PUBLIC Mini Kid's Bike

Kids Balance Bike

Classic in shape, durable in design, this pedal-free push bike makes learning to ride a bike easy and fun.

PUBLIC Mini






$149.99

In European cities it's normal for many parents and kids to get around town on bikes. While biking with children is now becoming more common in US cities, the truth is that many city kids still don't grow up riding bikes like their cul-de-sac cousins. We designed our new PUBLIC Mini kids' balance bike to be the first bike for the next generation of urban citizens.



The new balance bike design is a smart way to get kids started on bikes, that's much more intuitive for little ones than the rattling training wheels we grew up with. "Less is more" is our design ethos, and by eliminating the pedals and chain, kids can use their natural instincts to balance with their feet and easily scoot around without fear of falling. Since we used standard bike components like a classic steel frame and comfy inflated tires, the PUBLIC Mini can zip around just as smoothly as a pedal bike does. Kids love them, they look great, and they're tons of fun.



Just like you'd expect on a PUBLIC bike, the PUBLIC Mini allows for a wide range of seat and handlebar height adjustments to grow with kids and share with friends starting from age 3.



All of our kids' bikes are shipped Ready to Ride. You'll receive a 99% assembled bike delivered to your door with simple instructions and the few tools needed to complete the finishing steps. And our 30 Day Love at First Ride Guarantee means your little one will get the bike they love, no matter what.

Public Bike Size Recommendations



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.



When in doubt, contact our customer service team via email at customerservice@publicbikes.com or phone at 1-888-450-0123. For children’s bikes, smaller bikes are always easier for beginners.



*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.
