OK, I am having a bit of confusion around kids bike sizes..... i need to buy a few for my nieces and nephews as gifts and want to give them *the biggest bike* they can ride...... but can't figure out what that is.... 16, 20, 24????? And is that the size it says on the tire? If I have to measure, from what poin to what point do I measure???
Here are their stats:
Kid 1: 24 inch inseam - she rides a 24 inch (says that on her tire) - she looks great.
Kid 2: 23.5 inch inseam - rides a 20 inch - but my brother says he needs a bigger bike
Kid 3: 23 inch inseam - rides a 20 inch without gears - can he go up to a 24?
Kid 4: 17.5 inch inseam - rides a 12 or 16 inch (unsure of the measurement) - what should she be riding?
Also - anyone have any opinions about the Specialized kids bikes?
