Bixbi Balance Bikes Classic 12 and MTB 12 are ideal for children ages 2-5 years old with an inseam measurement of 12" to 19" (with addition of the LowRider kit). To determine the best fit, follow the measurement guide below.
You’ll need a book, a measuring tape, and your child in their favorite pair of shoes.
Have your child stand against a wall, place the book between their legs and raise the book up until it hits their crotch. Measure from the top of the book (make sure to hold it level) to the floor.
Subtract 0.5 inches from the measurement and that is the inseam measurement, or what is also called the “standover frame height” for your child (we recommend subtracting 0.5 inches from their inseam because you want your child to be able to place their feet flat on the ground when standing over the bike). See the below chart for best fit.
The Bixbi LowRider adapters get your child riding at a younger age by lowering the standover height, allowing for shorter legs to reach the ground. Bixbi LowRiders are specifically designed for the Bixbi Classic 12 and MTB 12 and will not work on other brands of bikes.
