Its time for my daughter to get a new bike. She is 5 at the weekend and i think the little bike she has now is hindering her.
I would like something like this but without the front suspension. http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_729025_langId_-1_categoryId_165630
I have looked at and discounted the islabikes range due to cost and having gears.
Any ideas?Posted 7 years agoz1ppyMember

Not all of them have gears, my m8 got his girl the CNOC 16 even though she ‘should’ have had the Beinn. Also the price might be high to start with but they command a premium 2nd hand, so you’ll get most of the your money back long term.Posted 7 years agorustlerMember
There was a second hand Islabikes Beinn 20 small, on here at the weekend/last week. Keep it two years & you’d get 90% of that back on Ebay. 😕Posted 7 years ago
Half the weight of some of the stuff we looked at in our LBS. Whatever you buy, if it comes with silly knobbly tyres bin them for some slicks/semi-slicks, makes it easier for them. That Carerra looks good, better if it didnt have the suspension fork. Totally unnecessary on a childs bike. 🙄
My eldest is 5. Just got him a s/h Beinn 20 small from STW. He absoluteley loves it. I’d rather get shot of some of my kit to buy an Isla, than have him riding something that weighs as much as he does.
