Where To Shop For Your Child's New Bike 

There's more to bike buying than finding the cheapest price

Here are the top advantages of buying from High Gear Cyclery:

1. The Best Selection

High Gear Cyclery offers a wide selection of bikes for different kids and uses. This means there's a great chance for one-stop shopping. Or, if the bike you want isn't in stock, you can order and get it quickly. Also, our people at the shop are experts ready to answer all your questions. If the new bike is to be a surprise, the shop will even help you keep it hidden.

2. Comfort And Safety, Guaranteed

Bicycles come in different sizes. And they're very adjustable. High Gear's experts will help you find the right frame size and then dial in the fit by positioning the seat and handlebars to your child’s dimensions  (this can happen after you've surprised your child with the bike, too). This ensures optimum comfort and complete control for safe rides.  As your child grows feel free to stop by the shop for additional adjustments.

3. Professional Assembly

You might be surprised to learn that bicycles are not completely assembled at the factory. They come disassembled and in a box, and the shop spends about an hour assembling, tuning and testing the bike (at no additional charge to you). What's more, High Gear's technicians are happy to make adjustments and provide advice should you need assistance during a purchase or after a sale.

4. Lifetime Of Free Adjustments Included

Your new bicycle will be prepared to insure safe and enjoyable cycling. Only with proper maintenace will your new bicycle perform like new for years to come. High Gear Cyclery provides to our new bike customers basic gear and brake adjustments to their new bicycle at not charge for the life of the bike. Bicycles purchased from High Gear that require service beyond what is offered at no charge will receive a discount towards the required service package.

5. Every Bike Guaranteed.

High Gear Cyclery stands behind every bike they sell. If something goes wrong, bring it in and we be happy to deal with it. In the rare event of a breakdown, there's also a manufacturer's warranty protecting your purchase.

6. Trade Up Value

Bike shop quality kids bikes are built to last a long time.  However, kids grow up fast, and their bikes get set aside when they’ve outgrown them. These bikes now can be put to good use and provide value to you after your child has grown out of his/her bike.

Now you can trade in any working children’s bike that was purchased from High Gear for a Trade-up Credit -- the one you buy from us today, or the one you bought in the past.  Use your Trade-up Credit on the purchase of any new bike in our store.

High Gear Cyclery, working with the Watchung Wheelmen Cycling Foundation, will donate your trade-in to one of a few select non-profit organizations that will make sure the bike finds a good home either in our area or in a developing country.

Here’s how the trade-up program works.

7. Accessories, Too

Cycling's more fun when they have the right gear to go along with that new bike. High Gear Cyclery is loaded with top-quality accessories and equipment such as helmets, locks, pumps, hydration systems, computers, and plenty of other goodies designed to help your children enjoy riding. Plus, we have the expertise to help you make the best selection.

8. Free Advice

Finally, perhaps the best reason to buy from High Gear is that our staff takes pride in being  knowledgeable and enthusiastic cyclists who love to share their expertise. As you and your child get into cycling, there's a lot to learn and having a helpful friend at the shop is the best way to get the advice you need.

All these things should be considered before buying your child a new bicycle. One of your first choices, and not necessarily an easy one, will be where to shop. It can be a challenge because there are a myriad of stores that carry two-wheelers, from specialty retailers, to giant department stores, to backyard garage operations and online options.

Where you buy, however, has everything to do with what you get. You see, bicycles aren't like toasters or suitcases. Bikes are shipped broken down in boxes and they must be assembled and tuned. There are many types, too, and you shouldn't buy unless you have a good idea what your child will like. Measurements and adjustments are required to ensure the frame is the correct size and that the seat and handlebars are properly positioned. And, every new bicycle requires a minor tune-up after several weeks of use.

What's more, kids can be hard on bikes, riding them over rough terrain and sharing them with their friends. A quality two-wheeler, carefully assembled and fitted, will be the safest, most durable and fun bicycle to ride.

That's why we strongly recommend shopping at High Gear Cyclery. Here you'll find competent salespeople and expert mechanics who'll ensure that you get the right bike and a quality machine. Our store is clean, has helpful personnel, offers a good selection, and an on-site repair department.
