Looking for any and all suggestions. My soon to be ten year old son is currently on a 24" Rocky Mountain with at 13" frame and disc brakes, and he is one growth spurt away from outgrowing it. This is his third season on it. I've seen on here where an XS Juliana is often used for kids his age, but they are next to impossible to find used, and I hate to replace it in a year. The newer Julianas are too hard to disguise the fact that it is a girls bike. I'm thinking a small Superlight, or even a Small Yeti about 5 years old might be the way to go, but all the used bikes with 26" wheels I am seeing are REALLY old and probably heavier than what he is on now, and don't have disc brakes. We live in Utah, and I feel pretty strongly that he needs the extra braking power. What other full suspension bikes come in smaller frames with 26" wheels that aren't from the last century? I found a small Yeti for $1295 (ugh) with these specs but it just seems like so much $$$ and possibly overkill for a kid. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
Used Yeti 575 Aluminum. Size Small. Very Good condition. This bike has been very well maintained, freehub was just serviced and the bike is freshly tuned.
