About ByK E-450 8 Speed Boys Bike - White/Bright Red
Bike Assembly Required
Bicycles require some assembly. This may include fitting the wheels, handlebars, pedals, seatpost and seat, and front brake caliper. This should not be attempted by the customer unless familiar with modern bicycle assembly and should otherwise be carried out by a competent bicycle mechanic. This includes bicycles sent to our stores for in store pick up, however, your local Bikebug store can assemble the bicycle for a fee, please contact your local Bikebug store after placing your order.
With the E-450x8 frame, ByK have customised each tube to reduce weight and improve handling. Another crucial ingredient to the clever design is the improved control and bump dampening ability of CRM forks - giving a dramatic advantage in handling and comfort. Little details such as increased knee to handlebar clearance for growing bodies, a longer wheelbase for stable handling, and adjustable pedal position for growing legs, all make the E-450x8 the best entry-geared bike on the market for kids. Durabilty is also a key factor in the E-450x8 such as the added extra strength in the wheels and the tyres.
Performance - Kids love the idea of gears but they give them a tough time! ByK have gone for the top of the range in all departments. Their unique design offers a longer chain length, helping with chain flex. Then they use the direct pulling 1:1 SRAM gears - fantastic because every movement in the lever reflects the same movement in the derailler. Also, by using a cassette hub, ByK have eliminated cluster wobble and the demons of throwing chains off gears.
Safety - The custom-sized V-Brakes are calibrated for power and ergonomic fit. The innovative frame improves balance and control to help each rider operate at the safest level possible.

More About The Manufacturer ByK Bikes
The ByK [prounounced 'bi-kay'] Bike was born from one father's desire to build a bike that was made specifically for children. One that was suitable for a child's growing body and differing proportions to that of an adult. Warren Key has owned bicycle stores his whole life and knows a thing or two about bike design.
He has a 12, 10 and 6 year old and realised early on that there were no well designed bikes on the market for children, anywhere in the world. After a few years of research, design and prototypes, the ByK Bike is now available for Australian children to own.
