kid!), since often a rigid fork meets better the function and does not add unwanted weight or financial cost.
Components-Make sure that the components are completely adapted to the size and strength of the child. Give particular attention to the brake levers which low quality children’s bikes usually have the handle too large and require drive force. Brake cables should not be bulging or frayed. Ideally, to be protected by aluminium terminals. The multi-position handlebars should be soft and small diameter, so that the children can hold firmly.
Watch the power!-Copper attachment chains is essential for small children. They don’t have to take your clothes off in rolling up a fright bike chain, or even hurt the feet on the gears of the bike.
Accessories-Consider the purchase of items such as Horn and bottle. This to them is more a cause for concern. Remember, if you like putting accessories in your bike, you can be sure that they too.
Security–Last but not least, make sure you buy a helmet in appropriate measure (that your spare helmet doesn’t fit) and educating your child on your importance. And every time I go out with him to ride, set an example by using you helmet.
