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.
Carrera Zelos LTD 14spd lightweight racer/road bike, great condition, small (51cm) size frame, £160
This lightweight road bike is made by Carrera, one of the biggest names in the business. It’s only had a little use, so the Shimano 2 x 7 gears and chain work perfectly, as do the powerful Tektro dual-pivot brakes. There’s plenty of rubber left on the 700 x 25c tyres too, which would make this bike a great way of getting fit, or a really quick commuter to work.
The bike is in very good condition and excellent working order having been fully serviced and checked by our professional mechanics using a 30-point checklist. Like all bikes sold in our Greenford workshop, it comes with a three-month warranty. Come over for a test ride at our workshop at 18 Queens Avenue, UB6 9BX, which is open Monday (8.15-3pm), Tuesday (11-5pm), Wednesday (11-5pm), Thursday (10-4pm), and Saturday (10-6pm).
Giant Rock medium mountain bike with 19in frame, front suspension, and 18spd Shimano gears, £140
This Giant Rock MTB has a lovely satin chrome finish to its 19in aluminium frame, and is in great condition. Not only is there plenty of tread left on the 26 x 1.95 Kenda tyres, but the drive train, with its Gripshift twistgrip twisters and Shimano front and rear derailleurs, works perfectly.
The 18 speeds of this Giant mean that it will handle any terrain with ease, whilst the suspension forks will always keep the ride smooth and comfortable, whether you’re on the road, in the park, or travelling the towpaths.
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.
