We have a handful of premium quality 14 inch bikes for helping your child master two wheels. These include balance bikes and first pedal bikes in a range of colours. Explore some of the best options on the market to find the perfect fit for your child's adventures.

What age range are 14 inch bikes for?

14-inch children's bikes are generally suitable for children in the age range of 3 to 4 years. 

Although age provides a general guide, each child develops uniquely and may have different needs in terms of size and ability.

This is why at Bike Club we advise checking the bike's inside leg measurement to ensure the best fit and a safe and comfortable cycling experience. All our products feature recommended inside leg measurements so your child can always have a bike that fits like a glove. 

Balance Bike or Pedal Bike

The answer depends on your child's cycling skills and preferences. If your child has already mastered balance, a 14-inch pedal bike will be the ideal next step.

If your child is a beginner or still learning, you can opt for a balance bike. These types of bikes will help them master the basics before moving on to conquer pedals. 

If they are too big for balance bikes but not quite ready for pedals, you can get them a pedal bike and simply remove the pedals. Once they are confident, put the pedals back on - the important thing is that your child feels comfortable and safe while learning!

FAQs About 14 Inch Bikes for Kids

Are 14-inch bikes suitable for beginners?

Yes, 14-inch bikes are ideal for beginners, especially for children aged 3 to 5 years. They are small enough for children to handle with ease and large enough to provide stability and safety while learning to ride.

How do I know if my child is ready to transition from a smaller balance bike to a 14-inch model?

A sign that your child is ready to move to a 14-inch bike is when they can maintain balance and coordination on their current balance bike. Also, if his height and inseam are within the recommended range for a 14-inch bike, he is probably ready to transition.

Are 14-inch balance bikes suitable for off-road riding or only for paved surfaces?

The 14-inch bikes we stock are versatile and can be used on both paved and off-road surfaces. They all have robust pneumatic tyres with good grip for riding on tarmac or off-road trails.
