Raleigh Bedlam 20 2018 Yellow
If your little one loves causing mayhem then the Bedlam is the bike for them. Designed in loud and rowdy colourways complimented by black components and a crazy feature print, the Bedlam 20 in shocking Yellow and Pink is sure to catch your child’s eye.
Developed on a hi-tensile steel frame with oversized tubes the Bedlam has been constructed for increased strength and durability to stand up to any terrain. The Bedlam features a rigid front fork which helps to improve balance and increase manoeuvrability and features low rise handlebars which help to promote a good riding position and ensure children are more aware of their surroundings.
The Bedlam boasts a full Shimano transmission which includes Shimano freewheels, derailleurs and Shimano Revoshift shifters; a component mix that will improve your child's experience of learning how to change gears. In our experience, this style of gear shifter is easier for children to operate as it enables them to easily keep their hands fully on the handlebar while changing gear reducing those unwanted wobbles! The bike also has rear derailleur protection which prevents damage to the gears if the bike is dropped to the ground.
Narrow tyres have been selected for this model which feature a modern small block tread pattern making the wheels slimmer and lighter than the majority of the other children's bikes on the market. These tyres are suitable for riding on all terrains including traffic free paths, roads and light trails. Aluminium V-brakes have been added to the Bedlam for safe stopping plus a V-brake modulator has been included which regulates the force applied to the front aluminium V-brake resulting in smoother braking. The aluminium and resin brake levers featured on the bike have been selected to be easily operated by little fingers, an adjustment screw is also fitted allowing you to alter the sizing dependent on the size of your child’s hands.
Safety is a key concern when designing our children’s bikes and all components are designed to make riding as safe as possible for your child. Aluminium wheel rims have been added to provide an improved surface for the brake blocks to brake against plus Raleigh’s special junior non-slip pedals have been fitted featuring rubber pads to prevent feet slipping off. Each pair of non-slip pedals is carefully colour matched to fit the bike design.
We focus on every detail of design when it comes to our children’s bikes, and the Bedlam is no exception; with graphics applied under a clear lacquer to ensure they don't fade or become damaged over time and complimentary coloured saddle bumpers and grips made from a softer dual compound for quality and style.
