PROPER BIKE FIT FOR YOUNG RIDERS
Correct bike fit plays a critical role and sets a foundation for a positive riding experience with young riders. Whether it’s a road bike, mountain bike or all-rounder, a good fit ensures comfort and control and allows young riders to maneuver the bike properly. Mountain bike skills such as cornering and riding bumpy terrain are easier to master when the rider’s body and bike are in balance. On a road bike, power output and efficiency are optimized with a proper fit. For young riders just starting out, a safe and positive riding experience on a bike that fits not only cultivates confidence but also gives them a great start on making cycling a lifelong hobby. Follow these guidelines to help find the correct bike size and fit for your child. These steps cover the basics.
