My little one if 5 going on 6 and the current bike bought as a present from some relative V cheap at Tesco's has bumpy tyres so they wobble around. The chain tension comes and goes (single speed) and well I need to get the stabilises of it as the pavements around here lean so much it's hard to ride on some parts :lol: But he's enjoyed the bike and likes it, but needs to move up a notch.
Plus he needs to ride properly!

So this model Beinn looks good. Probably the large by the spec for the sizes.

No1 Son is a happy owner of a Beinn 20. He got it at around 5 1/2 and is just about to move up to a 24" wheel Islabike...at which time the Beinn goes to No2 son.

It's a fantastic bike, well sorted (especially the brakes which are special for small hands) and LIIIIIIIGHT 8) The paint is tough as old boots too. It has been used daily for the school run for 3 years.

I'd thoroughly recommend it. We are on our 5th Islabike now having moved steadily up through the size range. Typically you only lose around £30-50 or so between buying and selling, which makes then cheaper in the long run than Tesco nasties - and your kids will love riding too!

Shame they don't distribute them to local stores so I could have a look and a feel/

Noticed they where getting 120 to 170 for pick up on ebay i.e. in past couple of weeks.
Also I see they do a "Buy Back Scheme"
