Scatto J-Race 700c Junior Road Race Bike
Rare, lightweight and correctly proportioned 700c road bike, the tiny 38cm Scatto J-Race makes for an incredible children's bike.
A unique Road or Triathlon racing bike for 8yr olds+ (for reference, the very small but experienced 8-year old test rider in our photographs is 125cm tall with a 54cm inside leg on a custom-built example with the smallest HUP components).
All built with correct, child-specific components so they can ride in comfort, putting all their power down on the road. This is not simply a small frame, with cheap adult components that make it difficult. This is a low-standover, short cockpit (49cm top-tube) bike with short, narrow Q-factor proportional cranks.
Our Scatto J-Race bike is a game-changer, because your rider doesn't have to wait until their 11 years old to ride a full-sized 700c adult wheel anymore!
