16sp very wide ratio gears with reach adjustable Shimano STI levers

You will have noticed that single chainrings and wide ratio blocks have been selected for most of our bikes. We have observed that children struggle to understand how to use multiple chainrings effectively, and usually end up using only one ring. The arrival on the market of very wide ratio cassettes has allowed us to specify a single ring and still provide an appropriate range of gears, giving your child something they will find easier to operate with the added advantage of being lighter and lower maintenance.

Compact 34 – 46t chainset with proportional cranks

Short reach brake levers with top mount supplementary levers for safe stopping with small hands

Proportional anatomic dropped handlebars, narrower with shallow drop and short reach

The dropped handlebars fitted to most kids road bikes are narrower than an adult handlebar but the drop section is the same. This means the forward throw is too great and the bottom section out of reach. It also makes it very difficult to reach the brake levers. So the child ends up holding on to the closest top section of the handlebar only (they might as well have a straight handlebar). Our exclusive handlebars have a very short forward throw and a very shallow drop, making all three positions usable and the brake levers easier to reach.
