Brand new Frog 62 bike (for 8-10yrs), £320
Frog have an excellent reputation for their children’s bikes, and it’s well deserved – their bikes are far lighter than most, and come with higher-quality equipment.
This green 62 is aimed at the 8-10 age group and is fitted with a child-friendly Shimano Altus 1×8 drive train and safe, effective Tektro V brakes. It also comes with two sets of tyres, (hybrid and off-road) for its 24″ wheels.
Apollo Charm junior MTB, with six speeds and full suspension, for ages 6-9, £50
This Charm with its front and back suspension is in very nice condition, and its Shimano derailleur and SRAM twistgrip gears work perfectly. The V-brakes offer effective braking power that’s easy to control, and the 20in wheels come with 20 x 1.95 knobbly tyres which are great for rides in the park and along the towpaths as well as on the road.
