Another "which" kids bike is best?

Hi there, My son would like a new bike for his birthday/Christmas pressie. We have started looking around all the lbs's. The first one we went to had the Moda major x on display and he loves it, and i cant (at the minute) get him to consider other makes of bikes. Unfortunately not many lbs don't have decent junior bikes in stock/on display but they do recommend Islabikes, i must admit i like the look and the reputation of them.
My question is, has any one else compared the moda major against the Isla luath 700 small?
Does any one have a moda major and what do they think of them?
Finally my son is 150cm tall, are 700 wheeled bikes to big for him?

Thanks for any help you can give.

    Cannot comment on the Moda but would recommend the the Islabikes. Dawes Espoir also gets mentioned occasionally. For sizing i would feed your son's measurements into the Islabike calculator to get the ideal size, remembering to factor in growing room. Suspect 700 may a bit big for him, but best check first.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
