For my friends daughter, she's 8 and sizing guides are suggesting a 24" wheel size.
Off-hand her last bike was an islabike cnoc 16 but was hardly ever used (she just wasn't into cycling), so the expense of a Beinn 24 seems unjustified to my friend (the 16's is being handed down to her brother, but even so...).
Only Islabike or Frog bikes seemingly offer a nice light weight rigid option, the Carrera Luna HT seem about to be the best bet price wise otherwise (Apollo tropic 'cruiser' is 15.4Kg!).
Have I missed any decent bargains?
I am of the opinion he will be better of in the long run with a Islabike, but he's struggling with this, after the 16 was left unused.
PS: This will be a 'paths' only bike, so suspension isn't really needed.
