The Genesis Alpha 24 is our lightest 24" kid's bike. With a lightweight double-butted 6061 Aluminium frame and compliant Cr-Mo fork, wide ratio kid's friendly 8 speed gearing, straight bars and Shimano grip shifting, this is the choice of the discerning parent. Do yourself a favour and parry those demands for a drop-barred road bike at this age - they simply won't manage the adult sized STI shifters and will find the reach to the bars and the brakes too much of a stretch. This is a much more verstaile option, which comes with both 1.5' slick road and cross tyres, making it fast on the road yet comfortable on tracks. This is a bike they can easily control, get up to a decent speed and take it where they want.
