Nope, daily checking of sites, was oos on Friday when I last looked
Looks very good for a bike with 6 speed shimano gears. I called the number on the Aldi site and it went through to Raleigh who say they built these bikes for Aldi. They also said a bike of this spec should cost anything from 120 to 170 quid so HOT!
Weighs 13.9kg which is more than my adult MTB!
thanks again wishihadadonkey, my girl will be very happy

​My boy's current 16" bike which this one would potentially replace weighs 5.6kg. He would need legs like steam engine pistons to pedal this up the hill from our place.

Stopping ships drifting from their moorings?

Serious, this is one heavy bike that will not be easy or pleasant for a child to ride. Do them a favour and buy a Islabike/Frog etc.

As happens frequently on HUKD you are confusing cost with value.

What's better?

A crude, heavy bike that is hard to ride and therefore doesn't get much use and that loses 80% of its value, say £60?

Or a well-designed bike that its rider loves to use and so rides more often, can go on proper rides with mum & dad etc. and might lose only 15% of its value, the same £60?

Appreciate not everybody can drop £3-400 on a "kids bike" but considering that the cost over the two years or so it'll be used (by one child anyway) is pretty much the same, having access to a much nicer bike which (in my experience) won't break or need adjustment as often, makes the cheaper bike very poor value in comparison.

In my opinion we do our kids a disservice buying them junk like this. Might sound snobbish but kids are more likely than most adults to actually use a bike and deserve something decent.
I just think the manufacturers are lazy, they could easily make bikes a hell of a lot lighter without increasing the cost, same as car manufacturers have had to do now buyers look at the mpg figures when choosing a model. If we just buy this stuff without questioning it, kids bikes will always be overly heavy which then allows niche manufacturers of lighter bikes to charge rip off prices because there is so little competition. Still looks decent for the money, but be aware if you are buying it for 6 or 7 year olds etc it really is going to be a struggle for them, I guess older kids will manage better.
13.9 KG! what are they using lead? too heavy! my cheap MTB from Halfords weighs 13kg tops.......
Please parents don't get your child this it could put them of biking for life!
How heavy were the grifters and choppers of the 70s/80s? Didn't stop kids riding them.
These are great bikes. I got one for my daughter from the Southend store last month when they were reduced to £39. They are not heavy and my daughter loves riding it. Shame they don't sell a 24" version as I need one for my son!
decathlon have a £100 kids bike similar spec that's 11kg
This was half price in the new Aldi store in Bidston. Store specific I'd imagine.
what ages will this be suitable for ?
Order it online if you can't get one in store, free delivery at the moment.
Took me Aldi but no bike for boys, only girls
