Looking for small sized kids road bike

Anybody have one they want to offload? I'm in Folsom, looking for an extra small kids road bike, similar to the Fuji Ace 24/650 or the Trek KDR 1000, or Felt F24- but don't want to spend a fortune.

Anybody have one their kid out grew, or decided they didn't want to ride anymore that would be willing to let go

Thx!

We were in the same boat a little over a year ago. The used ones I found were going for $550 or more. I got a new Felt Z24 from Folsom Bike for around $600. I'll sell it in a few years when both the kids outgrow it. My 9yo went out with me this morning for a nice little 17mi ride.

It's worth getting one to ride with the kids.

Redline has a cute little cross bike... We were going to get one for my 10 year old son but ended up getting him a dolce... It's blue so he doesn't care it's a wsd. Definitely worth it!

There has been a small Gardin on consignment at Livermore Cyclery (the one in Livermore, not Dublin) for quite some time now. It even has a bent top tube to make the standover height shorter. This is a real bike - Columbus tubing of some sort - and may well be what you are looking for. 7-speed drivetrain if I recall, definitely Shimano. Give them a call at 925-455-8090.
