If they are adjustable to the right height then yes, stabilisers will fit easily as the axle thread sticks out about an inch to accommodate the rear stunt pegs - which will need removing to fit the stabilisers but easily unscrew.

Absolutely.

We fitted the Halfords, one size fits all stabilisers. They are very strong, easy to fit to this bike and work well.

Yes - the plate does come off. In fact it comes off too easily and is annoying having to press it back in place every time - so we leave it off now. The children didn't actually like it any way!

May be a bit on the small side, you're probably better off looking at a bike with 18" wheels.

I think it might be too small. My son is 7 (just) but small and has just learned to ride a bike so we wanted something that would not put him off. I think it will only last him the year.

It depends how tall he is. My middle son is 6 and is as tall as his 8 yr old friends. The bike is fine for him but he would not have much time on it, before growing out I should imagine

There is a height guide in the stores to aid your decisions, I would possibly look for something with 18-20 inch wheels if tall for age

You will need to get your local store to check the bike for you as it is very hard to determine the ideal size without a test fit.

This bike has lots of stud to attach stabilisers.

You would need the correct size stabilisers or ones that are adjustable .

The height from floor to rear wheel axel is 200mm.

Not sure exactly but it is on the heavy side for a 6 year old.

But the seat can be set low so the child's feet can make with the floor ok.

More suited for 7-8 year old on the larger size.
