Hello again, and welcome back to Just Answer!
I hope you have been well!
Are you set on buying your son a new bike, or would a gently used or refurbished road bike also be acceptable, seeing as the prices of new bikes are
quite high. You're absolutely right, that the prices are sky-high and this is most likely due to the rising price of materials and our current overall inflation.
I've found a bike shop called 'Stuart's Bikes' in your area, and this may be a great solution for you. Read about how they refurbish second-hand bikes and make them like new. The prices seem quite reasonable: http://www.oxfordbicycles.co.uk/
You can call them to see if they have what you are looking for, in stock: 01993 850521 / 07889 050494
If you are interested in only a new bike for your son, please let me know and I will be happy to continue working with you to find one.
