I made a video to show you step-by-step how to build a Paul’s Yard Boomer kids bike.
To build a balance bike, you need:
- Frame plus handlebar
- Allen key
Step 1 – Fixing the Handlebar
- Remove the plastic cover from the bottom end of the handlebar stem.
- Insert the stem into the mounting tube of the frame.
- Take note of the minimum insertion point as marked on the stem.
- Tighten the nut using your allen key.
Step 2 – Adjust the saddle
- Insert the saddle below the minimum insertion mark on the post.
- Tighten the quick release to fix the saddle post to the right position.
Step 3 – Adjust the front brake
- Loosen the brake cable tightening nut, squeeze the two brake shoes to 3 – 4 mm away from the rim of the front wheel. Pull the brake cable and tighten the nut.
- Lastly, remove both protective covers at the back of the wheels.

12″ Kids Bike
To build a 12″ Kids bike, you need:
- Balance bike
- Pedal crank and chain case
- Allen keys
- Soft mallet/hammer
- 4 Black protective covers
Step 1- Remove the back wheel
- Flip the bike over so that it stands on the handlebar and saddle.
- Remove the screw and washer on the rear brake support on the left side of the bike.
- Undo the nuts and washers on the rear wheel axle.
- Remove the rear wheel.
Step 2 – Insert pedal assembly
- Remove the plastic cap from the bottom of the seat tube under the frame. [Tip: Use a bread knife to lift up the cap]
- Remove bolt from the pedal assembly. [Tip: use a soft mallet or hammer to get it out]
- Insert the pedal assembly into the seat tube and tighten with the bolt.
- Only install the left pedal into the pedal axle and tighten the pedals securely.
Step 3 – Attach chain and rear wheel
- Place the chain on the larger front cog.
- Clip the chain cases together before installing the right pedal into the pedal axle and tighten the pedal securely.
- Then place the chain on the smaller rear wheel cog.
- Fit the rear wheel axle into the lower position mountings.
- Pull the rear wheel back to tighten the chain stack and fix the rear wheel washer and nut to secure the rear wheel to the frame.
- Tighten the screw on the rear brake support (found on the left hand side of the bike)
- Tighten the screw on the right rear casing.
