Help! Girls 16" bike – Good but on a budget!
My lad has been riding the 16″ Carrera Blast (boys Luna I think) for the last year and it’s been great. I can highly recommend it. It’s deff on the list for the move up to 20″.
The Jamis kids Bikes at Evans look pretty good, Is there anything at Decathlon? They’re usually pretty cheap.Posted 4 years ago
Advice from home is that I need something more girly!
Looks like a cracking bike and good price.Posted 4 years ago
Upcoming 4th birthday so new bike on the cards!
I know Isla is the gold standard but budget dissmisses them.
Thinking about a Ridgeback melody, Carrera Luna, Saracen Bella….anything else?
I feel anti coaster brakes as I want her to learn real brakes and she is OK on her 12 with real brakes already.
Suggestions would be great!Posted 4 years agocyclistmMember
I really rate the Honey (14″ version of the Melody) we got for my little one. So far faultless. Strong enough that I can ride it but not too heavy.
That said, the IslaBikes do seem to hold their value if you look after them.
Hargroves had the Honey/Melody on sale the other week, worth a look??Posted 4 years agoj40ajaMember
My 8 year old daughter has a Dawes Blowfish which seems a good bike (brakes are rubbish though and not great levers for small hands) and she’s now needing a bigger bike and when my son is old enough he’l learn to ride on it.Posted 4 years ago
If I were buying a kids bike again I’d look more closely at the kit fitted as things like poor brakes can affect confidence when they start to get faster or tackle hills etc.
