The 26" road/ cyclocross/ adventure bike comes with an Aluminium frame, Shimano Claris 8 Speed groupset, 26″ wheels and Schwalbe CX pro off road tyres. Ideal for 13 year old riders upwards, or those taller than 150cm
The Meadowmill is named after the cyclo-cross circuit (opens in new tab) that Sir Chris Hoy raced on early in his career, and is aimed at young riders who are looking to ride on a multitude of terrains, with drop down handlebars and lightweight aluminium frame.
The range comes with child-friendly components and new Q factor crankset, which Evan Cycles says has been designed to ensure smaller riders’ legs are closer together and pedalling is efficient and smooth.
The crankset lengths have also been designed to limit any overstretch of legs, as well as ensuring pedals don’t clip the floor when cornering.
Handlebar widths have been tailored to match different shoulder widths of children, which should help with bike control, in addition to the new lightweight frame and finishing kit, low spoke wheels and super light foam padding for saddles all help to reduce weight and improve comfort whilst on the bike.
