When it comes to our children riding on two wheels, safety and quality are paramount. Parents are increasingly choosing to shop with specialist bike shops such as Banjo Cycles in Newbury to make sure they get the best from their investment.

Banjo Cycles stock children’s bikes that are ergonomically made, adapted to the shape of your child with narrow bars, short reach and contact points. Frog bikes are lightweight and hold their value, so you can trade it in for their next bike with their part exchange scheme.

Crucially for time-poor parents, Banjo’s will build the bike for your child, so no Sunday afternoons sweating over complicated instructions. If you aren’t au fait with the mechanics of a bike, it can be easy to attach parts incorrectly which can be a safety hazard if bolts are not tightened and it is not adjusted correctly to their height.

Here are the key reasons to choose Banjo’s for your child’s bike:
