For the youngest junior Hoys, the Bonaly 16 is a simple go-anywhere ride that puts quality and easy riding first – and it comes in orange just like Sir Chris Hoy’s first track bike! It all starts with shorter cranks than most children’s bikes are commonly specified with. This and the rigid forks used means we can drop the frame / bottom bracket as low as possible to make the frame as stable and manageable as possible for small riders. Proper bearings, a single gear and light integrated headsets for a neat, refined look, all features found on the adult’s Hoy track bikes. Plus, there’s a grab-rail on the saddle in case Mum or Dad need to help out when small legs get tired. The Bonaly is named after the area at the foothills of the Pentlands where Sir Chris ventured off-road for the first time. The Bonaly 16 uses tyres with a large volume to make those first excursions in safe places like a park a little comfier. No stabilisers are included – they can be fitted but we hope that young riders could be encouraged to learn to ride without them as soon as possible.
