Not sure I really get what I was saying about the snobbery now either!! End of a tough day at work.
I wasn't knocking buying Islabikes for your kids, they are obviously very good, and light! It was about the second hand value of them. I know something is only worth what people will pay, but no second hand bike is worth 95% of the retail value, especially used and abused buy children.
Anyway sorry if I offended any one, I didn't mean to.
