Hello can you please help me
I have for some time been looking for a new bike for my daughter aged 11 who takes an adult medium size.
The only stipulation is that it must be in blue as this is her favourite colour.
I have seen these 3 bikes. I know the Vitus had good spec but I rather like the internal cabling of the giant.
Just wondering your thoughts on these bikes.
P.S can't really buy 2nd hand as I have been looking at 2nd hand bikes for a few months and nothing posted is the right size. right colour and within travelling distance.

    I would probably go vitus, talon, then whyte based purely on spec. The vitus has the better forks and rave reviews to back it up.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I'd pick the Vitus out of these. This is quite a long bike and seems very big in a medium frame for an 11 year old, I wouldn't put anyone under 5'8" on one
    Now where's that "Get Out of Crash Free Card"
