ByK 620x16 Kids Bike Features

Our E620 Urban range exudes innovation and precision in every detail. We have taken this bigger size children's bike to a new level of efficiency, safety and riding dynamics.

Design:

The 620x16 is uniquely designed for children and is not a scaled down adult bike. Every single component has been considered, tested, custom sized and tuned to suit our rider's profile.

Our unique ergonomic riding position and geometry offer a range of riding positions and adjustability unexpected at this size. Along with our selection of premium components, this bike provides exceptional weight saving and rider comfort unexpected at this size.

Performance:

The SRAM 16 speed gearing is exceptional with the full SRAM cassette combined with SRAM trigger shifters and twin hole cranks, distance riding couldn't be easier.

Strong wheels, durable tyres, tough tubes, comfortable ergonomic saddle, custom shaped handlebars, short reach and long reach pedal position, sealed bearings, grippy pedals and so so much more really separate ByK from the regular offering.

Safety:

From our responsive handling to increased safety at speed, the ByK 620 range sets new standards in safety. The innovative frame improves balance and control to help each rider operate at the safest level possible.

To make a children's bike safe, the rider needs to be able to brake efficiently and confidently. The custom-sized V-Brakes we have used are calibrated for age, ability and ergonomic fit. And they are made of non-flexing, strong and light alloy. Our light weight alloy rims ensure pedalling is easier. But more importantly alloy rims are a more efficient braking surface than cheaper, chrome-plated steel rims, and are therefore safer.

  • True cartridge bottom bracket for straighter chain alignment.
  • SRAM Cassette gears for maximum shift accuracy and reliability.
  • CRM forks for extra comfort and improved handling.
  • Super tough alloy wheels for reduced maintenance.

How to Choose the Right Size Kids Bike

When it comes to choosing the right size kids bike, our over-riding advice is 'smaller is better than bigger'. Children learn to ride with greater ease, have more control on the bike and have a lot more fun if they are the master of their domain.

Our overall advice on choosing the right size kids' bike is based not only on Age and Height, but Ability and Personal Confidence.  

It is all too common to see parents using height as the only key measurement for a bike's correct size. Be careful: it can easily be misleading as an indicator. As most kids' balance develops at roughly the same speed, using age with ability is far more relevant. If you can add age, with height, and ability (ability is a hard one to measure but as a parent you must be honest and realistic) and confidence, than you have a really good indicator.

A bike is the right size when your child can:

  • Sit on the saddle and rest the balls of both feet on the ground.
  • Straddle the top bar with a comfortable clearance and with both feet flat on the ground.
  • Reach the handlebars with a slight bend in the arms when sitting on the seat.
  • If there are handbrakes, your child should be able to grasp them and apply enough pressure to stop the bike. 

The most common reason kids have to move up a size on a normal bike is because of the lack of knee room between the seat and handlebars. This forces you to put up the seat and then your child loses interest or confidence in riding because the centre of gravity is really high and hence the bike becomes even more difficult to ride.

ByK bikes have more knee room than other bikes, which helps to lengthen the life of the bike and make the bike handle in a more predictable way.
