BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Batch The Kid’s Bicycle. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

11 reasons to buy

  • In one expert's opinion, The Kid’s Bicycle is a great budget option for children learning to ride.
  • Parents say The Kid’s 20” Bicycle is perfect for kids graduating from a smaller balance bike.
  • One reviewer sees the aluminum frame and quality components as durable.
  • Each of the three sizes has multiple color options for children to choose between.
  • Several buyers praise the high quality and low weight of The Kid’s Bicycle.
  • One reviewer says that the bike’s child-optimized geometry makes it much easier for kids to handle the bike.
  • The three sizes fit children from 2'11" to 4'4" in height and aged 3 to 8 years (approximately).
  • A sturdy chainguard keeps pants, shoelaces, and fingers away from the chain.
  • A reviewer appreciates the quick-release seatpost clamp, which makes it easy to adjust seat height.
  • The 12" and 16" versions of The Kid’s Bicycle come with removable training wheels.
  • Single-speed simplicity makes it easier for children to learn to pedal a bike and reduces maintenance requirements.

5 reasons not to buy

  • In one expert's opinion, coaster brakes make learning to pedal more complex and potentially unsafe.
  • The 12" bike weighs 18lb (including training wheels) which one expert thinks is too heavy for a three-year-old.
  • A tester is disappointed that the 20" bike's wheels aren't quick-release, so removing them to fix a flat is more time-consuming.
  • One reviewer says the single-speed drivetrain makes it hard for kids to ride uphill, which may deter some people from buying the 20" model.
  • One expert sees coaster brakes as a big drawback, made worse by the bike’s lack of hand brakes.

Bottom line

The Batch Kid's Bicycle is an affordable children's starter bike available in three sizes: 12", 16", and 20". Each model has a single-speed drivetrain and coaster brakes. The Kid's 12" is relatively heavy, and one expert feels the coaster brakes make the learning process more challenging. In addition, a single-speed drivetrain on the 20" model limits riders to flatter terrain. That said, reviewers praise the durable build quality, child-optimized geometry, inclusion of training wheels, and color options. Overall, Batch's Kid's Bicycle is a strong contender in this price range.
