Yeah, I saw those ads as well.

I'm not convinced it's a kids bike, despite the description in that ad. Maybe the wheel size causes people to post them that way - they're the same size on the "adult" BikeE. The handle bar & seat post max. adjustments are well beyond kid size. Plus it's 18 speeds. And the guy I got it from is the same height as me.

But the minimum adjustments would certainly let a kid ride it.

From what I understand, CCM made 3 sizes of the EVOX and this one is the middle one. The largest one was more of a touring style.
