Think our trips are all having new bikes for Christmas as they have always has secondhand ones to date! How do they measure them? The boys are average height but she is abit smaller. Where are the best bargains?

We hve just been through the process with our lot. I would say go to an independnet local bike shop and let them measure up. I did all the research (ie asked on MN grin) and that malarkey and I was comletely wroing. They told me to go up a size 2" or it would only last a year. They assembled checked and showed them how to use gears and offered a service after 8 weeks.

I would avoid Toys R Us and Halfords 'bargains'

I also discovered that Viking Bikes are made in the same factory as Claud Butler but much cheaper

This website was good for impartial advice www.whycycle.co.uk/index.php am guessing impartial as does not actually sell any bikes!
