Why We Like The Road Race 26 Bike

Here to keep your budding racer spinning with the pack, the Ridley Road Race 26 Bike is a favorite of ours to help young riders build a strong foundation. The strong aluminum frame and fork provide a stable, confident, and performance-focused chassis on winter base-miles all the way to the start line of competitive junior races. The 26-inch wheel size serves as the last stop before graduating to adult-sized bikes equipped with 700c wheels and prepares your youthful podium chaser to balance and steer a larger frame and operate a full 2x drivetrain. Plus, the Road Race may be a bit pint-sized still, but Ridley loads the bike up with all the components needed to ride effectively and competitively.

  • Continue your kid's growth in cycling with this race-ready bike
  • Durable and lightweight aluminum frame and fork
  • Racing geometry that fits both road cycling and cyclocross
  • Shimano Claris drivetrain for high performance on a budget
  • Gearing and wheelset work for road and cyclocross participation

Are you able to upgrade to a knobby style cyclocross tire

Hi Paul, This bike, along with all of our "box" bikes, come direct from manufacturer with parts that we are required to send along with them. With that being said, if there are any parts, in this case the tires, that you'b be looking to upgrade, what we can do is add those parts to an order with discounted bike build pricing. In this instance, however, we run into an issue with availability. 26 inch tires, especially 26 inch road or cyclocross tires, are not readily available, and at this time we don't have any in stock that we could add to an order for this bike. As well, tire clearance would most likely be an issue, as this frame only has clearance for around 23mm wide tires, so many cross style tires wouldn't fit. If you have any other questions on this bike, or any of our other product offerings, feel free to shoot me an email at, call 1-888-276-7130, or hop on the live chat on our website to speak with one of our Gearheads! Best, Ian Bird Competitive Cyclist Loyalty Gearhead 1-888-276-7130


Hello. Can you attach a back rack to this bike? I want to do some bike touring with my kids - but they would need to be able to add panniers to the bike. It doesn't look like there are eyeholes on the frame by the back gears. Please let me know. If so, which back rack would work? Thanks!

Hi David, This frame doesn't have eyelets. You could attach a seatpost clamped pannier rack, or utilize P clamps to attach a rack. Cheers, Eric
