Hi all,

Just wondered if any of you would recommend a 15 inch frame/26’ wheel size bike for my 11 year old son. I’ve seen that a small or XS mens mountain bike would be an ideal size for him. Budget of around £250. Didn’t really want a second hand one for Xmas. Any ideas?

Cheers, Jamie

    You don't want to be buying 26 if you can avoid as it will always limit any upgrades/parts with all later bikes (except budget) being in 27.5 or 29 inch wheels

    If you could also stretch you budget a little a few choices that could be viable

    Eleven Vortex 3.0 29er Hardtail Mountain Bike Black/Grey/Red (paulscycles.co.uk)

    Wizard X-Country 3.5 Mountain Bike | Merlin Cycles

    (Chain cycle had a fuji at your budget that would have been my first pointer but now out of stock)
