First bike for 4 year old

Looking to get a new bike for my oldest son.(He is 4 in April) Have had a look in Halfords at the 14" wheeled models.(Between £40 -£100) They look pretty small and I would like one that will last a few years. Not looking for the cheapest but best value.(Hard wearing, safe, reliable etc)

I have found this 16" one in Edinburgh.(£109) Any thoughts?

We got our kids bikes from Toysrus and have had no problems with them at all. They are sturdy and safe, and have taken some real abuse over the years. :thumbsup:

They did start of with the 14" wheel though as the first bike rather than the 16", but it depends really on how tall they are.

Hope it helps.

Thats what I thought was good about it, the aluminium frame should help a lot.

I'd be careful with bikes - I got our 5 year old a 16" wheel bike when he was 4 (I thought the 14" would be too small). Even at its lowest seat height his feet can now only reach the ground (and he's tall for his age). Although the seat is now at the right height for putting his feet on the ground - its the wrong height for pedalling. It just makes it more difficult for them to learn to ride.....

Thing is - if you get one that's too small they soon grow out of it. The other problem is this will all vary according to the design of the frame, not just the size of the wheel.

You obviously can't sit him on the bike if you want to keep it a surprise but you could measure his inside leg and see what a bike shop recommends.

And if your son is going to cycle in the rain to school - he'll need some mudguards!!

I'm going to go into the Edinburgh shop and get advice from a salesperson. My son had a ride around on the ones in Halfords so I don't think it will be a complete surprise, lol. :)
