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.

16 reasons to buy

  • Parents say Jett Single Speeds are “extremely manoeuvrable”  and “easy to control”.
  • Several parents confirm that the Jett 16 Single Speed is a good first pedal bike. One says it is their daughter’s first bike after a balance bike. She had no problem riding it without pedals, “from day one”.
  • The Jett Single Speed features front and rear hand-operated V-brakes. Parents say they “work flawlessly” and are great for skids.
  • Parents appreciate that brake lever reach is adjustable, for growing hands.
  • A young rider recommends his 20” Jett for off-road riding. A parent describes it as the “top choice” for forest trails and pump tracks.

2 reasons not to buy

  • The 20” Jett Single Speed may limit older riders to flatter terrain.
  • One buyer believes this bike is overpriced for the offered build.

Bottom line

The Jett Single Speed is a simple bike for young riders. Parents confirm that kids really enjoy riding the Jett, in both 16” and 20” sizes. Some say the 16” version is "the best bike",  for 4-5 year-olds graduating from a balance bike. Unlike many 16" bikes, the Jett is equipped with front and rear hand brakes. Components on the Jett Single Speed are all sized specifically for kids and with adjustability in mind. This includes the bike’s grips, saddle, seatpost and brake reach. The lack of gears on the 20" Jett could limit older and more advanced riders to flatter elevations. This is a bike that take’s young riders seriously, but which may ask a higher price for that privilege (outside of sales).
