£279 in Evans - (and pretty much everywhere) - this is in great condition . . . so I'm looking for £160.
If you know anything about kids bikes, you'll already know this is about as good as it gets quality wise, it's a million miles above typical kids bikes that weigh an absolute ton, are built like crap and preform like toys, Early Rider basically build these kids bikes to proper adult bike specs.
This is the very same bike that Jesus first rode (no hands) when he was born on Christmas day, so it's pretty likely that if you don't get it for your child you will probably end up in hell.
I'll just cut and paste the stuff from EarlyRider's own website:
"Arguably our most rewarding bike as well as one of the hardest to develop. At a little over 5.5kgs the Belter sets the standard. It's worth bearing in mind that every kilo on a 3 year olds' bike is the equivalent of 4 or 5 on an adult bike. At 5kgs lighter than most 16" bikes, that's a big difference to a child.
It's not just the weight however, everything is designed low rolling resistance. The high thread count high psi tyres, the cartridge bearing hubs and even bespoke full bearing aluminium pedals all play a part. But it is the belt drive that steals the show, a belt will never stretch like a chain, it'll never be gunked up by dirt and grease and it will be as good the day your kid has finished with it as the day they first rode it and dad doesn't have to worry about maintaining it."
This is a picture I grabbed off the internet so you know the model (on my one the chain ring guard is black rather than silver) . . . if anyone is interested I can grab some shots of the actual bike I am selling:
If you don't have a child, this is an ideal bike for a cat or dog.
Chains don't stretch.
Dat frame reminds me of:
... which is No Bad Thing.
Yeah, a fully grown up adult can also use it as a BMX, because BMX's are essentially just children's bikes but without the stickers.
Bumping without price drop. Reported.
"Bumping without price drop. Reported"
You can't prove it was me, it could have been anyone with access to my computer, that's certainly not the kind of thing I'd post and I don't remember posting it, I smell a rat, I reckon it's an inside job.
No more crytic than your usual offerings...
I'll take £158 if you throw in the shoes.
Does it barspin?
This sale thread is very entertaining.
"Does it barspin?"
That entirely depends on how you define 'barspin', if by 'Does it barspin?' you mean does it come with a free Cycle Surgery sticker, then the answer is yes.
You just think the rules don't apply to you, punk.
We should stop to think here for a moment. Why is there no picture of the actual bike? The OP admits so him- or herself (or whatever, it could of course be an alien). Not only that, but the chainring is allegedly a different colour.
What is therefore pretty certain is that this bike doesn't exist and tynan (which could be an alien or a robot) is selling nothing to get enough money to attend the beatification service. Don't say you haven't been warned.

It is a bit of a belter.
Pm'd. Can I be sure that all traces of Anti theft paste will be removed before I collect?
"Can I be sure that all traces of Anti theft paste will be removed before I collect?"
I personally hose down all the bikes I steal from children, often using the very tears they were crying as I ran off with their bike.
"Why is there no picture of the actual bike?"
Who said it was a bike ?
"The OP admits so him- or herself (or whatever, it could of course be an alien). Not only that, but the chainring is allegedly a different colour, and it's black, which is totally racist."
You're just stuck in the western gender-race-sexuality identity paradigm, to me there is no black or white only different shades of grey.
"What is therefore pretty certain is that this bike doesn't exist and tynan (which could be an alien or a robot) is selling nothing to get enough money to attend the beatification service."
If this doesn't sell in the next 24 hours I'm going to use it to cycle to Rome.
The lady on the left has a strong aura.

SOLD to Backsplash.
I have never seen a happier face than when Backsplash peddled off on his new tiny bike, I was crying with Christmas joy, he was crying with happiness, he did a final skid to a stop at the corner of my road, turned and gave a captain's salute before disappearing.
Looking to buy one of these if anyone has one going spare.
