Scatto JC28 Small 11-speed 700c MTB/CX/TRI Straight-Bar Bike
Same superb bike as the 10sp version, but now with the world's first 11-speed Short-Reach groupset with wide ratio gears - this thing can climb!
A year-round bike to do it all? Not only is it a superb Cyclocross or Triathlon bike giving younger riders the big benefit of 700c wheels, but swap the tyres and it's also a fantastic MTB XC race bike too.
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.
Best of all, it can still climb, so it’s perfect for leisure rides in the holidays, trail or road. It’s even ready for a trip to the Alps, thanks to it’s 11-34t cassette and long-cage mech producing a sub-1.6 metre gear rollout (30Tx40t) on road tyres. An important consideration when putting smaller children on 700c wheels.
Our Scatto JC28 (Junior Cross, 28"/700c wheel) bikes are a game-changer, because your rider doesn’t have to wait until they are 11 years old to ride a 700c bike anymore (for reference, the very small but experienced 8-year old test rider in our photographs is 123cm tall with a 52cm inside leg on a custom-built example with the smallest HUP components).
