Culprit S1 brings you the same geometry as our Junior One but at a lower price point. Still using 7005 for a lighter frame, the S1 comes with an alloy round seatpost to help reduce the costs. Many of our competitors bikes at this price point come with down tube shifters, we have found that to be dangerous and also does not prepare the rider to learn how to use STI shifters in preparation of the next bike. The S1 is offered with only 9 speeds but we offer both STI levers to allow the rider to play and practice with the left shifter in preparation for a 650C bike. Geared with microshift 9 speed and a 40 tooth fixed chain ring this bike will meet and exceed most of your riders needs.
Tech info The frame is built from the same material of alloy (7005) of top end frames but offered at much lower price. 7005 Alloy fork with a chromoly steerer. Custom 140 mm 40T chain ring with a bash guard to prevent a dropped chain Microshift R9 shifters
The S1 stand over height requirement is 550 mm .(please ensure your little rider with shoes on from the floor to their crotch has 550mm length) to ensure safety of stopping and starting. This bike is designed for 6-9 year olds, but it depends on your childs growth rate
