20 Inch Small 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.

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.

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.

No Coaster Brake

Guardian bikes never have coaster brakes. Period. New riders backpedal to keep their balance. If a bike has coaster brakes, this stops the bike, just when they were getting the hang of it. Our brakes stop faster, with much more control.

Great lightweight bike

my daughter LOVE this bike, it's lightweight and the color is also a good match the website, so we were happy about that. assembly was pretty quick, although i wish a 1 page printout came with it, and i didn't have to go and watch the videos, that was a pain (although i only needed to look at it for 1 part). My only real issues are i wish the tires were Mountain style then the thin road style, and the Saddle is very hard and not comfortable, so i'll be having to replace that soon too

Great bike for my daughter

It's been a few months since my daughter's gotten on her bike so thought I'd come back and leave a review. Very happy with our bike. I went with Guardian over other contenders for a couple reasons. (1) My daughter is quite tall for age six and this was the only brand where she could fit the 24" bike -- with other brands I'd have had to go with 20" which she would have quickly outgrown. (2) The braking system. Assembly was a little confusing (and I think the time required is understated a bit). But Guardian was easy to get a hold of and helped out. We got things sorted out quickly. Since then it's all been sunshine and rainbows. Kid loves the bike and it's great to see her happy, confident, and fluent on the bike. Would recommend to others.
