Islabikes are widely rated as the best children's bikes money can buy. A fantastic first bike for age 5+, our daughter learnt to ride amazingly easily on this, without stabilisers straight from a balance bike, she was off. It is designed for multitasking both on the road and 'for the wildest off road exploring'. It fits approx min height 112cm, min inside leg 47cm, max inside leg 57cm. RRP £389.99. Colour is a metallic hot pink. The blurb: Here are some of the design factors that make Islabikes different:Lightweight aluminium frames:Islabikes frames are made with tough, yet lightweight aluminium, producing an outstanding strength to weight ratio. It’s much easier to learn to ride on a lightweight bike but the advantages extend to riders of all ages.Bigger wheels:Our aim is to get children comfortably riding bikes with the biggest wheels possible. This makes for a smoother, more stable ride, helping to build enjoyment and confidence in riders of all ages. Bigger wheels also deliver more forward motion with each turn of the pedal. No children’s bike manufacturer produces bikes with bigger wheels at each growth stage than Islabikes.Bespoke componentry:We are the only children’s bike company to produce a full range of bespoke components. These are proportionately correct for the size of the intended rider. Islabikes components include cranks, brake levers, chain-guards, handlebar grips, pedals and more, each delivering a unique advantage. Our brake levers for example are designed for smaller hands, putting powerful breaking within easy reach.Frame geometry:Factors like riding position and weight distribution play an important role in comfortable and enjoyable cycling. Painstaking work has gone into designing frames that address the unique needs of children at each growth stage to maximise comfort and enjoyment.Optimised Q-factor:Islabikes were the first company to work on narrowing Q-factor in children’s bikes. This is about the horizontal distance between the crank arms. Optimising the distance between pedals for different sized riders helps to make pedalling more efficient.Great condition - all running gear is good and wheels are true. A few scratches, bumps and scrapes as per the photos. Collection only please from London Deptford SE8 - Zone 2. Many thanks and happy bidding. Simon and Anna.
