Farrier Stayer 650 Road Bike. Designed as an intermediary for kids who are too big for a 24 inch kid's bike, but too small for full sized adult road bike, the Farrier Stayer 650 road bike is a great way for your child to continue riding while between sizes. The Stayer suits children between 10 and 13 years old, but could also be a fit for small adults struggling to find an adult frame that suits their body. With a stand over height of 27.75 inches, the Stayer is suitable for people with relatively short torsos and with inseams around 29 30 inches. The 6061 aluminum frame and fork make for a lightweight, responsive road machine, and the Satori Leopard LS handlebar is also 6066 aluminum and features a smaller reach and drop for a more comfortable ride for small riders. The 8 speed Shimano drivetrain offers 16 gearing options for climbing, accelerating, and reaching top speeds. The Shimano Claris 8 speed STI shifters keep shifting seamless thanks to the Shimano Claris front and rear derailleurs sucking up chain slack. And don't think Farrier sacrificed durability by going with smaller wheels, because the Alex DA22 650C rims feature sleeve joints to protect the joint of the rim halves, increasing contact with the rim's inner wall while maintaining lightweight properties. The Indicator line will also let you know when it's time to replace a rim. The Farrier Stayer 650 road bike is a great transitional bike for kid's growing into young adults or adults who still feel like kids.
