Available with a 13" frame, our Squish 650B is a great choice for slightly older or taller children aged approx 10+. Of course, at this age, they’re often more grown up than their parents (or so we let them think!), this is why at Squish HQ in Birmingham we pureposefully designed the colours and graphics to be more subtle. We’ve removed our little Squish character from the headtube and left just clean, subtle designs to ensure street-cred is held at high as possible. We’ve still kept little hints of colour on the rims, headset spacers and even the rear mech hanger, but that’s just a nod to the playful side of Squish….these bikes mean business and could even be suitable for more petite adult riders!
With 165mm cranks, 38T chainring and Shimano 8spd 11-32T cassette each aspect of the bike has been increased slightly in size to match the rider. We’ve not overdone it with too many gears to try and keep everything nice and simple, but we have ensured there’s enough gear ratio’s to get up most hills, and enough low gears to race back down. The double-wall alloy rims, powerful alloy v-brakes and robust triple butted frame ensure weight is kept to a minimum, but also give the performance and strength our customers have come to expect from Squish!
