I’m afraid my child is going to grow out of their bike year over year and I’m not ready to invest in a brand new bike. What should I do?

Check out our Junior Trade Program and trade-in as your child grows. Both used and new bikes are available. 

What if my child doesn’t own their own bike?

We want to make sure a child grows through and out of a bike, never into a bike. If you’re worried about which bike may be best for your child, check out our sizing chart below or ask one of our many experts to help you find the right size! Our experts are here to make sure your child feels comfortable on their bike. You can also come in-store a few days in advance of your child’s first class and we can assess if they are on the right bike. (availability varies by store).
