We're trying to decide whether to get our 6yoDD a 20" bike for Christmas or wait until her 7th bday in the spring.

We have dd's seat on her 20" all the way down and she can touch her toes on the ground while sitting on the seat. That is how you tell if the fit of the bike is correct for a child, they should be able to touch the ground with their feet while sitting on the seat, not so for an adult but for a child they should be able to. I suppose we could of just raised the seat on the 16" but she looks very big when she rides it now and she is an average sized child.

my 6 yr old is tall for his age and still fits great on 16in. the 20 in, was way to big still. Sits too high off the ground. i'd stick to a 16in, if he is still in the beginning stages of riding.
good luck!

We haven't gotten Tre a bike yet...at least since he was four. He never really rode it much but has expressed some interest this year. I have to look at what's out there

We got dd (6 in August) a 20" bike this summer (July). It was a bit big at first but now it fits her just fine. She is about 46" tall now.
