Scott has taken its knowledge of high performance bikes for adults and squeezed it into a smaller package that is designed to suit children of between seven and nine years of age. The Scott Scale JR 20 Inch certainly makes an impression with its yellow paint job and it is a bike that both walks the walk and talks the talk thanks to carefully arranged components from top manufacturers.

The frame, saddle and shock-sporting front fork all work together to provide a ride that is balanced and poised, allowing young riders to hone their talents and most importantly have fun on a stable, suitably sized bike. With components from the likes of Shimano and Tektro you can tell that there is quality onboard, but this comes at a price, particularly if it is only going to be used for a couple of years before it is outgrown.

The Scott Scale JR 20 Inch has a style that kids will love. A bold yellow frame with black detailing and branding makes it look just as much fun as it actually is. It also looks very much like the full sized adult options offered by Scott, so if you have a child who wants to follow in their parents’ footsteps and stick with this type of quality bike, then they will be able to do so, although kids can be fickle about this type of thing.
