For this list of bikes for girls, we’re presenting the bikes in five size categories, two bikes per size. We also narrowed it down to bikes that ship free with Amazon Prime membership or offer free shipping.

As for the bikes, most of them require some assembly and Amazon does offer to provide professional assembly for around $80.
Don’t Forget the Helmet
Of course, it’s crucial that any rider wears the proper safety gear, and that starts with a bike helmet. There are a wide array of helmets available, so take a look at all the bike helmet offerings on Amazon.
Bikes for Girls: What’s the Right Size?
Bikes sizes are, generally, grouped by age. More specifically, when you’re talking about the size of a bike for kids, you’re talking about the wheel size. When it comes to getting the correct size for a girl’s road bike or a girl’s mountain bike, the gender thing really isn’t an issue. Whatever the gender of the human, this is a good sizing guideline to follow (thanks SchwinnBikes.com).
Wheel size: 12”
Wheel size: 16”
Wheel size: 18”
Wheel size: 20”
Wheel size: 24”
