THE PRIORITY START 20" LETS KIDS EXPLORE THE WORLD WITH CONFIDENCE AND STYLE

Our Start Series was inspired by our very own kids! We designed a collection of bicycles with sizes and features that cater to little ones as they grow and gain confidence. The Start 20" is ideal for riders (6-11 years old) graduating from a 16-inch bicycle who are pedaling longer distances across varied terrain and need more gears to get there. Like all our bicycles, it is rooted in our low maintenance, high quality promise built around our rust/grease-free Gates belt drive.

START 20" FEATURES

The 20-inch bicycle is an important one—it provides a budding cyclist with more control over how and where they ride. You don’t want a cheap toy bicycle that's a hassle to put together and maintain, and can’t stand up to the demands that a young rider puts on it. Let’s be honest—kids aren’t known for taking care of their stuff, at least not our kids! So, the 3-speed Priority Start 20" has adult-grade features that are scaled down to accommodate little riders with big cycling dreams. As always, the grease/rust-free Gates belt drive is at the core with features that help kids embrace their love of being on a bicycle, coupled with the quality needed to pass it down to siblings or friends.

01

RUST/GREASE-FREE BELT DRIVE

Chains are the # 1 issue on bicycles. They get dirty, fall off, and they're at a perfect height for kids to grab and then get grease everywhere. Our rust-free and grease-free Gates Belt is cleaner, smoother, and doesn’t require maintenance. Also, it won’t snap off or break under the weight of a rider.

02

3-Speed Rear Hub

This is the same industry-leading Shimano hub that's featured on our adult models. The 3-speed internally geared hub carries the same range as a 7-speed cassette, in a cleaner, more efficient, ultra low-maintenance package.

03

Kid-Friendly Dual Handbrakes

Dual handbrake levers connected to smooth stopping v-brakes allow for a comfortable, confident ride. The levers are placed at a kid-friendly reach for their smaller hands.

04

Durability & Rust-Fighting

Kids bikes get left on lawns with sprinklers, tossed in the back of cars, dropped, and any number of other things that happen with our little ones. The lightweight aluminum frame won’t rust, neither will the alloy wheels and stainless steel spokes. It’s a quality bike built to last long enough for sharing with siblings and friends.

05

Puncture-Resistant Tires

It’s an awesome feeling when your kids are ready to ride with—and without— you. But road debris and sharp stones on bike paths can be a real bummer. Our puncture-resistant tires help protect against unwanted flats.

06

Kid-Specific Geometry

Learning to ride a bike can be intimidating for some kids. We aimed to make our fit comfortable and approachable for young, growing riders so they would be excited to hop on and embrace the adventure!

PROPER SIZING

We recommend sizing based on your leg inseam. To properly determine your inseam, measure from the top of your crotch to the ground with your shoes off. Please watch the below video and contact us any time with questions!

FAQS

You have questions. We have answers.

What size is best for my child?

Inseam is best. Start there. While bicycles target age and height, inseam will be the best determining factor for which bicycle is best for your child. As their riding confidence increases, so will their ability to ride bigger bicycles. They will move from a more flat-footed stopping position to their tiptoes, ultimately being able to slide forward off their seat at stopped positions.

How many speeds does the bicycle have?

Our Start 20" and 24" models feature a Shimano 3-speed hub—the same hub we use on our adult recreational bicycles—offering a nice gear range with simple intuitive usage for climbing hills (gear 1), flat cruising (gear 2), and gaining speed (gear 3).

Can I add training wheels?

Training wheels can be added to our Start 16" (they don't come with the bicycle though). Typically for age-based sizing, riders on our Start 20" and 24" models are already cruising with confidence, so those bicycle models don’t support training wheels.
