Need some help with bike sizes

I need to get 2 bikes for boys one who is 13 and the other 15. I have no time to go into halfords or any stores to have a look so was going to buy online - but im not sure of sizes. I want bikes that they can grow into and use for the next few years.

So am i looking for 24" and 26" or are they too big/small?

get a better idea if you mention their inside leg, and maybe what yours is, have an idea on sort of height they may reach.

How much bigger do you plan on growing them in the next few years?

they will grow more- im sure. i dont want to buy one thats the right size now but too small in a year or two.

Personally I would find some time and take them to a store to try some. I can see this going rather wrong otherwise.

I would definitely get them measured, my bf has just bought a 22 inch frame bike and he is 5ft 11 !!

what sort of bike?

BMX / Mountain Bike ?

prob need about a 20" / 24" frame will be fine for them - anything bigger and you're looking at adult bikes

i have no idea - just to go riding in the park. Think i will have to take some time out and have a look in halfords etc. Just thought i saw a good deal for a bike at sportssoccer and was going to go for that as the price seems pretty fair - not looking to spend over £80 each really.

Would you buy them mail order shoes without getting them measured?

A bit of time getting them the right bikes will be far more rewarding than buying two bikes that will never get used because they don't fit!

Don't do it. Those things are dire.

Spend a touch more if you can on something they'll want to ride. Something like this on another HUKD thread.

So it's too big for your 9 year old son, then.
