SOLD: Islabikes Beinn 26 Large

Postby robgibson » 11 Oct 2020, 7:46am

For sale is my son's Islabike, a Beinn 26 Large in aquamarine blue. Much loved, it comes with mudguards and a Blackburn bottle cage. Tyres upgraded to Vittoria Randonneur (26x1.5) for their puncture resistance, and we recently replaced the handle bar grips with new ones from the Islabikes store.

The condition is excellent, a couple of small paint chips on the frame, and some marks on the chainstay (see picture). Highlights of this model include the simple 1x8 SRAM gears, the lightweight frame, and the brake levers designed for children's fingers. The size is described as being suitable for "Age 10+". It's been utterly reliable for us.

Cycling UK review of this model: "The simplicity of a rigid fork and a single chainring saves weight and complexity over a suspension fork and a triple chainset without sacrificing function: budget suspension forks have relatively little function, while a wide ratio 8-speed cassette offers low and high enough gears. The wonder is that someone hadn’t done this before. It’s not rocket science, just uncommonly sensible design. Highly recommended."

Currently out of stock on the Islabikes website (new RRP £500), good ones seem to be going for £400 on eBay, I'd like £350 for it.

Location: south Manchester, near Timperley Metrolink station (WA15 6TB).
