Hi

Trying to source a road bike for a ten year old. He's four and a half feet but growing fast.

Would need to be relatively modern and be posted to N Ireland.

Many thanks

Darren

Don't know what your budget is but you can get a brand new Dawes Sportif SL with 105/5700 groupset (Hidden Cable variant) in a 43 cm frame for £599 from Winstanley bikes..an absolute cracking bargain. Remove the bits when he outgrows the frame and you've still got some quality gear worth the purchase price alone.
And at 4ft 6 a 50cm frame will be probably too big for him to get his leg over it never mind even get close to standing on tippy toes astride it ;)

There's some discount bikes here including a 24 speed 47cm with 8x3 for £359 http://www.discountbicycles.co.uk/biz/p ... _white_blk
luck hunting

Thanks for the replies.

That Dawes Sportif looks great but i'm just not sure how much use this small road bike will get so i can't justify spending so much.

I really need a complete bike

Tel, can you please let me know he mesurements of that Specialised?
(if it's still available!)

Many thanks

Darren
