Wanted - good bike for 5 year old (islabike or similar)

As per title.

My 5 yr old son has finally outgrown the heap of crap that halfords sold as a bike.

Ideally looking for an islabike cnoc 16 or anything similar which doesn't weigh more than him and has brakes that actually stop the bike! Don't need gears or suspension.

So if anyone has a nice wee bike gathering dust in the garage that their boy has outgrown please get in touch.... Budget of £120 ish (max £150 if I can convince wife it's worth it).

Cheers,

Andy

🙁 typical indeed.....

If you don't mind me asking..... How much did you sell for - seen one at £165 and another at £150 which is a bit steep for a £199 bike even with the low depreciation they're known for!

I got £120 for it which was what I had it advertised for! There's usually a few on flea bay, we kept looking there when we got Craig his Beinn 20 but they were selling for around £250 and for a £300 bike I thought that was bonkers but fine for when we come to sell ours! 😉

Can't recommend any other bikes basically because the Islabikes are just so good!!

Worth getting the Isla bike evan new if you can afford it. We got Jamie one for his Christmas and it is well worth the cash. Plus the resell value (as you have seen) means you will get most of it back.

Cheers Julz,

One of the guys in my MTB group has a cnoc 16 for sale at similar price so I'm going ahead with that.

They look like great wee bikes toffeefan, looking forward to getting it for him!
