24 Inch Bikes
Full Disclosure: We are mountain bikers and our goal is to get our kids riding singletrack and perhaps the bike park with us. By the time we get to 24 inch bikes we are looking for suspension to get the most out of our days on the trails with the kids. But, for jaunts around the neighborhood, longer paved rides and trips to school, here are the 24 inch fully rigid bikes of choice.
One of the lightest bikes for the 7-11 crowd that has gearing, the Woom 5 is an amazing bike. 8 Spd Sram Gripshift with 11-32 cassette and 32 tooth front chain ring, you get 1.5 inch kenda small block tires. Kickstand and bell installed it comes in four color options.

Prevelo Alpha 4
Following the trend, Prevelo's 24 inch bike is a perfect build for 7-11 year olds. Trigger shift 8 spd 11-34 cassette with a 32 tooth front chain ring, you also get 1.5 inch kenda small block tires. This bike also uses 1 1/8 headset so you can play around with spare stems and bars laying around the garage or throw on a suspension fork if you are so inclined (we know we are)!
