Small (4-5yo) Child's bike - 14" wheel

Postby alexnharvey » 17 Feb 2021, 3:54pm

Looking for a small but good quality bike for a child, ideally something like the Islabike Cnoc 14 small (but would consider the large version) small Frog bikes and other similar competitors.

Isla bikes are good. Depending on the size of the child you may find the Cnoc 14 a bit small for a 4/5 year old. My son out grew his just before his 4th birthday, and is on as 2O small Bienn now. He not yet 5.

The Cnoc 14 has already been passed down

We have a cnoc 16 and it is definitely too big for a while yet. Maybe the larger 14 would be a good choice

Are you sure the 16" is really too big?

Our 3.5 year old has been on a 16" early rider belter for about 6 months now.

It was a bit big to begin with but now it feels like I'm putting the saddle up a few mm every week.

I was really keen to progress both children of the Cnoc 14 (now sold sorry) because the small wheels really impeded progress on anything but smooth tarmac.

Both kids saw a big improvement going to 16", and the bigger one is now at 20" which is even better.

Feels to me that at 4-5 years it might be a very sort term investment?

I think our cnoc 16 is the equivalent of the current large model and is considerably too big for him (4.33yo) .Maybe next year.

Scratch that, be must be growing faster than I realized and can get his leg over the 16 already.
