Kids’ Bikes Black Friday Deals 2019

the holiday season is here if you’re a fan of bike riding you know just how special the freedom of a bicycle can be this year give that Grom in your life the gift of two wheels instead of the gift of a glowing screen get them out in the fresh air so they can explore the world firsthand by bike if all your budget allows is a $100 bike from a big box store don’t let that stop you from getting your kid rolling any bike is better than no bike just make sure if you buy the bike assembled from a department store that the bike is safe and put together properly I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a fork installed backwards on a bike from Walmart if you’re not sure how the bike should be assembled your local bike shop will be glad to make sure you and your child are riding safely now let’s check out some incredible 20-inch wheeled mountain bikes for the youngest of shredders a bike with 20-inch wheels is basically the smallest option if you’re looking for gears I was able to get three nice mountain bikes to check out and as my five year old became the tester I watched him go from pushing a mini BMX bike uphill to learning how to use gears and hand operated brakes all of these 20-inch mountain bikes were probably a bit of a stretch for my boy in terms of sizing but gears were a must he was tired of pushing his single-speed coaster brake BMX bike up little climbs he was ready to roll longer and farther the big baller of the bunch and the bike that looks the most like an adult mountain bike shrunk down for a kid is the Norco fluid HT 2.3 plus at five hundred and seventy nine dollars non mountain bikers may have sticker shock but this machine is trail ready with front suspension 20 by 2.6 inch wide high-volume tires and dual disc brakes the son tour xct junior Fork gets 60 millimeters of travel while it’s basically just a spring with some preload adjustment it’ll take the bite out of some trail bump and makes the Norco look like mom or dad’s MTB Shimano handles the drivetrain duties with a nice 1 by 8 setup featuring an Altis rear derailleur and 11 to 34 tooth it has a hundred and fifty-two millimeter cranks with a narrow wide 28 the seatpost quick release is super handy for on-the-fly satellite adjustments the contact points on the Norco are jr. specific which is a must-have in this category of bike especially for extra young riders brake lever position for my five-year-old was the hardest thing to get dialed on any of these bikes and the tech TRO disc brakes on the Norco had the most quality range of adjustment at first I rolled my eyes at a bike for someone so young featuring hydraulic disc brakes but for the practicality of lever each alone they were the cream of the crop the bike isn’t light at a little over 25 pounds with a big heft coming from the fork but that didn’t seem to matter for our mini tester the 16 inch mera Co BMX bike we found at a thrift store weighed 28 pounds out of the bikes he sampled the Norco was his favorite could be the looks of the big tires the fork and the brakes or it could be the performance of those items instead of 600 bucks on a phone a video game system or a tablet the Norco fluid 2.3 plus is money well invested in any child ready for real mountain biking hit up Norco comm for more info at nearly half the price of the Norco is the affordable and diverse GT stomper prime for $300 it’s a 20-inch wheel mountain bike that has great geometry and sizing for the youngest of riders the GT uses what they call legit fit based off winds smart start idea for early riding the GT had the best stand over clearance with her dropped top to hoop and triple triangle layout additionally the hundred and ten millimeter cranks were relatively short and 539 inch tall three year old was actually able to ride this bike once I lifted him up on top of it he could cruise around the neighborhood as long as I was able to catch him at the end of the ride the stopper also incorporates a Shimano Revo twist shifter which was a highlight for our tiny handed tester he didn’t have to reach for the triggers and definitely learn the art of finding gears best on the stomper thanks to its ease of operation the one by six drivetrain tops out with a 28 to 32 3 paired with the shorter cranks climbing was still very possible but the low end of the gear range was a bit limiting and he found himself pushing on occasion considering we’re not chasing 3 hours epic ascents our goal of some low gear climbing and learning how to use a shifter was definitely achieved on the stopper because the bike had V brakes set up for the smallest hands can be difficult I maxed out the grub screw on the lever to get the reach close enough for his little fingers but for the brakes to be functional with some bite on the rim the cable adjustment leaves the pads really close to the rims if anything goes out of whack there’s rubbing the two point one inch kind of small-block eight tires were great for the BMX track and smooth single track that we have nearby here and at just over 21 pounds the GT was a manageable weight the stopper is a great first mountain bike for the smallest of riders and we’ll get them hooked GT bicycles comm will have all the info you need Trek’s wahoo 20 was the lightest of the bunch at just 19 pounds the 20-inch wheel mounting bike has that longer rear end look that a lot of kids mountain bikes have the standout piece of the bike however is treks alpha aluminum frame for the young rider ready to follow mom dad or sibling on a legit cross-country ride the wahoo uses fast rolling tires 140 millimeter cranks with 32 to chain ring and Shimano 11 to 34 tooth 8-speed cluster outback the rear rim is orange the front rim is black and it even has water bottle cage mounts so your mini Ripper can Sherpa their own hydration Trek recommends that the rider be at least 45 inches tall and our micro masher comes in at an altitude of 43 inches but we made it work and he had a lot of fun on the trek brake lever reach and operation was challenging with such small hands I backed out the grub screws in the lever all the way and replaced them with longer and uglier screws to get the levers close enough to reach the ghetto hack did the job but like with the GT pad contact and brake adjustment on the v brakes is all but maxed out with no room for wobble or error the trek was the guinea pig for learning hand brakes and it took a beating despite some failed coaster brake back pedal memory lapses the wahoo 20 is a great starter mountain bike for the up-and-coming Trek fan at 439 bucks you get a quality frame that will definitely grow with your child the crew at Trek also sent over a Bontrager solstice MIPS helmet at 60 bucks it’s not cheap but it features the added protection of MIPS has an easy-to-use lock down strap in the rear and a fydd lock magnetic buckle system my boy loves the fit lock he can operate it easily and dad’s not gonna pinch the skin under his neck with a stock buckle like I did when he was three SDG just released their kids specific component collection called the junior pro kit the kit features the Slater 650 handlebar with 19 millimeter grip diameter that works with their Slater junior grips the smaller grip diameter means little hands will be in more control 3 millimeter spacer adapters are supplied so normal 22 millimeter size brake and shifter controls can be used on the 19 millimeter bars the 19 millimeter diameter however is promising for the V brake equipped bikes there’s a junior lever made by tech TRO that works only with a 19 millimeter clamp diameter the reach on these levers is nice and close to the bars while providing enough cable pull for a quote unquote normal setup I have these levers on order from Clery bikes the only place I could seem to find them to see if they will help but some of the issues mention earlier and I’ll report on that soon Cleary offers a kid’s bar with a 19 millimeter diameter but their spec is pretty goofy so as glad SDG came to the rescue with the slater bar the SDG junior pro kit also includes the fly junior saddle and slater 90 pedals the pedals provide a nice solid platform and her killer upgrade from the stock afterthought pedals of a kid’s bike they even have replaceable pins since he know your grounds gonna be smashing that rock garden soon hit up SDG components dot-com for more information aside from what’s been discussed here there are a boatload of Grom ready shred machines most major brands have some kind of gear equipped 20-inch wheeled mountain bike for kids and they’re getting more and more modern and updated every year specialized coments Hall Kona Scott spawn cycles early rider trail craft the list goes on and there are plenty of mini machines that will put your grown of MTB to shame we’re just scratching the surface with some of these kids bikes so hit up your local bike shop ask friends or neighbors or just see if your child has a special bike wish if you can’t spend $600 on a kid’s bike and can only spend 60 it doesn’t matter just do what you can to give the gift of bicycle freedom this holiday season you
