Anybody any suggestions for a 650 wheeled road bike for a 10 year old lad?
Have looked at MODA, FELT but wondered if there are any others I should look at?
For Sale is a 2010 Giant Defy 3 Large (55cm) which has been upgraded.
This bike started out as a standard Defy 3 but has had the whole group set replaced and upgraded to something more usable.
The bike is 2010 but has been used on and off for maybe a year in total. A persistent injury has stopped me from really using the bike that much. Due to age and mainly being moved around the house there are a few marks on the frame and forks. The top tube does have a mark on it and so do the forks (see pictures). But overall the bike is in good condition and looks great.
Genesis's Croix De Fer hardly needs an introduction. You most likely already know that it's a do-it-all bike, and that its credentials were firmly established in 2010 when Vin Cox got the Guinness World Record for riding it around the world faster than anyone had done before.
The Kinesis Racelite TK3 is a bike that's truly greater than the sum of its parts, a proper race bike for all conditions that's just as at home on the commute, the chaingang or trundling round the lanes.
Phrases like 'power bulged top tube' and 'tapered carbon monocoque fork' are normally seen in the marketing blurb of the latest handbuilt carbon superbike - not aluminium steeds designed for mudguards and 28mm tyre clearance. The Kinesis is a little different though.
