The magic of two-wheeled adventure is built straight into every component of the Owl 3 speed 20-inch kids bike. If your early-grade-school adventurer is ready for their first foray into the excitement of shifting, it starts with the Owl.
The internally geared Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub is activated by a buttery smooth Sturmey Archer trigger shifter. We built this bike around this drivetrain to take your explorer higher and further every time. The Owl 3 Speed’s shifting mechanism is encased in an aluminum shell inside the rear hub so it will shift smoothly with no maintenance for thousands of miles. Speed and acceleration are no problem with the 127mm alloy 3 piece cranks. Too fast too soon? The Owl stops on a dime thanks to the super-strong Tektro junior v-brakes.
Stock up on snacks. Your child will ride longer and faster on the Owl 3 Speed.
The Owl is the best fit for riders with an inseam measurement of 19-23″. A rider with a 21″ inseam will sit on the Owl with their bottom on the saddle, flat-footed on the ground with the seat at its lowest position. At that same saddle height, riders with 19” inseam will happily sit with only the balls of their feet on the ground. As long as a child has an inseam of 19”, their arms and torso are long enough so they can reach the handlebars comfortably.
