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.

Awesome for 6 & 7 Year old girls

I had a some doubt using the sizer and it recommending I get a 24” for my two 6-7 year old girls. They are both right around 59-60” but it was spot on. We’ve been out riding and they love the bikes. Easy to handle and only having to worry about a single brake makes me worry less. Easily 8+ mile regular outings. Thanks for building a great bike.

Excellent. This is my 2nd

Excellent. This is my 2nd Guardian purchase, one for each granddaughter. Sizing software, brakes safety features, design of bikes, and ease of assembly are all Hughes pluses compared to competing brands.

New Bike

We decided to exchange our bike with you to get the model WITH gears - my interaction with your company was flawless. The bike is a Christmas gift for our 6 year old daughter - based on how the return was handles, I expect the bike will be as good as the service. Thanks you.

24" bike for 6th birthday

Delivery Delivery was on time and the bike was well packaged. Make sure you have a pair of pliers to remove the staples! The bike was delivered in flawless condition Building the bike, Guardian has put together an instruction video to walk us through the steps to build the new bike. Instructions were clear and building the bike was painless - 15-20 minutes tops. The bike Nice paint job, lightweight and extremely functional. Love the single brake and the grip shift. My son figured out the brake immediately and the bike stops quickly. He understands the grip shifter too, but was having issues changing gears. He is not confident to ride with a single hand yet, and I think he may not have the forearm strength to rotate the shifter. He'll grow into it. Thanks Guardian!
