    Commencal Supreme 24 for trail riding

    Anyone swap out the components on Supreme 24 to lighting the bike up for trail riding? How was it for the little rider climbing?

    Just trying determine if it is worth the investment to upgrade his components. Bike geo is based of META AM vs Supreme DH, but still slack.

    I was looking at swapping the forks out for FOX Talas 140-110MM (few used ones on pink for decent price) and upgrading rear shock from coil to air. Then build a set ZTR wheelsets lighting up and go tubeless.

    My boy is small, still have few more season on the bike.

    Not on a 24 but I have built up the 20 for exactly that purpose.
    Forks went with 24" RST F1RST air which are very light with rebound and compression.
    Went 1x10 with 30t chainring and 11-36 out back for the drive chain.
    Custom built wheels on Hope pro2 hubs running tubeless.

    Choose most components based on price and weight without going mad and used auction sites were possible rather than buying retail.
    Ended up costing less than the factory model and is a lot lighter. My 6yr old can now ride/climb anything i can.

    thanks, your sons build is nice. I wish I would have custom built his too. If do invest I know it won't be complete waist... when it is time to upgrade to a 26", I will probably get BLK MKT ROAM frame and swap the parts out.
