    I REALLY love Optic Nerve's "photomatic" photochromics. I have a somewhat small face and they have a couple of these models that fit me well. My 11 year old son has been wearing a pair of their Eyeque photochromic glasses for a while. They start out with a really light tint and go really dark on bright days. They're ~$50 full-price, but I usually find coupons online and have ordered right from their online store. The lenses seem to scratch sort of easily, but for $50 I'm not too upset if I have to buy a new pair every year. They get a lot of use with all of the cycling and running I do.

    We live in the mountains and have one of the worlds top premier freeride trails but it's not real condusive to kid riding so we have to pack up the truck and wheel out to find a length of trail that is somewhat flat comparibly and ride that spot for a while. When the kids get older and have a bunch of experience under their belts, (along with some full suspension bike's), they're going to really appreciate their backyard.

    Oh & daughter wanted to show the bike she wants some day. Daddy's FSR.
    Might have a year or two before she steals her daddies bike

    My son after a good climb on the wintu trail. He loves to ride even though he has actually outgrown his 20" Diamondback. Ive been looking for a used scott scale jr 24. Anyone know where I can find one?

    Getting ready for the Day of the Tread ride this past weekend. We rode the 26 mile segment. Tons of fun, though pretty chilly at first. My 12 year old son rides an aluminum Felt with 650b wheels. A nice, tight, speedy ride. His school has a multi-sports program which has been great. He rides between 30 and 60 miles a week.


    His other ride (an older Novara Arroyo - 90's?) A great CL buy @ $50!


    And the whole family

    Getting ready to ride the Corral Loop in South Tahoe with the 3 year old for the first time. The 2 year old really wanted to come too, but her flintstone brakes wont cut it on that trail

    Love this tread and can not wait for the time when I can post pictures of my son and his ride...my old riding buddies laugh at me because I do not ride hard and worry about dropping people on a ride...They do not get it...NONE of that compares to riding with your kids.

    On this ride my son Ty, my wife & myself started in the town of Penticton BC in Western Canada and climbed a huge mountain for 2 hours to reach the Rusty Muffler trail head which had us downhilling for one hour on awesome singletrack. Stopped at a bridge on Marmot trail for a snack.
    Not bicycle related but a cool shot of him on his KTM SX 65 from a cross-country race he was in that he won.

    Few questions for you:

    1) Is that a Mukluk? Cannot really tell from the mega-small framesize
    2) How tall is your kid?
    3) Is it safe to assume it is the XS (extra small) frame size?
    4) Stem length? 0° offset seatpost? Details? Etc.?

    Recently built up a “mini half-semi-fat” bike for my son who just turned eight years old. Marin Bayview Trail 24" wheel bike. I built up a 24"x2.5" Surly Large Marge running a 24"x3" Nokian Gazzaloddi for the front (running an Avid BB7 brake) with a Surly 1x1 fork (cantilever bosses chopped off). I’d thought about building up a size XS 9:zero:7 but the whole notion of “what if his passion for cycling dies out” came to mind so I figured I’d let him ride this bike into the ground first:

I’d thought about building up a size XS 9:zero:7 but the whole notion of “what if his passion for cycling dies out” came to mind so I figured I’d let him ride this bike into the ground first:
    This is the demo bike from my lbs so it hasn't been fully customized yet. It currently has a really short 45° stem and too narrow bars.
    He is 4'6" with really long legs and the bike is an XS Mukluk.
    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.

    I think 110 bcd limits me to 32 or 33 teeth, he probably needs more like 22 or 23 teeth to get any kind of hill climbing. I am seriously considering Profile Racing cranks even though they cost a fortune. I may also see how he copes with the long cranks.
