Got this from Development Cycle few months ago now. Gave it a good old t-cut and transferred my new STX groupset onto it (I think that is sufficient for a (currently) 6 year old. It still has a few nice features like the Barracuda branded bars/saddle/seatpost. Even though it is teeny, it is too big for him (He is 4f 2”)so it will have to be another Isla Bike for the moment. He wanted 2 bottle holders “like daddy” before you say anything. I still have a few bolts and screws that I will get anodised turquoise and a DX/Wolber upgrade wheelset that is waiting to go on and that is about it.

Cheers...Nick

Very nice indeed. I wondered where it had gone - I only realised my son needed a new bike a couple of days after this sold.

I can't believe you removed the original dealer sticker American Bicycles in MD USA. Did it come with those pedeals or have you changed them?

Was mine before I sold it to development, good to see it's gone to a good home

I know, I'm sorry, but it was peeling a little bit and I couldn't help myself :oops:

Got some replacements from Evilbay

As you can see, he has a little while before he grows into it, but I see it as an investment :D
