We have this bike showing the RRP, as we are not allowed to advertise our prices online, so PLEASE call us to find the best prices in the UK.

Our premium range of Academy children's bikes are something a bit special. Built around a lightweight, triple butted frame, we've carefully selected components that are perfectly in proportion with the intended rider for this 26? wheel, 8 speed machine. Why confuse life with too many gear ratios, when most riders stick to only a handful? We've stuck by this principle across our Academy range as when it comes to gears on a kids bike, quite often less is more! Perfectly proportioned 152mm crank arms, easy to pedal 32T chainring, narrow handlebars, a choice of 13? or 15? frame and simple to use, slimline quick release seat collar allow you to find the perfect fit for cycling enthusiasts

Building the perfect foundation for any budding cyclist, Dawes' all new Academy range takes centre stage. Boasting lightweight builds for ages 2+, Dawes have taken time to develop this premium range to ensure it hits the ground rolling! Where suitable components weren't available, they've made their own. Each nut, bolt and component has been specifically made to suit the exact needs of the intended use and, user of these special little machines. No more heavy bikes, riding with your knees around your ears or, struggling to turn the pedals. . ..just smooth riding and lots of good fun!
