- Impossible budget for mates sons bike?
As the resident bike consultant in the village, just had a text from a good mate after a bike for his son, for Christmas!Posted 4 years ago
Checked eBay for Pinnacles and Paul’s cycles.
Obviously will tell him he has no chance, but if anyone has any ideas…
He’s 13yrs old and not tall for his age. (The son)dirtyriderMember
you are a cyclist
they are not
get a BMX? 13? all about image aint it,
a 150 quid mtb will be shit, a £150 bmx will be alright
this is just a little over budgetPosted 4 years agoebygommMember
Decathlon? Just over budget, comes in extra smallPosted 4 years ago
I have one of these for sale for £100:
24″ wheels so it depends how short a 13 year old he is.
I also have one if these for sale (26″ wheels) for £150
My (slightly taller than average) 13 year old has been riding it for a while and it is a decent fit.

I sold my daughters Giant Rincon for less than that and it wasn’t a vast amount more new. Perfectly capable bike in near new condidtion,even the fork was OK. My sons Mongoose Rockadile went for less than £100. It was bit more tatty but still a trail centre capable bike
Loads of options here

Thanks eskay, Fynn loves his new bike. It is in great condition as promised. TBH I really liked that bike. I will look at Commencal for myself when funds allow a xc hard tail.
Anyway thanks again.
Hi jkomo. I have been away over Christmas and have only just checked this thread. I am really glad he was pleased with the bike. I hope he has many happy hours riding ahead of him on it.Posted 4 years ago
Hi wrecker, only just noticed your post on this thread. Possibly – were you in Mangotsfied?
My son decided shortly after buying it that he was a road/track cyclist and did not like mountain biking so it sat in the garage doing nothing.
I wanted to hold onto it as it was a nice bike but he needed some funds to pay for a winter hack bike.Posted 4 years ago
