The Islabikes Beinn 26 is a multi purpose kids bike that is equally at home on the school run as bike packing across Europe.
The ability to easily add a pannier rack, mudguards and a bottle cage means you can tailor the bike to suit the type of riding you’re doing.
The Beinn’s come with a frame that is designed to fit a child like a glove, components are proportioned for children’s bodies and a price tag to match.
You get narrower bars for smaller hands, low q factor (distance between crank arms for comfortable pedalling), and the aluminum frame tubes have been specified to be strong but thin-walled to save weight.
Islabikes manufacture a high proportion of componentry themselves, but have specified SRAM gearing for the Beinn range, with a twist grip selecting one of 7 speeds.
These bikes are built to last, so they often come up secondhand. If you’re buying new then take care of it and you’ll recoup a far proportion of what you paid when you come to sell on.
We’ve reviewed a much older version of the Beinn 26 and our tester loved it. Things will have only got better in the intervening time.
