Juvenile Bikes

Cycles Bertin offered a full line of children’s bicycles in its classic period from the C 8 with training wheels through to the C 1. What they did excellently was to provide properly sized and speced bicycles with full, quality tubesets  and components scaled to the proportions and smaller size of the youths who would ride them.
