This is an amazing bike for the value. All quality components, and they made the right call in not including a suspension fork. The geometry is great for those kids that can’t ride adult bikes yet but are too tall for 24” wheels.
I love the way they look, both colors. Oddly, a friend bought his daughter the same silver/pink bike as my daughter’s, but their bike is matte silver as opposed to my daughter’s brushed silver look.
Transmission works fine, disc brakes are safe. There is just enough room for a water bottle in the main triangle, but be careful not to pull the C clamps that hold the cable housings to the frame when reaching for the bottle.
I got 10 year-old twins so I bought each one a Beasley 26”. They are about 5” now and should be able to ride it for another year or two.
The only thing I would change (in this bike is to replace the 250mm seat post by a 350mm one. I want them to find a better pedaling position and the seat post is too short for kids 5” and above. Not a big problem, it’s a $20 part in my LBS. Oh, by the way, the specs in this page are incorrect. It says the seat post is 30.9/350 but in fact it is 27.2/250.
I liked this bike so much that considered buying the Beasley 27.5 DLX for me. But my wife says I already have too many bikes...
