How do I fit a wheel onto my bike?

Please see the first page of your owner’s manual for fitting your front wheel. Alternatively see the video guide here.

Why do you use larger wheels on your bikes?

One of the many unique features of an Islabike is that we always design bikes with the biggest wheels possible for its intended rider. For example, while a child of a certain size would fit bikes from other brands that use 16in wheels, that same rider might fit an Islabike that uses 20in wheels. But why is that such a benefit? And how do we achieve it? Find out the benefits of a bigger wheel here.

What is the maximum tyre width that will fit my Islabike?

You can find a range of tyre options that are available for your bike on the accessories page here.  To find out the maximum width of tyre that can fit your Islabike please contact our customer service team on +44 (0)800 008 6297 or info@islabikes.co.uk

Where can I get replacement or alternative tyres from?

Please see the accessories page of our website where you will find different tyre options. For more information on tyres or to order replacement standard tyres please call our customer service team on +44 (0)800 008 6297.

How do I pump up my tyres?

Our bikes come with a ‘Presta’ valve inner tube as standard – this is a valve designed to take the high pressures of a bicycle  and you will find it on all high quality cycles. For more information see our guide on understanding tyre pressures here.
