BikeRadar Bargains: The best discounted kids' bikes

Bargain kids' bikes make an ideal gift this Christmas

While we can't speak for a generation gone mad for Xbox-ing and Pokémon-going, we do know that we would have certainly been overjoyed to find any one of these bikes under our Christmas tree of childhood days gone-by.

With child- and teenage-sized bikes here there should be something for everyone in this week's edition of BikeRadar bargains. So do the right thing and give the gift of freedom, horizons chased and grazed knees this Christmas.

Apollo Police Patrol kids bike  — £140.00 £70.00

It's a debate that will rage on forever more among children the world over — what's cooler: a fire engine or a police car?

While we won't weigh in on such heated issues (it's obviously a train anyway), we think that we can all agree that a bike styled after a police car is undoubtedly cool. 

Cube Access WLS kids 29" hardtail  — £379 £303.99

If the moody teen in your life is looking to get into mountain biking this entry-level Cube mountain bike is a great option

While this bike may be a Cube, it certainly isn't for squares. Resplendent in its aubergine-like 'darkberry' hue, this 29" mountain bike would make an ideal gift for the not-so-little person in your life who's keen to dabble in shredding the gnar.

Cruzee Balance Bike  — £99.99 £58.99

Your kid will be the blingiest one at the swing set with this jewel-like balance bike from Cruzee

If your little sproglet isn't old enough to have yet decided on what type of cycling they're most interested in, or actually hasn't mastered the whole pedalling thing yet, you may want to consider a balance bike. 

We like the look of the Cruzee Balance Bike from Chain Reaction, and in no small part due to the selection of cool colours that are available — blingy gold or bust we say. 

Trek Superfly 20  — £310 £250

For the pint-sized shredder in your life, the Trek Superfly is well worth a look. With 20" wheels, a simple 1x6 drivetrain and a lightweight alloy frame this is an ideal first mountain bike.
