My grandson is due for a new bike and since his current bike is an Islabike Beinn 20 L the natural progression was to get him the Islabike Beinn 24 BUT at £470 I had to think about alternatives.
There are 3 Islabikes amongst our grandchildren and although they are good bikes I feel they are...
My daughter has definitely grown out of her Isla. I have upgraded it with good tyres and wide riser bars but she needs an adult M size now.
It's well used but has loads of life in it. 8-speed, V brakes, 26" wheels with Tioga Trail Finder / Schwalbe Black Jack tyres, KCNC riser bar (I robbed...
Not managed to take any pix yet but you'll know what an Islabike looks like and how great they are for children. We have 2 daughters, each with 2 grandchildren and I have provided Islabikes for them, passing them down the chain as they grew - these two have just emerged as they have...
Mint condition metallic silver/grey Beinn 26" boys/girls bike. Ridden twice and got more dirt and wear, sitting in the garage. First water it has seen was when I washed it today. A few marks, but you will have to look hard to find them. Has original Islabikes bottle, mudguards which usually cost...
According to Bike Portland, some ignoramus legislators in the US have made coaster (backpedalling) brakes mandatory on children's bikes because their little hands can't use a rear handbrake to slow down. As usual, Prats in Power are making decisions based upon ignorance and assumptions.
My grandson said he never uses the lowest gear cause it's too hard to shift to it, so I took a look at it and the rest of the gears are OK. I tried loosening the cable tension a little but then the chain won't shift to the top cog.
This is the latest model of the bike
Thanks in advance for...
Title says it all! 26" Luath in TdF Yellow with Kenda Kontender road tyres and Schwalbe CX Pro cross tyres. 8 speed with a small scuff on the STI lever, and a chip on the drive side seat stay. Lovely working condition. £350 or sensible offers. Willing to deliver within 100miles of Durham

IslaBike Rothan balance bike, 10 years old so scratched but in full working order. £30. London E17 (Walthamstow) - Local collection only (unless you're reading this after about Wednesday in which case we will probably assume nobody local wants it ...)
