The chance we never had.

The 6061-T6 frame and Shimano Claris shifting at the heart of the Ridley Kids Race 26 Complete Bike are similar to — if not actually better than — what many of us had on our first dedicated road machines. In addition to integrated shift levers (yes, some of us got started on indexed down tube shifters) the key difference is that the Kids Race bike features a smaller, 26in wheelset while we were often stuck on full-sized, 700c wheels that necessitated a frame geometry ill-suited to our younger selves' smaller dimensions. By giving inchoate racers a platform better suited to their reach and stack requirements, you're giving them a chance to start developing adult-sized bike handling skills at a child's age.

What's the standover on this bike? And any idea once ordered, how long it would take to ship? Thanks.

Hi Ami! Ridley doesn't list the standover height but the seat tube is 13 inches long. With 26 inch wheels and a slight drop in the bottom bracket, I estimate the stand over to be about 24.5 inches. Give me a shout and we can go over the details. btowery@backcountry.com 801-204-4557

Great Road and CX bike for the youngster

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This bike is great for a 9-11 year old (of course depending on height etc.) Very easy to convert to a CX bike with only a change of tires. Actually Ridley makes this bike as a road or CX bike. I threw on a pair of Schwalbe CX Pro Tires in the 26" version and there is tons of clearance for the front and rear tires. My son used it in several muddy CX races this year and absolutely loved it. Great value for the money.
