20 Inch Large Original Bike

So much to love in one bike

SureStop, Easy Reach Brakes

With SureStop, there’s only one brake lever, so your kid can’t get confused when things happen fast. Our patented brakes won’t ever flip the bike, and the lever is in just the right place for kid-size hands.

Ultra-lightweight Design

The Guardian Original is made of ultra-lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum. It’s exceptionally durable and extremely easy to control, making it both super safe and fun to ride.

Eye Candy Decals

Our bike colors and designs were developed by kids, for kids, to make our bikes the coolest bikes on the block. Our Guardian Originals use a matte black frame with glossy heat-transfer decals, for a popping contrast that will blow your kid’s mind.

Ultra-rigid Construction

Our Guardian Originals are built with a threadless headset for a much more secure assembly, especially over the long term. The bottom line? That headset—and the handlebars attached to it—won’t ever start to wiggle on your kid.

Kid-specific Geometry

Kids don’t just need smaller bikes. They need different bikes. With all the right proportions. They need smaller grips. They need less distance between the pedals. They need shorter crank arms and a low center of gravity. All Guardian bikes are designed for kids, from the ground up.

Low Step-over Height

The low top tube makes our bikes easy to get on, and a lot safer if your kid comes off their seat in a hurry.

Shimano Shifting

Our Shimano grip-shift components are simple and intuitive. Shift one way for higher gears, and the other way for lower. Easy, with plenty of range for even the toughest hills.

Double-walled Rims

Our double-walled rims can stand up to the extreme beating of a kids’ bike without bends, dents, or buckles. Even under the weight of a grown man. We tested it. A bunch of times.

Adjustable Seat

Every Guardian bike seat is both easily adjustable and easy to lock down. You can adjust the height to fit your kid as they grow up with the bike.

Smooth Welding

Toughness is built into every Guardian Original, but we smooth the roughness out—of the seams, that is. Our Original frame welds are reinforced for extra strength, then polished to perfection, without a single abrasive edge to mar that stunning paint job.

The Best

This is an awesome bike that is very well made. My daughter is smaller and she can handle it no problem. I would recommend this for any kid looking to get their first peddle bike.

Guardian 16 inch bike

My daughter just turned 4 years old and we were in search of a good skill and family activity — riding bikes. She had been doing a balance bike for a few weeks and got the hang of it and was asking for a big girl’s bike. I did a LOT of research on bikes and found Guardian bike’s. It is a HIGH quality bike that is 1. super safe, 2. super light, 3. the perfect size for her, and 4. one that she loves and is genuinely excited to call her own. At this age it’s important to get the correct bike and I couldn’t be happier. She literally started riding this 2 wheel bike in 10 minutes - and she’s now independent on it. absolutely amazing to watch. Do yourself a favor and just buy this bike and you and your kid will be happy!

Riding in minutes..

Purchased this bike for my 5 yr old. She had been riding a balance bike for about 8 months and was super exited when her big girl bike arrived. Upon unboxing her eyes were filled with excitement as the bike is a bright pink color. Assembly took less that 5 minutes just the handle bar and pedals needed to be installed. She was so exited that couldn't wait for me to pick up the box or put away the manual and tools. She just took off our drive way into the cul -de- sack and just like that she started pedaling . I was super surprise at what I was seeing but also super happy as my daughter gained a load of confidence at that moment. She was riding for the rest of the day, and even went on a neighborhood ride with dad that same week. Very happy with this purchase worth every penny.

Wonderful Experience!

I was looking for a new bike for my granddaughter and Guardian caught my eye with its attention to safety and great customer service. The bike came quickly, was easy to put together and my granddaughter loved it. I decided to get the training wheels later and they guided me with the helpful information on their website. I would definitely recommend Guardian for your next bike!
