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?

 

Dawes Sapphire 24"

The Sapphire has a low step frame making it perfect for little people to jump on and off safely and easily. The Sapphire offers a strong comfortable ride and with it's reliable 18 speed Shimano gears, easy to use V-brakes and carefully thought our components, it also offers great value for money. 


Giant ARX 24"

WHY SHOULD LIGHTWEIGHT PERFORMANCE BE LIMITED TO ADULT BIKES? THIS SLEEK LITTLE ALUMINUM FLYER IS THE LIGHTEST IN ITS CATEGORY, AND IT'S DESIGNED WITH STABLE GEOMETRY THAT MAKES IT EASY FOR YOUNG RIDERS TO GET GOING.

Most youth bikes are constructed with heavier frames and materials, but we designed the all-new ARX to be lighter, quicker, and more fun for young riders. Fact is, smaller riders can benefit even more from a lighter bike. With its ALUXX aluminum frame and fork, ARX is the lightest bike in its category-which makes it more fun to ride. The frame features a lower bottom bracket for a lower center of gravity and added stability. It comes in three different wheel size choices for different heights, and has versatile tyres that can handle rough roads, paths and even some dirt. The frame is fitted with lightweight components that are sized specifically for young riders, including cranksets and cockpit components perfectly sized for various wheel options (16, 20 or 24).
