Kids just want to have fun

Some of us at Ian Brown's Cycle Shop have had children ourselves and buying bikes for them as they have grown has enabled us to form the age old opinion of "You get what you pay for".

We also know that between three years and fourteen years it will mean several changes of shoe size as well as bicycle size. However a good bike, that is fitted well, will give hours and hours of pleasure and as important as a good pair of well fitting shoes. Too many children's' bikes are poorly made and poorly fitted making the cycling experience poor and not enjoyable to ride. We buy all our children's bikes from quality manufacturers Raleigh, Dawes, Giant, Cube, Frog and Specialized.

These bikes are either in stock / can be ordered for prompt delivery. They represent a very small selection of the bikes we sell so why not pop in to the shop to see the full range?

 

Cube Kid 20"

Kids get more adventurous as they get older - instead of being limited to the pavement, they may want to venture off-road. It's all part of growing up, but it means they'll need a bike that's up to the job. That's why we equipped the Kid 200 with a simple 7 gear transmission and rim brakes front and rear, so that those first forays away from smooth Tarmac are both fun and safe. It is, in essence, a real mountain bike in miniature - with details tailored for small hands and lots of enthusiasm. When the climb starts getting too steep, the bailout 34 tooth sprocket can help out. The brake levers are specially designed for small hands, giving smooth control of the V-brakes and pleny of power for safe early trail adventures. We even fitted a power modulator to the front brake, so that over-enthusiastic stopping won't result in an endo. It's the ideal bike for introducing kids to real off-road fun.
