The Academy childrens bikes are something a bit special. Built around a lightweight, triple butted alloy frame, these are perfect for 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? Dawes stuck by this principle across the 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.
