anyone got a picture of an Islabike Cnoc 14 with a Beinn 20 (Small)?
Sorry do not have a pic.
What I can tell you is that Mr Claus brought a Cnoc and a Bein Large a couple of Christmases ago. NO2 off offspring rode the Cnoc twice and wanted gears like his brother.
I got Bein small two weeks later and he never looked back. The only major down side was “what gear are you in? I am in gear 4″repeating every minute or so.
Hope this helps a little.Posted 4 years agouphillcursingSubscriber
Forgot to mention said offspring No2 was right at the bottom end of the sizing for the Bien 20 small and not that confident at the time.Posted 4 years ago
There being the reason I got the Cnoc.
Luckily the second hand value of Islabikes is sky high and I think I only lost $20 on the thing.
I don’t have that pic (which surprised me!), but I could try and do you one tonight?
Our eldest went straight from Cnoc 14 to a small Beinn 20, with plenty of fun crossing back and forth between the two. If he’s properly outgrown a Cnoc then he should have no problem on the small Beinn 20Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
My two, Cnoc 14 & Beinn 20 small.
The Cnoc 14 feeds nicely into the Beinn 20 small.
My youngest is verging on small for his age, & has maxed out the adjustement on his Cnoc14. The Beinn 20 on min now fits him a treat. He’s certainly not finding it a struglle. Trouble is he’s got the makings of a BMX’er so loves blasting around standing up on the pedals on his Cnoc still. His Brothers just gone from the Beinn20 small to a Spesh Hotrock 24.
I’ll see if I can find a pic of both bikes die by side…Posted 4 years ago
tony – we had plenty of use out of the Cnoc 14 with the first one, and even more now that the youngest has moved on to it. The bigger wheels of the 16 might have been better at times, but it’s never felt like a deal breaker. Easily mitigated with some fatter tyres 🙂
Here’s no 1 still enjoying the Cnoc14 long after he was big enough for his Beinn 20 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Thanks folks, that’s reassured me.
No, won’t be selling the Cnoc, it’ll be stored in the loft for a couple of years unil his little brother is ready for it.
I imagine there might be a little bit of riding both for a while, but I doubt it as he’s deperate for bigger wheels to cope with the roots in the local singletrack (he has the making of a 29er rider…), and for gears to go faster. He is going to dissapointed he’s not getting bouncy forks like mine. I have actually bought a Kona Shred20 with forks and disc brakes from ebay, but its WAY too big for him.Posted 4 years agoigmSubscriber
Elder son went from Cnoc14 to Beinn20 small.
Was a little large for him but an in line BMX seat post and a 40mm stem sorted it. At the time his legs were longer than his body – currently it seems the other way round.
Edit: nice DH stem that I might use sometime an a shim for both the steerer tubs and the bars.Posted 4 years agohughjayteensMember
Here’s a Beinn 20 small next to a Cnoc 16 (and my Epic) which should give you some idea – the 20 is quite a lot bigger than the 16 – my son has the 16 saddle all the way up and looks quite big on the bike, but needs the saddle fully down on the 20 and struggles a little with it (he’s a tall 5 year old).Posted 4 years ago
