When Performance Bikes announced their “Kids Bike In A Box” promotion last year, I thought it was a great idea. I still do.
It’s a simple idea: you pick a bike by consulting a sizing chart, order the bike, and a fully assembled bike in a box shows up on your doorstep. You just need to adjust and tighten the handlebars and the bike is good to go on Christmas morning.
In addition to child bikes from Schwinn, GT, Diamondback, Fuji and Skuut, Performance carries private label bikes: 12″ Boost & Chickadee for toddlers and pre-schoolers; 16″ Thrasher & Sparrow for ages 3-6; 20″ Downforce & Piper singlespeed with coaster brake; 20″ Burnout & Starling is geared with seven speeds; and the Holeshot & Raven finish out the line with 24″ tires and 21 speeds. Performance also has trikes and balance bikes for small children.
