Wheel size is the way that bike manufacturers classify their kid bike sizes, but it’s NOT the only factor! It’s not even the most important factor! Wheel size gives you a very general idea of the size of a bike, but bike frame size and seat height range can vary drastically from one bike to another within the same wheel size.

This infographic offers tips for how to choose the right size bike for a child. The content is arranged in clear steps: measuring, choosing a wheel size, choosing seat height based on riding ability, and adjusting for current fit and future growth. The content of this infographic is a little bit dense in places, but all the information is informative and easy to understand. Converting paragraphs to brief sentences and phrases could improve the readability, though. The visual elements of this design clearly communicate the main subject, and the kid-friendly illustration style works well with the subject matter. The biggest issue with the design is in the text treatment: small-scale white text on colored backgrounds can be difficult to read. Overall, the illustration style and cheerful color palette complement the information, but a less-is-more content style would make it even more effective. We'd give this a C.
