    14" Boys Bike

    Banned
    Hi all, I'm looking for the cheapest 14" wheel bike for my 4 year old. Its his first bike after a tricycle, so it needs stabilisers. At least one brake and a bell. I would prefer to keep away from the theme bikes, i.e. 'bob the builder', 'power rangers', etc.

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    We had seen that deal, thanks though, I was just hoping to better it.. Also Argos don't tend to have any promotional codes. I might wait to see if they have the spend £50 get £5 voucher, £100 for £10 voucher deal that they have had for the last 2 years before xmas. We have a bit of time, its not needed until December.

    Cheers

    What I'd recommend I suspect won't be the cheapest, but are a well made, good solid bike, with no gimmicks:-

    ]Ridgeback MX24

    Seems to meet the age range. As I said, this is unlikely to be the cheapest, but will likely be the best built one you'll get for the money. I recently bought the smaller one (MX14) for my son's 3rd birthday. And they are very solid: alloy frame, alloy wheels, front and rear V-brakes; and feel like a well made, quality item. I guess for a slightly older child, this may well make sense, as the next size up from mine is probably of use for 2-3 years.

    No gimmicks on styling or equipment, just well made, solid, and classy looking.

    Apologies that it doesn't meet the criteria of the cheapest - but that may well be a false economy, if bits break or fall off - and this is what I'd heartily recommend as a bike for a young 'un that may well get lots of use.

    I must admit I generally think along the same lines as you fella, pay a little bit more now for better build and dont pay as much later. However he's extremely destructive (put it this way we cannot leave him with a pen unattended, else we get new drawings on the walls), I feel whichever bike we get him it will last a couple of years at most. Hopefully he will have got out of the destructive stage by then and we will pay out a bit more the next time. I'll keep your reccomendation for the next bike.
