In the table below the graphic, the tire size refers to the diameter of the rim including the tyres. You will find the ETRTO dimensions for the spare tires and the corresponding frame size. In addition, there is further information, age recommendations and tips for the most common frames.
You can search for a children's bike based on the size. You buy a bicycle for adults based on your height. The frame height or the frame size is measured from the center of the pedal axis to the end of the seat tube (without seat).
The overall height of a kick scooter is not equal to the handlebar length. With a stunt scooter you have to add the wheels and part of the deck to the handlebar length. For all freestyle or stunt scooters there is an indication of the handlebar size and an indication of the total height. Kick scooters for adults sometimes have a variable handlebar height of x to y centimeters. This indicates the total height measured from the ground, to be set similar to a bicycle using the handlebar screw connection.
The following overview explains the different frame sizes and tire sizes. From 12" balance bikes to 20" BMX bikes to large 28" bicycles, you can clearly see the different dimensions. There is also another overview of the various kickboards, stunt scooters, kick scooters and kick bikes. With a scooter or stunt scooter, it is important that your hands If the handlebars on the scooter are higher than the driver's chest, your hands will fall asleep after a few hundred meters while driving!
Thumb Rule Stunt scooter total height = between the rider's chest and navel
Regular bike frame height = about hip height below the waist
As with any good rule of thumb, there are always one or more exceptions. BMX bikes, for example, only have a relatively small frame, but are also very suitable for teens and sporty adults. Furthermore, of course, there are exceptions in terms of body size, both upwards and downwards. A young person with a small body height should always feel safe on his bike, the frame must not be chosen too big too early. There are also teens who almost crack the 2 meter mark at a young age. Then it is logically recommended to use a correspondingly large frame directly.
For the very young kids, kickboards and scooters that grow with them are perfect. The Scoot & Ride brand from Austria, for example, offers very good kickboard - impeller combination models. From 1-3 years sitting and from 2-5 years standing on the kickboards and balance bikes of the top brands from #KBS.
