Sprout V 16
Sprout V Model Size Guide
Find Your Size
A bike that fits properly is more fun to ride. The guides below offer size suggestion based on height in inches. If you have measuring tape, you may also determine your size by measuring your leg length plus one inch, which is your stand over measurement. For all bikes, we recommend at least 1 inch of space between you and the top tube of the bike. For children’s bikes, smaller bikes are always easier for beginners.
|PUBLIC Sprout V 16", V 20"|
|Frame Size||Rider Age||Effective TT||Saddle Adjustment|
|Small/Medium (16") - 240mm||4-8||402mm||20"-26"|
|Medium/Large (20") - 300mm||7-10||450mm||23"-29"|
*Please note: some riders may be a little outside of these height range recommendations but prefer the feel of a larger or smaller bike. Stand over height measurement is not as important as how the bike geometry feels while it is being ridden.
The PUBLIC Sprout is our incredibly fun bike for city kids ready to hit the road on their first big kid's bike. Just like our best-selling PUBLIC V city bike, the Sprout V 16 features a classic diamond frame design with a relaxed, upright riding position.
Parents love the simple, stylish, durable design, with no cables to get tangled, and real quality bike parts that are safer and longer-lasting that anything you'll find in the toy store. We designed these bikes with our own kids in mind, with dependable construction to last through lots of rough and tumble and hand-me-downs. Naturally, we included all the great features of grown-up PUBLIC bikes, like the matching fenders and chainguard, and comfortable brown vinyl seat and grips. The single-speed rust-resistant chain and quality coaster brake are the simplest to learn, don't need much maintenance, and make stopping just as fun as going.
For kids who haven't already learned on a balance bike, we recommend teaching balancing first by leaving the pedals off and the seat low. Then after balance is mastered, add the pedals and raise the seat to start riding with confidence. But we also include optional training wheels with the 16" size, for learning the old-fashioned way.
You'll receive a partially assembled bike delivered to your door with simple instructions and tools to complete the finishing steps. And our "Love at First Ride" Guarantee means your little one will get the bike they love, no matter what.
