Does anything compare to an Islabike?

Our son has had a Strider balance bike for a year and it's been awesome. He can now ride a pedal bike and we're looking for an Islabike Cnoc 14 or 16.

Does anything compare that isn't £200 delivered new?

    But badly

    A bit flippant, but they're the most popular bike amongst our parents - not to mention the kids. and the net annual cost when the time comes to sell on is probably the lowest of all kids bike brands

    +1 to Mike Healey's comments, although a Ridgeback MX14 or MX16 is decent enough, cheaper and they go for much less if you're buying secondhand.

    Whatever you buy, please don't get something he "can grow into".
    Aspire not to have more, but to be more.
