Raleigh RX24 cyclocross bike $304 or possibly less (Kids bike)

Amazon [amazon.com] has the Raleigh RX24 cyclocross bike for $304+tax. Regular/Full price is $649. Free prime shipping or slow boat shipping if you don't have it. Hard to find a real kids CX bike this cheap unless you are looking at used.

Good review here [cxmagazine.com]. Seems like the biggest problem is the odd sized rims which limit future tire choices.

Picked one up for my son last night at $313 then refreshed and price dropped to $307. Now a couple bucks cheaper so they might be clearing them out and dropping the price even more.

This is not a mountain bike so you'll probably want to look at something else. Cyclocross bikes are basically road bikes with knobby tires that can be ridden on or off road but definitely not comparable to a real mountain bike. It's also a kids bike, most likely for 9-12 year olds.

This is a good price but note that it's a youth bike meant for the 9-12 age range.

OP: might want to list this info more prominently in the post.

Can this bike really weigh 13.5 lbs? I feel like ordering one just to weigh it.

Would these be a good alternative to a road bike but with better off road? The thing is i ride on roads only but my city is always under construction and the streets are a mess! potholes, uneven roads, and gravel everywhere would this bike be a good alternative or should I just go for a mountain bike? I had a road bike before but I felt it was very delicate for my streets and wouldn't have lasted long they stole it like 3 weeks after I bought it so I didn't really get to test it out but I felt it would have probably torn apart by the roads in my neighborhood

I would say yes. I had to buy a 24" for my 5'0" wife.,

Why UCI worried about the bike weight? The lighter bike the better ride !

We just bought one from our local bike shop about a month ago. It is a GREAT bike for my 8 year old. Light, strong, and this is a screaming good deal.

It's 21.16 pounds WITHOUT pedals. It's a limited use bicycle, like a BMX race bike in a mini size. It'll work for some jobs, but it's not going to be a good choice. The limited tire selection should be enough to rule it out for most people. I have worked in local bike shops and a bicycle manufacturer, and there is a reason this kind of bike is clearanced in bunches at the end of the year.

Sarcastic or really asking?
Classes and to keep the intended purpose of the race. Same with tire width size restrictions. Increase competition and level the playing field. Most racing sports have this where the better equipment and less the human can play a major role in the outcome. In automotive world, the winner of local races if all heads up no restrictions would be the one person who showed up in a nitromethane rail dragster giving the other 50 participants no chance and everyone loses interest, same concept for circle track, rally etc.. Bike races are no different.

I'm going on an odd tangent here but look at 1/4 mile bracket racing for cars. The concept is it is not the speed of your car that matters, the fastest car has little bearing on who can win, it is consistency and repeatability. Guessing your time and the closest without going over wins. That allows almost anyone with a car to participate and have a chance. Then electronics started coming out specifically for bracket racing, optical sensors, air shifters, stutter boxes, automatted throttle limiters and stops, timers, traction control etc... The sport leaned back up to the point where the equipment is now playing a bigger role and can substitute for driver and track condition experience in the outcome again. Not specifically the overall HP and speed of the car but the timing. There are specific "no electronic assistance" classes which is kind of how it all started.
