Hey Folks:

So the girls just keep growing and moving through bikes faster than I blow through tubes in rock gardens, so here is the latest one that we would like to offload. It's practically new. Axis Team 24 Bike, Red-9M4 Garneau (https://garneau.com/ca/en/cycling/axis-team-24-bike-c/color/red-9m4-410).

The long story is that we got it for the big kid for her birthday in March (winter in Toronto), so she rode it a couple of times on the path, and then broke her elbow before school ended for the summer. While she was non-riding in a cast, she grew enormous. Her little sister rode it on a trainer (fundraiser, okay!), but could never reach the brakes/shifters, and then it was another winter. Now they're both either more into ripping around in the grass on CX bikes, and/or too big. So this awesome, hardly used bike is up for sale. No mods. We haven't even taken off the pie plate. All original.

It's overbuilt as most kids' bikes tend to be, though not overly heavy, but we would prefer to sell locally as opposed to shipping. Canada to U.S. shipping is almost as bad as the other way around.

Price is $550 CDN net to us. With the exchange rate, that's probably like fifty bucks USD or thirty pre-brexit pounds...
