A bike to grow with... folders and compacts.

Last year I was looking for a bike for my oldest daughter who was then ten and is a taller girl... she did not like any 24 inch bikes and a 20 inch bike was too small and I just happened upon a 1980 Raleigh Saffron which is the non folding version of the Raleigh Compact.

She has loved this bike from day one and tells people she will have this bike when she is 30 because it can be adjusted for someone her size as well as someone my size.

For when dad rides it...

I know how challenging it can be to keep up with how fast our kids grow so was wondering of any other parents have considered or went out and bought a folder for their older children ?
