  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I purchased the large 20″ Beinn for my 6 year old son at Christmas time and after a solid 4 months of use – I can honestly say this is the best kids bike that I’ve ever seen. It’s clear they started with a clean sheet design and set out to build a kids bike that is focused on both fit and performance. The pedals are closer together and shorter for the size of the child which makes a huge difference on how easy the bike is to ride. The handle bars are at just the right location and width. Most 20″ bikes don’t offer gears and this one is impressive with a 7 speed grip shifter that is easy for my son to use – and appears to operate better through the whole gear range than my daughter’s 24″ Trek with a similar gear design. Overall, the fit and finish is excellent and it’s all the little things like rugged handle bar grips, a water bottle holder and a deluxe kick stand that make it truly exceptional.

    If all that above doesn’t convince you to invest in one of these, then hopefully this story will. Approximately 2 years ago when my son was 4 we got him a cheap Schwinn 16″ bike and he struggled with it at first but eventually mastered riding it. He was a tough kid and he pedaled his heart out on longer 5-10 mile family bike rides but would complain of his legs getting tired. I had never heard of Islabikes until I started doing some research on the best kids bikes. What immediately jumped out at me about the Islabike Beinn was that it was a 20″ bike with gears and it only weighed 17.3 lbs, which is crazy light. When you lift it up, it’s an order of magnitude lighter than the comparable Trek 20″. So I went back an weighed his little 16″ Schwinn and was shocked to see it weigh in at 29 lbs. I went back and looked up my son’s growth chart and honestly feel bad we bought a 29 lb bike for a 35 lb kid! When my son gets on the Islabike Beinn – he goes like the wind and never complains now about the duration of a ride and that weight ratio is down to about 1:3.

    After much research, I bought a pink Beinn 20 for my tall five-year-old daughter and both she and I love it. The bike is thoughtfully designed for kids. What does this mean in practice? That your child will love cycling as much as you do. That she will want to ride instead of watch cartoons. That you can share adventures together.

    I was somewhat concerned about the lack of training wheels, but she learned to ride without them on our first outing—this says something about the bike. It’s simply easier for kids to control than clunkier models, and her previous experience with a balance bike made the transition simple.

    Effectively shifting gears takes a bit more wrist and arm strength than she has right now, but this doesn’t pose a problem for us, since keeping it in a middle gear works well. I would buy this bike again if it were only a single-speed, but her muscles will develop with her thirst for different and longer rides. And it’s good to have the option of gears; the simple shifting method is intuitive and she already understands it well.

    Make a child happy and healthy, and put a smile on both of your faces. Well done, Islabikes.

    Terrific bike. I am so happy I bought this bike! My son had been having a hard time learning to ride before he got this bike. My son got the hang of balancing on the islabike immediately, and learned to pedal soon after that. He loves to ride now! Worth the price.

    Just got a Beinn 20 Large for my 6.5 year old son. He upgraded from the CNOC 16 which passed on to his little sister. Based on a few days of riding I give this bike 5 stars. The light weight is great especially for a smaller kid like my son. The components are all solid choices (and much better than the junk you see on most kids bikes). The looks of the bike are fantastic too. It has already got lots of comments, which of course has made my son super proud and excited about the new bike. People who care about bikes immediately see that this is a real bike, not a toy.

    The shifting is quite light action grip shift. At 6 my son has strength to shift without too much problem. (Figuring out WHEN to shift is still a wok in progress.)

    While the Islabikes are expensive by kid bike standards they are worth every penny if you want your kids to love biking.

    Just adding another comment that these are the best kids’ bikes I’ve come across, We got our son’s older brother a bike a few years ago that is a really nice bike by a top-tier company. He liked it but it was so heavy that he had a tough time riding more than a few miles at a time.

    After doing some additional research we bought the Beinn 20 large for our 6 year old, and it’s amazing how much difference it makes. He was a decent but by no means overly strong rider before, and has now gone on multiple rides of 15+ miles, finishing each ride fired up to keep extending it for additional mileage.

    In terms of factors beyond the light weight: I’m honestly no expert on bike parts or design, but we live right outside Boulder. When we’ve been stopped for rest breaks we have already had 5 or 6 people stop to ask about the bike, with several spontaneous comments about the way the dimensions of the bike fit him amazingly well. So all in all, I’d say that it’s one of the best purchases we’ve made.

    I got this bike for my daughter almost two years ago and she loves it. I love the bikes so much we just got her the Beinn 26 and this one will be handed down to my son.

    Her previous bike was a 16″ Trek bike and it weighed 27 pounds with wide cranks and okay handling. Her Beinn bike is so nimble and she has even raced cyclocross on it and the parts are good quality. The wheels are still true after a season of cyclocross racing and riding on dirt. I really like that the shifters are grip shift since that is so easy for kids to understand.

    I guess my best recommendation for the bike is that I bought the next size up!

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    We are Islabike fans! I have purchased a total of three bikes over the past few years for my two kids. We moved to Montana last year, so unlike Portland, we haven’t seen other Islabike consumers. I recently took my son’s bike to the local bike shop for a tuneup. After all was said and done, the mechanic wanted to know where I found such a great bike. She said it was the nicest kids bike she has ever worked on and that she couldn’t believe how incredibly light it is. Even the Specialized Bikes they sell and rent for kids are not as nice and light as his Islabike (but we already knew that). Even my son’s friends line up to use it because they can feel the difference between their bikes and his. We will continue to purchase Islabikes at every stage as they grow.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    This bike gets my highest recommendation. Just buy one! You’ll see what an enormous improvement it is over the bikes you typically find in your LBS. My kids loves it. His riding improved immediately when he got it because of the geometry, light-weight frame, and smoother bearings. He went from lurching around to holding a steady line with ease.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    I think its important to know my son who has special needs can ride and handle islabikes beautifully. Its a challenge to find a solid bike for children with low muscle tone, this is our 3rd islabike and happy to say its worth the money…

  10. Rated 5 out of 5

    After seeing my daughter’s Islabikes Cnoc 16 in action for the past 18 months, I had high expectations for this bike; I can honestly say those expectations have been exceeded. We went with the larger frame and upgraded to mountain bike tires, since she’s a pretty aggressive trail rider, and she’s *really* stoked on her new, larger, geared bike! Seeing how big it was out of the box and getting the front wheel and peddles on, I was honestly a little concerned that she would struggle at first with the size jump, but within a few minutes she was riding and maneuvering it with zero issues. I’m also very impressed with the twist gear shift design and function… The overall quality of design on these bikes just can’t be overstated!
