    Here's my two boys riding with me at Gap Creek, Brisbane. There's a couple of crashes near the end of the video that big brother finds very amusing.

    We had a great ride last Wednesday. Only 5 deg C but plenty of sun and hardly any wind.

    My Youngest daughter is the same; first reaction is to laugh when she sees a wipeout. When I obce pointed out that this wasn't a very charitable act and that she should go and check that all are ok first she gave me an exasperated look and told me that everybody laughs at crashes on youtube.
    The next couple of times she crashed I started laughing, she got annoyed and really didn't appreciate my comments about everybody laughs at crashing on Youtube. Got the message across though, seems to have realised that real life crashing hurts and is not the same as youtube

    Hello All... so great to see so many young rippers out there.

    Here's a fun video I put together of my 3yo son riding skinnies, teeter totters, stairs, and mountain biking on Vancouver's North Shore. Hope y'all enjoy!

    Cool video, thanks for sharing! Here is my 8 year old on one of the more tricky parts of our home track. Unfortunately we don't have as much elevation as most others but we just have to do with it

    Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it.

    Here's a short clip I took shortly after compiling that video, of him riding down an entire staircase... a bit crazy and he's since been working on standing on his pedals so he doesn't get bounced around as much.

    We haven't been doing much (okay, any!) mountain bike riding lately. But, my 6 and 10 year olds just joined a triathlon team and my daughter, the 6 year old, is absolutely overjoyed with her new ride, a 20" wheel Alubike. I thought you guys would appreciate it. We don't know any road bike folks, so I'll share our excitement here.


    My son is on a Felt F24, which I'm pretty sure is in this thread, but back many pages.

    Spring has sprung!


    Awesome day riding with my son at a local mtb spot that also has a great pumptrack. (He's 10, and rides an 18" Premium for park/pumptrack/DJ stuff).



    He came up with a line new in an area I was doing some fine tuning on. It's meant to ride as a big berm, but once I got shaped and packed nice and smooth, he saw step-up. Who am I to argue?

    Practice run (sorry for the slo-mo)




    Nailed it!

    Loving the pics as always - and it is lovely to see the progress they make

    Here is one of my 8 year old - we recently picked up an old Norco B-Line. He is loving the full suss.

    We had another great ride yesterday at the Zeist (NL) track. About 10 miles if mostly singletrack.







    Too bad the pancake restaurant at the starting point was closed.

    He had a Downhill race on Sunday and he won the under 10 category! He took a whole 18 seconds off his last year's time (over a sub 3 minute course) despite the torrential rain.

    Loving your vids! He is smooth and has flow! How old is he?

    He turned 5 in January. I definitely never expected he would be riding this well already. It's going to be a fun summer.

    Some pictures of our daughter with her balance bike (in chronological order):





    I can hardly wait to see how she's riding her 12"-bike. It is built and handed over but still a little bit to large.

    ^^^Those are sweet looking bikes! Took me a bit to figure out who the manufacturer was. All their bikes look killer: Supurb

    Do you know if they ship to the US? Is there an english version of their website?

    Well recognized, although there isn't much left of the original bike, a Supurb BO12.
    Here are some more pictures.
    I don't know if they ship to the US. I would suggest to ask Basti on facebook directly. Send greetings from me.

    Looking for a 20inch suspension fork.

    My son is getting to the point where he needs a suspension bike, unfortunately a full suspension bike is out of my budget so looking for alternatives is the only option at this point. Any idea/suggestion is welcome.

    Great day of riding today at the open weekend at Blue Mtn park in PA.

    Kid's Mountain or Road Bike Ride Picture Thread-blue-mtn.jpg

    Here is a vid of him riding today. The video doesn't do it justice on how steep and how rocky/loose some of the sections were. Progression and confidence really increased since last summer. He was able to ride all blue/intermediate runs and a couple of black diamonds. I forgot to charge the go pro, so didn't capture him riding more of the technical runs.

    Nice! I don't suppose you have by any chance used the rental Kona Stinky at Bryce? I was wondering how the two bikes compare. The Stinky 24 is a pig...

    No, but the Commencal Supreme 24 is a PIG too, I have done some upgrades to it, but it is still heavy @ 32 lbs. If I change out tire from DH w/ tubes and go with rocket ron tubeless could shave another 5 lbs.There is a kid that rides the KONA stinky that rips up there. The weight is not holding him back.

    That's crazy...the Commencal website lists the 24 FS Supreme at 29.7lbs. I figured it weighed more though.

    That kid is probably little Corey. His father runs Bike Patrol there (which I do as well). He's 11 and rips every trail there. He rides with my 10yo son when I can bring him up there...but he's not on Corey's level.

    Mine is not at Corey's level yet either. I am working on mine on the drops, slowly building his confidence. Then he will be able to hit all the runs.

    he is running 2013, which came in stock at almost 37 lbs. I believe the 2014 and newer frames are not as beefy, so they were able to shave some weight. They also went with air shocks for front and back vs coil.

    If I had to do it over again, i would have went with lil shredder because of weight.

    We will need to meet up with you one weekend.. the boy and I have both have season passes.

    This week my youngest stayed home so I could adapt to the speed of my oldest son Thomas (12 years). We had a great ride of 34.5 km with a 8.5 km ride to the 15 km trail, thus not needing the car to drive up there. The weather was amazing but the track is getting too sandy.



    If everything goes according to plan my youngest boy will have a Trailcraft bike and I am sure this will change a lot for his riding

    Kind regards,

    Clemens

    I work a third job up there as a bike patroller, and I bring my kid up there with me as often as I can. I'm working the race on Sunday, and the boy will probably go as well. I'll keep an eye out the for Commencal...with that color, it's hard to miss.

    Bryce just got three of the new Trek Fuel EX Jr's to rent, and my 10yo got to be there first to take one out. He liked it more than the Stinky, claiming the lower weight as the best part. It's a pretty good looking bike. I'm still leaning towards getting him the new Kotori from Spawn if I can talk him into a hardtail. I like the Transition Ripcord and the Commencal for FS....but he likes the Trek, so we'll see how it plays out.

    He was pretty confident on the Trek yesterday...started doing his first wooden features, and was clearing the tabletops on Brew thru easily.

    My daughter has been on two wheels not very long, not quite a year. But we recently upgraded from a 16" inch Cleary to a 20" inch Cleary. She's been doing great with these light bikes. Went for a six mile paved trail ride as soon as we picked it up.

    Nice family bike day yesterday.

    Took my recently 11 y/o son to some trails where my dad has been heavily involved with building for a number of years. First real ride on his first really sweet trail bike and finally on 26" wheels (also thanks to grandpa, who has gone 29). First time I really felt he truly enjoyed trail riding without a chairlift involved; usually I'm pretty sure he's just humoring me, but something clicked for him yesterday and I'm psyched. No trail pics, but the rig is pretty sweet.



    Did a few miles of trail riding, then hit the adjoining pumptrack to meet up with my folks and aunt visiting from Austria. Had three generations out there messing around on bikes in the dirt, and even got mom into the act, at least for a pic.













    Had a great time, went out together and chowed Mexican food, my son and I swung by the skatepark on the way home to finish out the day in style. Good frigging times I must say. (And I actually do have a right eye; I must've been blinking dust out or something in the pic )

    Great pics and video's! Here is a video from me and my boys (12 and almost 9) riding in Italy, Livigno area:

    https://youtu.be/yPevH7BHUbk

    We rode down the red trail from the Passo di Valle Alpisella to Lago di St Giacomo di Fraele



    There was a nice restaurant near the lake side where we had a plate of pasta before we tackled the next climb. In total we rode 42 km and climbed 1550 meters! Livigno is an amazing area for mountainbikers.

    Kind regards,

    Clemens, Thomas & Mathis

    Back home, we did a lap on our local trail Geestmerambacht. A very nice meandering trail with nice berms, a few wooden obstacles and loads of rabbits!







    In total the trail is 8 km, the ride overthere too so with the ride back it's 24 km, just right for a ride after dinner.

    It was the first offroad trail Mathis did here in NL on the Trailcraft Pineridge 24 and it went very well. He managed to ride all the stunts and even rode down a steep hill he didn't dare to ride before on his 20" Hotrock. Livigno was a great (albeit hard) learning school.

    Kind regards,

    Clemens

    Custom Scott Spark 20 Junior build - end result

    Hi

    Here's a few photos of the custom Scott Spark 20 Jr that I built with advice from folks on MTBR and singletrackworld.com. It's for my 6 year old daughter (and then her younger sister).

    I really need to finish a full build write up but in short, I started with an old, fairly beaten up second hand bike and after stripping it and giving it a new powder coating (with sparkle top coat!), and then spending more time and money on it than I expected, it now looks like this.

    My 2 (7 & 9) riding the pump track at the Kalamunda Circuit in Perth, Western Australia

    It was my daughter's second time offroad and first time on this bike & her improvement in the hour they spent riding in circles was huge

    Took my son (9) riding in Frisco, CO. The trail was beautiful. Unfortunately my son crashed. He dusted himself off and carried on. Then he crashed again on the same injury. That was the end of the ride. Still it was nice and he had fun while it lasted.

    I love how my older son's BMX and trail riding is intersecting now. He's raced for 2 years and is now trail riding with some friends from his age group.

    Labor Day weekend ride. Our local BMX track crew on a mountain bike ride. Somehow we missed a kid in this photo. Kids ages 4 to 10. 8 kids, 4 dads, 3 hours of single track, jump line, then BBQ and pool party. What more could you want?

    I have been on the RAC Ride Across California for a number of years. It take 5th graders from the border of California at Yuma to the beaches in San Diego. We also call it the River to Riptide. I have been doing it since 2006. My kids have continued by volunteering which allows me to continue as well.

    Thanks!
    This was shot in early June so about a month or so before the camps started up. All four kids have progressed so far beyond this now its unreal. We would love to hook up. There is a growing group of groms there and they are always excited about riding with new friends.

    Here are a couple of pictures of him from more recently.

    Midweek afternoon ride with the kids and another riding family. Ages 4-8. My 6 year old decided that he wanted to be the photographer today. I just gave him the camera and then left him alone. He chose the B&W effect and took all the shots. Not bad.

    My 4 year old on FS mountain bike MAD6

    I love the bamboo bikes, Based on kids bike being pretty crappy, I also set about making a bike for my 4 year old daughter and got a bit carried away. I have posted a pic of her first race bike we called the M1 (or Mad1) things have developed and she has moved onto the MAD6 which has proven a triumph in being able to go for a ride and she now keeps up.

    Hello

    I would like to introduce you my project for my son. It's a very small 24" bike that can be ridden from about 6years or 1,15m. Like a 29er for kids.



    In the meantime, I found a small german bike company that will actually sell this bike complete or frame set. The complete bike is equipped with full SRAM GX, full carbon fibre for or RST First Air. With rigid forks, the weight is only 8kg

    I hope you like it!

    If you are able to speak German, you can find more info here MAX - ein sportliches und leichtes Kinderbike - VPACE Bikes and here Neues 24" Bike von Max, VPACE und mir | MTB-News.de

    Roadie stuff !!!

    Posted their MTB's a while back on this thread, since that they have started doing triathlons and duathlons. So I picked up a 42cm roadie for $250 of bicycle buy-sell on facebook, great buy with Shimano 105.

    So I took them to the outdoor Velodrome to learn how to ride it, brake and change gears... and started timing them. The fastest they can do a 500m lap on their Kona Shred MTB's was 1:25, they could belt around on the roadie in 52 seconds, that was 33 seconds quicker for 500m, the kids distance on the duathlon/triathlons is 6km ride, so a potential 6 minuets quicker on the little road bike for the ride leg of their dua/tri.

    So I kept an eye out and picked up another one, a Giant TCR size 44-46 for $350 with Shimano 105 again.

    Both bikes are full size 700c, I bought a couple of zero reach stems, dropped the seats right down and they fit beautifully. Got a bit of room to grow too... and the speed they are growing, wont be long till they are riding my bikes.

    My boys are 9 & 10 BTW
