Gear for the school year

Back to cool

The start of school shouldn't mean the end of fun. As you're outfitting your little ripper with new kicks, a backpack, and all the markers and notebooks to fill it with, remember to stock up on the stuff that will keep them smiling outside of the classroom too.

Not sure about the size or style bike your kid should be riding? We've created a simple guide to help you make their early riding experiences as memorable as yours. 

SEE THE GUIDE 



A bike is an investment in your child's future, not a toy. While the prices at big box stores may seem enticing, these bikes are often poorly designed, not assembled by a certified mechanic, and unlikely to retain resale value or remain functional for a younger sibling.

Trek Kids' bikes are engineered and crafted by people who care about bikes and their riders. At The Broken Spoke we offer a Kids' Buy Up Program. (See Below)

SEE KID'S BIKES



 Lights on, every ride

Outfitting your kid's bike with lights designed for daytime visibility is the single best way to help them stand out to motorists.

Flare R, for instance, is a tail light that can be seen from over a mile away—even during daylight hours. If you purchase only one safety accessory in addition to your child's helmet, make it a daytime-visible light.  
 



The Broken Spoke's Buy-Up Program
The initial children's bike, purchased from The Broken Spoke, can be traded in for a maximum of 50% of original purchase price and put towards the purchase of the next children's bike; continuing through the first adult bike.
*Adult bike is described as 26-inch wheel bike.
*Actual trade in value to be assessed upon trade in date of child's bike.
