Designed for kids who spend a lot of time biking on paths or roads, the Farrier Stayer 24-inch road bike is a great way to introduce your child to road bikes. The Stayer suits children between 7 and 10 years old, and with a stand-over height of 26 inches, the Stayer is suitable for kid's with inseams around 27-29 inches.
The 6061 aluminum frame and fork make for a lightweight, responsive road runner, and the Satori Leopard LS handlebar is also 6066 aluminum and features a smaller reach and drop for a more comfortable ride for small riders.
The 8-speed Shimano drivetrain offers 16 gearing options for climbing, accelerating, and reaching top speeds. The Shimano Claris 8-speed STI shifters keep shifting seamless thanks to the Shimano Claris front and rear derailleurs sucking up chain slack. And don't think Farrier sacrificed durability by going with smaller wheels, because the Alex DA22 24-inch rims feature sleeve joints to protect the joint of the rim halves, increasing contact with the rim's inner wall while maintaining lightweight properties. The Indicator line will also let you know when it's time to replace a rim. The Farrier Stayer 24-inch road bike is a great bike for a child to begin road riding.
