Good price for a Raleigh Performance kid's bike at £184.99 delivered. You'll simply need to turn the handlebars and put the pedals on, unlike some where you need to build the whole bike!

"The Raleigh Performance is a high-quality, lightweight children's bike that your child can have hours of fun on.

The aluminium frame has been designed specifically with a child in mind, with junior grips to provide a perfect fit for small hands. The stems and cranks are all adjustable to fit around your child.

A double chainguard ensures the chain stays in place and prevents trousers getting stuck or dirty and the specially designed 25T chainring makes pedalling easier for little legs.

The Tektro aluminium V-brakes are easy-to-use and provide safe braking, giving your child everything they need to enjoy cycling.

What makes the "Raleigh" bike so good?
Lightweight, most kids bikes are cheap steel,
We have this bike... It's as good as a frog or islia bike. Very lightweight.

Might as well buy this then

7.1kg is OK, but not amazing, I would expect the Raleigh to be lighter. As a comparison, the equivalent size Isla bike is 5.6kg albeit a lot more expensive.
Carrera cosmo or the Wiggins kids bike, much better, lighter options than this
children's bikes are such a rip off. There is so little material used and often they have very basic components, these are probably manufactured for no more than $10-15. I can't see anything on this bike that would justify a normal price of £250 and don't say the frame, even adult aluminium frames come out of Asian factories for about $20 and this is tiny and likely has no butted tubes or heat treatment. Yes its a lot lighter than steel but that still doesn't justify the price. The margin on children's bikes is so huge in comparison to adult bikes. The drivechain here is a sub $1 freewheel, sub $1 chain and a crankset probably less than $3. The brakes are basic V brakes probably less than $4 for the set. How could this bike ever justify £250? You could get an adult bike for that.
