What should I do if my child is reaching too far for the handlebars?

You may find that your child is on the right size bike for their inside leg, however their arms are not quite long enough to comfortably reach the handlebars.

If this is the case, you can slide the saddle forwards along the rails (see manual).
You can also flip the stem over which changes the angle, and this bring the handlebars slightly closer.
Thirdly, your local bike store would be able to supply you with a standard shorter stem for your child to use until their arms are a bit longer.
