There are a variety of different bikes which can be suitable for a person with dwarfism, some are smaller versions of average bikes and can be bought from the usual places. However some are slightly more bespoke and can be made specific to a persons ‘needs’. 

 

Tiny Bikes 

These are small beginner bikes, and can be bought in a range of different colours. They have no pedals and therefore improve balance skills when riding. Once the skills of balance have improved, children can then switch to pedal bikes. They are a great starting point for learning to ride a bike.

Toy r UsHalfords and Decathlon

General bikes which when bought in a smaller size, can be suitable for people with dwarifsm. They can have stabilisers and handle (specifically for younger children) however both of these can be removed once cycling skills have progressed.

Frog Bikes and Isla Bikes

These bikes can be bought as balance bikes and also pedal bikes. It may be possible to go from being a beginner to a pedal bike rider, with the same model.

Curtis Bikes

Since the beginning in 1972, Curtis Bikes have specialised in hand-making nothing but off road competition bicycles.

Every frame’s tube set is chosen to suit the rider’s size, weight, riding style, and frame choice, which enables us to build the customer the perfect frame for the job.

When we say handmade we mean handmade; there is no fancy machinery in our workshop only a vice, hacksaw, files, a hand-operated tube bender and a whole heap of passion.

So if a perfectly fitting frame that handles like a dream is what you’re after then talk to the experts at Curtis Bikes and we will build it for you.

FEATURED: THE BRIAN CURTIS LEGACY PROJECT…

Brian Curtis wanted to apply his frame building skills to a noble cause before he hangs up his brazing goggles. Allow us to introduce our new bikes for children with dwarfism.
