Your guide to choosing the perfect bike

Share Article

Confused by bike sizing? Not sure of your bike wheel or frame size requirements? Now you can find your perfect bike with this helpful guide to sizing:


Children's bikes are defined by wheel size, and ours start at a 12” wheel and go through the sizes to a 24” wheel.

As a general rule a 2-3 year old would start on a 12” but of course a suitable bike size will depend on the height of your child. Bikes for younger children tend to be fun and more gender defined, and first bikes often come with stabilisers. For boys we have choices with robots and dinosaurs, and for little girls unicorn and enchanted are very popular. 

Knight 12" Wheel

Falcon Jade 20" Wheel

Chill Out 24" Wheel


Once at the top of the wheel sizing, as we get to a 24” wheel which is often for around 9 or 10 year olds, the bikes are then defined by frame size. 

So wheels then start at 26” but bikes are bought by frame size of 14”, 16” or 18”, which are great for teens. You will still find many gender related styles for this age group.

Coyotte Elements 14", 16" Frame


With frames up to 22" there is an overlap between teen and adult bikes, and some bikes are now considered more gender neutral and suitable for anyone. Our Callisto and Coyotte Elements  bikes are specifically not defined as gents or ladies with the Callisto being just as popular with men as with women. 

We also have a selection of Ebikes available and you can read more about these options in the next section.

Falcon Turbine Ebike


Falcon Turbine Ebike
The stylish Falcon Turbine Ebike is a black electric mountain bike that would be any thrill seeker’s dream bike. The Falcon Turbine combines electrical powered assistance with the raw feel of mountain biking, creating a great piece of cycling equipment. The front suspension, large mountain bike tyres, and supportive seat work together to cushion bumps so that you can remain comfortable and in control. Take advantage of the 250W motor which allows you to travel further, opening up opportunities for you to find new trails and cycle routes. E-bikes aren’t cheating, they just provide that extra push when you need it most!

Falcon Serene Electric Bike
Then, perfect for individuals who like to enjoy the journey perhaps in a more leisurely manner and take in their surroundings, we have the Falcon Serene Electric Bike with a supportive step through frame and a powerful electric motor that will help you to arrive as serene as when you set out (traffic not withstanding!)

Forme Buxton 2 Ebike
We can also offer the Forme Buxton 2, a step through hybrid Ebike. It has a 36v battery, and can go up to 40 miles on a charge. Designed with a high-rise front for an upright riding position, it also comes with a comfortably wide saddle that suits both men and women alike.

This is just a small selection of what you will find in store*. With over 60 bike choices available - see current lists below - there is sure to be the right bike for every member of the family.
Once you have an idea of what you are looking for, pop into Colour Supplies at Whitchurch, Oswestry or Wrexham and have a chat with our staff who will help to ensure you are choosing the perfect bike. They can also help advise on the all important safety equipment you need including Cycle Helmets and Puncture Repair Kits.
Don't forget to think about Hi-Vis vests too, for popping on over your clothing to keep you safe in the dark, low light conditions and bad weather, when other road users have less visibility.
