Girls 20" (wheel) bikes?
When my dad was looking for a bike or my little sis he also spent a lot f time looking around. He ended up getting the older luna due its weight and components, it has a slightly better spec than the newer one though. It was a great bike for her to be flying around on and she even managed to get round a few trail centres with it aswell, so no bother there.Posted 6 years ago
Now that she has moved on to a bigger bike he is wanting to get rid of it, you can let me know if you are interested and I can let him know when I see him next.binnersSubscriber
When I saw the title here, i was planning to come on and recommend the Carrera. My 7 year old has one and absolutely loves it. Its a ‘proper’ bike. I’m sorry, but that Raleigh looks a bit Mickey Mouse. The Luna is a really decent spec for the money (SRAM drivecahin, Suntour SR forks which actually work!). The frame is nice and low. Doesn’t weigh a ton. That Raleigh just doesn’t look in the same league. I reckon it’d weigh about the same as a car.
I paid full price for hers and thought it was good value at that price. Now they’re seriously reduced, I’d say its a no-brainer. GO for the CarreraPosted 6 years agobillybouldersMember
My daughter turned 7 this week and has her heart set on a little bike. I know Islabikes are supposed to be the best out there but it’s a little more complicated. Me and her mum are seperated and are going to pay half each, her mum (definite non-rider!) will only put in £75-00 and sadly theres just no way I could make up the difference to get her an Islabike – I’ve been around local shops and we’ve managed to narrow it down to either:Posted 6 years ago
This one (my preference-even though it is Halfrauds!)
She’s tried, and likes, both. It’s a long shot I know but anyone had any experience of either? Or suggest anything else? I know I should spend more – I ride a Ragley Ti so I’m fully aware of how much bikes can cost! Hopefully in a year or two when she needs a bigger bike I’ll have a bit more cash and we’ll get a better one then.takisawa2Subscriber
The Carrera without a doubt. That Raleigh looks awful. I couldnt believe how crap Raleigh had become when I looked at their kids range in a LBS.
There’s a Halfrauds 2min down the road from us. I’ll have a stroll down lunchtime & have a look “in the flesh” & report back… 🙂Posted 6 years agobillybouldersMember
Thanks all. It was while she was out with her mum that she saw the raleigh, I agree the luna is a much better bike, and I managed to persuade them thats the one to go for – just finished putting it together and it’s being test ridden round the garden now!
Thanks again for your replies – it was your recommendations that helped me sway them toward the better bike 😀Posted 6 years ago
