LittleBig Bikes is a kids bike company, based in Ireland, that designs and builds great balance bikes. We use innovative design and quality manufacturing to balance value, function, aesthetics and sustainability. Our aims are to:
Our Founder - Simon Evans
Simon Evans – round the World cyclist – founded LittleBig in Ireland in 2014.
Simon was one half of Revolution Cycle, the two-person team who, in 2010, completed the first Irish circumnavigation of the globe by bicycle. This epic adventure covered 30,000km through some of the highest, driest, remotest, wettest, and hottest places on earth. It affirmed Simon’s love not only for bicycles, but for the freedom they afford for travel, exploration, fitness and mental health.
Simon is also an engineer. His talent for creating elegant, real-world solutions through careful design and detailing led to early roles as a structural consultant. Simon helped develop ultra modern edifices and restore ancient historic buildings. These experiences in sustainable design, allied with his wealth of bicycle knowledge, propelled him to design and develop the LittleBig adaptable balance bike.
Long lasting parts and materials
The LittleBig uses a rust proof aluminium frame that is fitted with strong, well built parts that will last and work effectively for longer than normal.
We have selected high quality components like those you would find on an adult’s bike. In the unlikely event that you should break a part (accidents do happen) then these can be repaired or replaced at your local bike shop.
We’ve known some LittleBig bikes that have been passed down to 4 different kids and still going!
Minimising and reducing packaging
When assembling the LittleBig bikes here in Ireland, we re-use as much of the cardboard and plastics as possible. We are constantly looking for ways to give a second life to our packaging.
For example the frame, wheel and saddle cartons are used by others for moving home, office storage 0r no dig gardening. When we received a few cracked timber pallets they were re-made into the frame of a greenhouse for growing veggies!
One child - One bike
LittleBig’s unique 3-in-1 design means it adapts with your growing child. There is no need to switch bikes to change bike size. No more excess discards.
