Pros: aluminium frame, shimano components, short crank arms
Cons: nothing!
" With 3 kids and as a triathlete myself we have had a few bikes!This is the second Carrera brand bike we now own - because their aluminium frames are sturdy but a good weight and the components are reliable. No frills and no big name brand, but for my money I seriously consider these bikes to be as good as the big brand alternatives at significantly less.
On this particular bike the absence of front suspension keeps the weight down and makes the handling easier for our just-8 year old and the short (14cm) crank arms make it easier to power. The bike has a rear derailleur only, but the gear range is very good and again, keeps it simple for an 8 year old. Highly recommended.
Be careful of any mudguards you buy...mountain bike-style mudguards do not necessarily fit this bike.

Pros: quality, sizing, colour, weight
" I bought this bike for my 6 yr old son. He's quite tall at 1m 24cm and this bike is a great fit. He had outgrown his 16in bike and I was looking for a 24in bike with a frame to suite his height. I also wanted a bike with a single gear shifter and no suspension to keep the weight down. The frame is light and the brakes are excellent. My son loves the look of the bike and he took to his first bike with gears like a duck to water. This is a high quality bike at a great price. I strongly recommend this bike. "

" Great bike for on and off road, my boy absolutely loves it. He finds the gear change simple to use but it causes blisters after a while (have slide hand over to twist like the throttle on a motor bike) so a traditional gear lever would work better. But that's a minor issue on what is a very well put together and keenly priced bike. "
