What bike is this?

No, not a quiz. It's my son's birthday in a few weeks and I've been toying with getting him a new second hand bike but proper kid's bikes are proper expensive and to be honest he's not that into cycling - cricket's the big thing at the moment.

So anyway if anyone can shed any light on what this bike that I may bid for is, I'd be very grateful.

    Cheers, I'll let you know how I get on. Kids racing bikes are stupidly expensive here, £140 on ebay for an old Decathlon own brand, £300+ for anything that looks vaguely lightweight.

    just to tidy up, I really stupidly missed out on this one. I was winning with £76 and time was ticking down, looking in occasionally to check I was still ahead, when with about 10 seconds to go, I realised I'd misread it and it wasn't showing my £76 bid at all but someone else's £78 bid. Needless to say I wasnt quick enough to get another bid in.

    In the end I spent a load more money on one of these
