Exploring forgotten dirt and gravel roads brings out the kid in all of us, so why aren't there more youth gravel bikes? Think of our Haanjo Trail 24 as a peace offering to all the kids who want a bike that looks like their parents'. It's a drop-bar alternative road bike with all the features you'd expect on a top of the line adult bike: a hydroformed aluminum frame, integrated shifters, and disc brakes. A 2×8 drivetrain offers a wide range of gears to tackle steep climbs or long stretches of path, and high-volume semi-knobby tires offer grip on pavement or loose gravel. A true gravel grinder for youngsters, the Haanjo Trail 24 is ready for the long haul—even if it's only ridden to school.

best kids bike money can buyReview by palgume
by far the best kid's road-bike money can buy at this price/value level.
purchased the bike at local bike shop but review is warranted because there is barely any here and the bike deserves them.
going with pro/con styling
-Shifters - large (some might see it as a con on child's bike) therefore it was very easy for my son to learn and easily shift both the rear and front.
-derailleurs - the Claris groupset is precise, responsive QUIET and evenly spaced for proper power application between gears.
-brakes - large (adult levers) make it easier for a child to apply brakes - the top levers help tremendously during the transition period
-discs- eliminate issues with mud on rimms (kids will ride through water/mud on purpose.
-frame and fork - aluminium but my boy did not complain about the stiffness or road vibrations - he was delighted that he can lift the bike on his own
-weight of the bike is roughly 22 lbs. not light considering small frame but NOT heavy by any account (his old bike was steel and weight was 46 lbs)
-seat is of road bike style and has nice amount of padding only time will tell if it'll stay on there
-tires are narrow (not slicks) but studded for more than just road grip
-bearings must be of decent quality because the wheels free spin for quite a while
-bottom bracket crank seems OK (quiet and smooth operation)
this thing uses skewers on both wheels awesome idea if one ever gets a flat as less tools are required to make necessary repairs.
-pedals are large studded plastic type (resin) replaced with junior resin stud-less pedals of half the size.
-cables are barely attached (clips are used to attach casing to the frame clips broke on first ride (black wire-ties did a great job and will stay longer)
-no kick stand - i get that this is road / cyclocross type bike but really ????? kid's bike with no kick stand just gets thrown (installed 10$ kickstand on chain-stay)
overal this is by far best kid bike money can buy. group-set is no the money and precise. shifting is easy and exact (one click one gear both directions) - my son (8YO) transitioned from Walmart bike to this in less than 15 minutes - he used all 8 lower gears on first ride and started using big chain ring - on the second long ride he has not once went into lower chain ring - first ride 15.7 miles (but hurts but not legs) avg speed 8.8 MPH - second ride 22 miles (but + legs hurting) avg speed 9.7 MPH (on old bike record was 11 miles with severe pain in legs + bottom and average speed 6.8 MPH) but hurts less with every ride and my boy is talking about doing 40 mile ride before the summer gets here - making me a very proud PAPA.
long story short if your child is tall enough to fit this bike - and you want to go faster than SNAIL on your next ride with less torture for your child buy this bike - best 370 bucks i ever spend.(Posted on 4/26/2017)
