    I believe that i will make the following changes to the bike when we own it:
    1 wider bars: The bike was set up with some kids bars and they are too narrow for my guy and we prefer backswept bars, I have a spare h bar or some on-one marys.
    2 lighter tires: 60 pounds of kid can ride the nates at 2psi, but I can save over a pound per tire going to the big hit pro 3" tires that I have been saving since 2002. I also have some snowcat rims, but i don't want to take away the feeling of rolling over everything.
    3 1x9: 60 pounds of kid cannot push the big gears, so there is weight to be saved by losing a big ring and derailleur.
    4 shifters: the sram triggers are hard to work with mittens on. I have a Sram grip shifter, or i may get creative.
    5 shorter cranks: I am not sure how, the current BB is isis and I don't know of any kids isis cranks. I may just break down and get a square taper BB or shorten the stock cranks. Ideas?
    He can climb better and ride as fast on the fattie as he could on the stock Marrin Bayview and he rolls over obstacles much better. He is built for distance, so he was in no danger of wheelies any time soon and the bigger wheels help compensate for that. I thought about modding the Marrin like yours, but i was going to need to buy a bunch of stuff that I didn't have in my parts bin. Also, i ride on snow a lot more than i ride on dirt and we ride a lot of rail trails that have loose surfaces and big gravel.

    If I knew how, i would break this out on a separate thread.
    Cool! Thanks for all the info! As for shorter cranks, not sure how short you are looking forÖ but I know that the Raceface Atlas setup with 100mm BB come in 165mm length crankarms. I also ride fatbikes (started with a Pugsley last year, now Iím on a 9:zero:7), and am looking forward to the day when I can fatbike with my sons.

    My son runs 160mm Middleburn cranks with a 104/64 spider & 32/22 chainrings. These are light & not very expensive. His are Square BB, I know Middleburn does ISIS BB but not sure if thats offered in the 160mm length. Don't waste your time looking for these everywhere, mtbtandems is the only place that I could find them.

    Christmas came early at our house since we have to hit the road tomorrow.

    Anyhow, this is just a test ride but here is our son's first Mountain Bike. It's a 7spd ridged frame w/ 24" wheels from Trek. He just loves it! Santa even through in some DH body youth padding

    Picked this up for my 9yr old. He's fairly tall for his age, and is a total badass helleon on two wheels. He's fast as all get out with this thing.



    Will post pictures of him and I riding as soon as we get the opportunity to get out to the trail.

    New 24er for my oldest boy

    I literally made a 82.7% (24/29) copy of my normal 29er geometry. Except foralittle less BB drop to make sure that there will be clearance with 150mm cranks. 135mm cranks on there now...hoping he'll get a couple of years out of it. The bike works great for him.

    We did a family ride this past New Years day with my sis & her husband. I brought my two boys who have been riding for a full year now & they love it. Luckily, we have a local group who coordinates youth races during the summer & fall. It's been awesome they really encourage young riders to his the trails hard!

    About a month ago I decided to gamble and buy bikes for the entire family. Well, I won. The family loves MTB'ing.

    Here are some pics from our ride this afternoon at Sycamore Canyon in Riverside, CA

    My 14 Year olds new build

    I got my hands on an old 2004 Brodie Thumper to build up for my 14 year old son. He had a Cannondale Trail 6 but managed to put a huge dent on the top tube... needless to say I figured he needed something a little more robust. Thus the Brodie rebuild. Just finished it so he hasn't had a chance to get out on it yet.

    We were finally able to get out and ride our bikes today. We had 15 inches of snow dumped on us last week so the neighborhood roads still aren't completely clear but we couldn't wait any longer. Today was sunny and 38 degrees, a heat wave for us in Alaska.

    Fun in Fruita

    Well, until he ran out of talent on PBR. No tears, though, and he finished the trail plus a few laps on Kessel Run. A very fun day at 18 Road.

    Not mountain biking, but here is my 12 yo son at a recent crit race on his 650 Felt. This coming weekend (Sunday to Monday) we are off to do an overnight bikepacking trip. Also lines up with the most active night of the Lyrid meteor shower (purely coincidence, but super psyched). Will post pics of the trip when we return.

    I wish I could say we rode some great trails today but still to much snow out. So we rode 2 miles around our neighborhood instead. At least it was in the 40's! My son is on the left and a good friend on the right. The friend told me on the ride that he had no rear brakes so didn't want to go down any big hills. I took out my new multi tool and adjusted his rear brakes.

    I took my son who is about to turn 4 to a pump track about an hour from our house to test it out. He really liked it! I am so glad we brought the Hotwalk in addition to his Hotrock 12", pedaling here would have not been fun.

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=2&theater

    I had to bring a full squish 29er trail bike, it was either that or a fatbike, it would have been more fun on a 26" bike but oh well, run what you brung!

    My 6 y.o. daughter asked to join me on a mountain bike ride last week out of the blue. I had no idea she was interested in riding. Went on a short ride with her on a beginner's trail using her tiny bike. I had to drag her away from the small pump track they had built. Since she was close to outgrowing the bike anyway, I decided to upgrade her equipment for the next ride.

    I've never had so much fun going that slow on the trails.

    Not the greatest pic, but a quick snap from our inaugural ride on his new Spawn Banshee.

    He turned 4 a month ago and was outgrowing his Hotrock 12", plus he was really wanting "hand brakes", so we decided it was time. I will say, with him moving to 16" wheels from 12" he is discovering a lot of the benefits I noticed moving from 26" to 29"

    My 4 y.o. son's first venture onto singletrack! He loved it. So glad it was aboard the Spawn Banshee, there would have been moments where a coaster brake like on his Hotrock 12 would have sent him sliding. We went about 3.2 slowish miles, only stopped because it was getting dark.

    Didn't realize there was a subforum just for our kids!!! Gotta find the rest of my pics from this season but here's what's in my phone atm. He's going to be 7 in a couple months. Had him on trails 2 months after his 6th bday which was 2 weeks after getting off training wheels (didnt know about afforded). Rides paved with me all the time too, we have an 8mile loop we do together. Trek mt60 off craiglist I revived into a perfect bike.

    Kid's Mountain or Road Bike Ride Picture Thread

    I took my daughter, who's 10, on my local biking trails. We have been riding the beginner trails at Valmont bike park but this was the first time we would ride "real" mountain bike trails.

    She rode 15 miles and clocked up over 1100ft of climbing. We only walked two hills - most she rode. We also got into a section of rocky single track that was full of baby head rocks and I thought she would walk those but she did not! She was determined to ride and clear the section which is about a 1/4 mile long. A few foot dabs but she rode and cleared it.

    Towards the end of the ride we got a surprise bonus! A couple of horse came to say hi on the trail. She loves horses and they were a great motivation for her to sprint up the last hill of the day.

    Great way to start off my Father's Day weekend.

    Snack stop.

    I modified the crap out of my sonís ING-livery Marin 24" mountain bike. Only thing stock left on it is the frame (well duh!), seatpost, seat, and seatpost collar. Well-made frame. There should be picture of it somewhere within this thread, donít wanna spam everyone again. Instead, how about I spam it with a video of my boy riding up/down some technical stuff:

    I'm pretty new at single track myself but took my 6 year old out with me this morning to Cottonwood here in Vegas. I thought I would get a hard time from the regulars out there but everyone we ran into was supportive and encouraging.
    I think he rocked it for his first time out.

    My 7 & 9 year olds always get heaps of praise when we are out on the trail. Make sure you return the favor whenever you get the chance. Kids love the "your ripping it, keep it up", or "cool bike!".

    A couple shots from recent trips:

    First up was a road trip to Copper Harbor, MI, back in early July. This is my 9 yr old and I before riding The Flow.


    This last week we went out to CO and rode some at Granby Ranch. Photos of the fam cruising down Sweet Nancy. I'm going to start a thread later today with more photos and hopefully some video clips too.




    Oh, and of course the obligatory pump track photo... The boys had almost as much fun on the pump track outside the lodge at Granby Ranch as they did on the XC and DH trails...

    I have my 7 year old daughter to thank for getting back into riding after about a 9-year hiatus. She has had a bike since she was 3 starting with a 12-inch Trek Mystic then moving up to a 16-inch GT Scamp. Admittedly, she was hesitant and generally uninterested with shedding her training wheels. It wasn't until a couple months ago, one day in Sports Authority that she picked up the picture 20-inch Diamondback Tess and started riding it around the store. Impulsively, without research or hesitation, I bought her the bike. I wish I would have done more research and gotten her something lighter and better like the Novara and Marin but I was so thrilled that she had instantaneously learned to ride without training wheels, I didn't care as long as she loved the bike. Since then we have logged well over 100 miles sticking to mostly paved and wide gravel trails with occasional visits to a local mountain bike park. In the process I upgraded my 18-year old Trek 8700 carbon mountain bike for a new GT Karakoram 29er and am looking forward to many years of riding with my baby girl all around Beautiful Colorado.

    Just joined this forum and have so many photos and videos I would like to show.

    However I will be restrained and just do the most recent one. A short clip of my 2 (and three quarters) year old enjoying the short pump track section of our local dirt jumps. Even though he has been riding his pedal bike (no training wheels) for almost 11 months he still likes to play on his balance bikes. They (yes he has two...) are much lighter and easier for him to handle on the fun stuff.

    I just showed my 12yo son this video. This is the type of track he wants to start riding. (He just got his first MTB last month -- a Trek MT220.)

    Right now, he has visions of grandeur to be a professional rider. I told him that he needs to practice and work hard if that is really what he wants to do.

    Your boy is great and was a little inspiration to my son to get out there and work harder.

    Nice Loco! My guy just got a 'DH' bike last week and we hit up Highland for a shake-down before heading up to Maine for some rougher stuff. Finally got my hands on a Grom-Hit and hooked up the suspension for a 65lb-er. Good times!

    Nice! It's great that you're encouraging him to get out and ride! My son's first bike was a hand me down MT220! Great first bike for sure!

    That's a sweet bike! I've been keeping an eye out for one for a while now. Tough to come across. I think I'll have at least another season, maybe two, before I need to start looking at 24" bikes for him.

    Fantastic photos Spacedweller! The bike manufacturer should hire you. And maybe a jeans company as well. That last shot has "4 year old James Dean" written all over it.

    Thank you! Was supposed to take a "new bike and big smile"-pic, but no way. He's looking at the older BMX-boys doing stunts in the background and I guess he needs to be cool in case they look his way...

    Will my son outgrew his strider and his little sister is just getting big enough to throw a leg over and stand with both feet on the ground. Picked up an older 16" hotrock and went to town with a flat black rattle can and some vinyl decals.

    Our kid is having loads of fun doing Utah high school mountain bike racing. They grow up too quick, though.

    Took my boy to the trails today, my favorite place for getting miles in on fast flowing stuff. 6 miles turned out to be a bit much for him (lots of low grade longer climbs with a few short steeps thrown in) so we walked the last 1/3 of a mile but he did awesome!!!





    Excuse the pic quality, wifes new camera and Im not used to it yet,lol, way more options and buttons than the old one lol.

    Milan

    Kid's Mountain or Road Bike Ride Picture Thread-gopr2049.jpgKid's Mountain or Road Bike Ride Picture Thread-dsc01777-1280x719-.jpgThis is my 6 year old son Milan. He doesn't really ride MTBs much at all, as we live in very flat part of the country. He spends most of his time on his BMX bikes, and rides DH MTB on holidays only...

    Here is video of him riding Milan does La Roue Libre Video - Pinkbike

    We had absolutely wonderful time chasing each other down the hill, and chatting on the lift...

    PS: all the information on this part of forum and on Ridemonkey helped as tremendously fitting Milan on a MTB, big thank you to the other parents for sharing all the information.
