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 Team 24" Boys

The ideal halfway point between a kid's bike and a full-sized adult's mountain bike, the Kid 240 is the ideal choice for growing riders who want to keep up with their friends and parents. We gave it all the features of a full-sized bike because, quite rightly, that's what a keen young rider would expect. So there's a Suntour suspension fork, to improve comfort and control on rough surfaces. We fitted a Shimano 3x7 speed gear system - with Revo grip controls to make shifting easy for small hands - to bring every hill, up or down, within reach. The brakes are powerful and easy to control v-brakes with levers especially designed for young hands, and a power modulator on the front to help prevent an unscheduled dismount over the bars. And, of course, the heat-treated 6061 aluminium frame is built with the same attention to detail that we lavish on all our bikes. With a bike like this, there's nothing standing in the way of an off-road adventure.

Specialized Hotrock 24" Boys

Your little one might love to ride, but that doesn't mean they'll be doing Trans-Provence this summer. That's why we made our Hotrock 24 with plenty of gear range to tackle the neighbourhood hills, and enough front end travel to ride beginner's trails confidently.

Of course, it also features a lightweight, yet durable, A1 Premium Aluminium frame that's designed to take a hit while they find their legs on the pump track. Chatter and bumps, meanwhile, are handled by the coil-sprung SR Suntour fork's 50mm of travel.

Then there are a whole host of other components that are plenty tough enough to stand up to your little ripper, so you can rest assured that you'll be spending more time riding with your kid and less time waiting in line at the repair counter.

  • Tough, light, and durable, the A1 Premium Aluminium frame is built to stand up to years of tough riding.
  • SR Suntour suspension fork offers 50mm of coil-sprung travel that smooths out bumpy, rough terrain.
  • The 8-speed Shimano Tourney shifts smoothly and is tough enough for abuse.
