Before you let your child hop on any new (or used) bicycle, check out the video above from Park Tool Company about how to perform a 5-minute safety check.
Unlike bicycles purchased from an independent bicycle dealer like Century Cycles, bicycles purchased in the big-box stores do not benefit from assembly by a professional bike mechanic. They frequently fail many (or all) of the tests shown in the video!
If you have any concerns about the safety of any bicycle of yours or your children, regardless of where it was purchased, please bring it to one of our stores for a free inspection! We'll check to see if it's safe, and provide a free estimate for any repairs or adjustments needed.
