Tykes Bykes’ New Models

by Stacey on June 20, 2015

This Spring/Summer Tykes Bykes has released new models of the 12″ and 16″ balance bikes.  The 12″ Scamper has been modified to fit a wider range of inseams.   The seat height now starts at 12.5 inches and adjusts up to 17.5 inches.  The bikes still have a rear brake and nice, wide handlebar to help with stability.  They’ve updated the paint style on these rugged bikes, also.  The Scamper should be a great fit for kids through 4 years old.  The 16″ Charger has expanded it’s seat height from 16 inches min to 23 inches max.  They’ve added alloy rims to the tires to help lighten the bike a bit.  Again, the paint style has been changed and looks really cool!  The new model still comes with a rear brake and quick release clamp for seat adjustment.  The Charger is designed for kids over 4 years old.  Check out the pictures of the new design!


Great Holiday Season

by Stacey on December 28, 2014

Thanks to everyone who has made this a great holiday season for balance bikes. As predicted, balance bikes were are becoming an attractive gift for any child who is eager to learn to ride. This meant some items selling out before the season was over, and we apologize if you couldn’t find what you were looking for this season. We are seeing that inventory is starting to catch up with demand and we will have a great selection going into the spring.

Quick reminder: A balance bike could be the perfect use of the $$ sent by a grandparent, aunt or uncle… Especially when you send them a picture of your little one enjoying their generosity. Just a thought.

Looking forward to a great 2015! Ride safely!
