Scatto J-Race 700c Junior Road Race Bike
A very rare, lightweight and correctly proportioned Scatto J-Race 700c junior road bike (recommended min inside leg 62cm) makes an incredible road or tarmac Triathlon racing bike for 8yr olds+ (for reference, the small 9-year old test rider in our photographs is 134cm tall with a 62cm inside leg).
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 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!

If you intend to Road Race or Triathlon (on gear restricted events) let us know your child’s British Cycling/British Triathlon age category and we can specify the correct chainring, cassette & tyres to maximise the available gearing. We can also fit more upgrades to improve the specification and reduce weight further, such as super-lightweight chains, bottom-brackets and cassettes.
