Kickbike Australia FAQ
Is a Kickbike easy to ride?
Yes, very. It’s easier to learn to ride a Kickbike than a push bike.
Are they suitable for children?
You betcha. Kids will master a Kickbike more easily than a regular bike. And kids will get thrown from an ordinary scooter when it hits a rock or stick, but the Kickbike just rolls right on over them. Mums love them!
Can I ride a Kickbike on the road?
Yes. A Kickbike can go anywhere an ordinary bicycle can.
Is a Kickbike better for men than women?
No, it’s equally awesome for either men and women. Women love them!
In Australia, do I have to wear a helmet like a bike rider?
Yes, the same rules apply.
How do I stop? Is there a brake?
Are they easy to assemble?
Is a Kickbike hard to maintain?
Not at all. In fact, it doesn’t have cogs, gears, pedals and a chain like a regular bike so there’s much less to go wrong. Suggested maintenance is outlined in the owner’s manual.
Where can I get my Kickbike repaired?
You should be pretty free of breakdowns, but any bike shop can easily fix any concerns.
Where can I buy spare parts?
We sell all the spare parts you need at Kickbike.com.au. You can also buy the front wheel and handlebar parts at a bike shop, but the rear wheels are less common in bike shops in Australia.
Can I try before I buy?
You can, most of the distributors on our site have a Kickbike that you can try first. If there is no-one in your area, then maybe you can be the first, and then you receive a finder’s fee for anyone that you introduce to us that goes on to buy. The other option is that we offer a money back guarantee. Try the Kickbike for 3 weeks, and then if it’s not for you, then put it back in the box. We then arrange pickup, and once we have it back we will refund your purchase price less the cost of its return freight. So, it’s like paying a hire fee to check it out.
Are there any how-to videos?
You bet. We have Kickbike instructional videos here that will show you everything you want to know, such as how to stop and start, how to turn, push and swap legs.
Do you have to be fit to ride a Kickbike?
Not at all. Just start at your own pace, and it will help you build your fitness.
Will a Kickbike help me get fit?
Absolutely. It’s a fantastic, low-impact form of exercise. It was developed to keep Nordic athletes in top nick during the summer. A Kickbike is especially good as a cross-trainer for runners.
I’m competitive. Is Kickbike just for fun or are there events I can enter?
You can race all right. In fact, you can even represent your country overseas at international meets.
