View Full Version : Where to buy new 20 inch bike for my daughter

My daughter has outgrown her 16" bike and ready to upgrade to a 20 inch.

We have been checking out the Electra sold at REI.

Any recommendations on shops to check out or specific bikes would be appreciated.

Does anyone in Portland take back kids bikes when upgrading?

In Madison Wisconsin this was a given, some stores refunding as much as 50% of the purchase price when applied to the purchase of another kids bike.

Best suggestion is to buy from a dealer whose service you like. Most kids bikes are all built overseas in the same factories. Giant Bicycle builds for a lot of the other big name builders. So what you are getting isn't very different brand to brand.

The difference is in the store you buy from. Find one that puts it together well the first time. Adjusts it correctly for your daughter when you buy it. Offers a free 30 day tune up at minimum.
