BikeBike's Kids Bike Trade Up Program

When it comes to fitting kids on bikes, safety, fit, and lightweight are the most important considerations. Safe and a good fit to us mean that the child can safely mount/dismount the bike, operate the controls with confidence, and a lightweight bike is just more fun to ride then a heavy bike. Imagine how much fun you'd (not) be having on a 100lbs bike!

Low quality bikes, like the units you find at mass retailers like Canadian Tire, Walmart, Costco, and Sport Chek are simply not designed to stand up to the rigours kids put them through, and more importantly - are designed to be as cheap as possible resulting in poor riding performance and durability over time. Add in that these bikes are rarely assembled by professional mechanics and you've got a recipe for an lame bike riding experience for your children.
