If you are sick of heavy, chunky, 'MTB' style kids bike that put your child off riding before they've ventured beyond the garden, then the Rapide RL24 is the bike for you (or, rather, your kid). Build up around a lightweight aluminium frame and robust Cr-Mo fork, the RL-24 sports 24 inch wheel bikes that a big enough to keep up with you on the road, but small enough to fit children in the 7-10 age range (the 26 inch version will go right up to small adults and young teenagers), your kid will instantly love riding this great bike. The cyclo-cross style Kenda tyres are quick enough for tarmac riding, but will allow for grassy detours, towpath adventures and the ubiquitous 'I wonder what its like to ride over there' moments that every child has. The Rapide RL24 comes with a 1x7 gear set up which is simple enough to avoid front mech crossover issues (which even adults fall foul of) while providing a wide 12-32 gear range to make slopes doable and mum & dad catchable. The dedicated integrated shifter means that they will never have to take their hands off the proper drop bars which, by the way, will make them feel every bit the pro-rider on their mini race machine. Taking into account children's propensity for getting themselves into trouble, Rapide have fitted the RL24 with mini V-brakes for extra stopping power when they have failed to see that curb/ ditch/ house until the last second. Get your kid a Rapide RL24 and they'll soon fall in love with cycling just as much as you have.
