Looking for a lightweight bike that's easy to handle? Our 16" aluminium 900 bike, designed for kids between 105 and 120 cm, will make it through all of their adventures, even the most intense ones! 
Thanks to its aluminium components, this bike only weighs 7.3kg when fully equipped! Chainguard, stand, and mudguards make it a versatile bike on which your child will feel safe. Available in 2 colours.

First use

Checking the saddle and handlebar height before the first ride

It's important to adjust the height of the saddle and handlebar to suit the child. The minimum insertion mark on the seat post and handlebar should never be visible for safety reasons (ensure this mark is never exceeded).  

To check the correct saddle height, when sitting on the saddle, both of the child's forefeet should be touching the ground.

Correctly adjusted, this should allow the child to easily get on and off their bike, and prevent their knees from rising too high when pedalling. 


Ensuring the brakes are correctly adjusted

Roll the 16" bike forwards by the handlebar. Press the brake lever. The rear wheel should stop moving following this action.


If you notice that the brake is not working correctly, please try the following: There is an adjustment wheel in front of the brake lever. You'll see a "+" and a "-". If you turn the wheel clockwise (towards the "+"), this will tighten the brake (= stronger braking). If you turn the adjustment wheel anti-clockwise (towards the "-"), that will loosen the brake (= weaker braking).


It's important to regularly check the brakes are correctly adjusted.


What pressure to inflate the 16" tyres to? 

The recommended pressure is always written on the side of each tyre. We recommend inflating the tyres to the pressure indicated on the tyre sidewall. This may vary between tyres. 

To check if the tyre is correctly inflated, simply squeeze it between your fingers: it should be firm while yielding a little under your fingers. 

Maintaining the 16" kids' bike

Cleaning and greasing the chain

You can use an all in one product to loosen, clean, lubricate and protect the chain on the child's bike (product available in Decathlon stores). It's a very practical product. To grease the chain, turn it using the pedal and spray along the length of the chain.  Allow to dry. 


Washing a children's bike

If you notice that the bike is dirty after a few rides (mud, rain, dust, etc.), give it a good clean.   If there is dust: simply use a dry cloth to clean it. If there is more persistent mud or other dirt, you can clean it with a bucket of hot water and a sponge (or wet cloth) with soap or bike shampoo. You can then clean the dirty parts of the bike (frame, fork, handlebar, wheels).   DID YOU KNOW?   Avoid spraying the bike with the hose: some components won't take it kindly!   When you've finished, simply wipe it dry with a cloth to prevent rust.Take the opportunity to check the tightness of the clamps and wheels: are they tight enough? If not, tighten them using a spanner.

Cleaning the grips on the bike

Wash using a wet cloth and soap or washing up liquid, then wipe with a dry cloth!

Storing the bike

We recommend storing the 16" bike in a dry place.  It's important to ensure that it stays dry.
