Christmas Drive for Bicycles - Advice required


Recommended Posts

I am planning to donate some bicycles to kids less fortunate or just in need.

I need some advice on what size to get and what can I get for about R1000 each.


The kids are a mix of boys and girls ages around 10 to 14 - No idea if they tall/short.

Will a 24" MTB be to small for kids aged 10-14 or should be looking at 26" to be safe?


Makro has a special on a Raleigh for R899, which has 1 year guarantee.


Yes / No?

Don't do it. The bikes will fall apart.


Better to buy some cheapies in the classifieds and fi em up a bit and donate bikes that will last a bit longer, be more reliable, lighter and use standard, easy-to-get parts.
