Are you wondering which bike to pick for your children and haven't found the answer yet?
We are here to help you out with simple tips how to run a quick bike fitting test with your child to prevent yourself from unpleasant situations.
The most important thing to do is to measure the inseam of the child to find the suitable bicycle size from our sizing chart with ease!
Measuring Your Inseam
Since this is the primary measure used to calculate your best bike size, don't base your inseam simply on your kids pants size. You need to be more precise. Here's how to do it:
- Stand with your back against a wall.
- Spread your feet 15-20cm apart on a hard, smooth surface.
- Place a book between your legs and up against the wall, spine up; raise it until snug against your crotch (this mimics your bike seat).
- Have another person measure from the top of the book (spine) down to the floor.
This is how you will know your kids inseam length. Which corresponds to our bicycle size charts as follows:
Bungi Bungi Lite 14 = 36 to 45 cm
Bungi Bungi Lite 16 = 41,5 to 51,5 cm
Bungi Bungi Lite 20SS and 3SPD = 48 to 56 cm
Remember! Buying a larger bike to have it for longer time is biggest mistake parents make! If you still have doubts please contact us!
