Hi all,

There was a childs road bike in Readers Bikes recently, and i wonder if anyone has anything similar. This is for my daughter who is 6 years old - going on 28!!!! Any condition will be considered. I think that these are available new but, as per the other poster, i would like hers done like one of my bikes - the Rapide springs to mind.

I think this is a harder quest than i originally thought!!!

Thanks all,

Richard

It is indeed a hard quest. Islabikes are well thought out, and better than most small replicas. They quite often come up on the CTC forum (http://forum.ctc.org.uk); indeed there was one on there a couple of days ago.
Good luck!
Nick
