    First time riding with suspension fork

    My 7 y/o boy couldn't stop smiling for the rest of the day. We rode trails in San Diego many times and Big Bear few times but the last time we rode in Big Bear he complained a lot about his hands after riding a rigid 20inch street BMX bike (Haro Z20) for hours so I decided to get a 24 for with 100mm travel and put it in his Z20, also I got a front disc brake and a flat handlebar and I didn't realize that I was building a little badass. Yesterday was the first ride and was a success, enjoy the photos.

    Here is my boy, he just turned 12 and is 4'11. I am advocate of keeping the kids on a smaller bike/wheels (24") to help build riding skills/confidence. The plan is to move him up to a Kona Process 167 this spring.

    Pic from few weeks ago at the watershed in md riding the push/freeride trails.

    Here is a vid from last weekend at Bryce Resort hitting one of their advance trails Pickleback to Copperhead... hitting all the drops/features. Resort open for X-mas weekend, since we had mild winter so far.

    A not so sunny day out on Dartmoor with my 8 year old on his new Orbea Team MX24 with new lighter disc wheels and SID forks. Covered nearly 8 miles and loved his new bike.

    Looks like he's enjoying it! Is that in Wales? We're planning a riding trip down that way in the spring and my kids would love that.

    Our first ride of season and couldn't ask for better weather. Here is my 12 yr old on his NS Bikes Clash Jr. hitting the jumps at South Germantown jump/pumptrack park in MD. Looked good for being off the bike for winter.

    Here's my daughter on her new ride. Amazing how much more interested in riding she is now that she's on a proper fitting bike that doesn't weigh a ton.

    My son starting out on a used Stryder at 2 years old. He took to it immediately and I knew from that point on he loved bikes. He just turned 4 and I got him a Commencal Ramones 16, what an amazing bike. As soon as i pushed him off from the seat he started riding... amazing how kids who start out on balance bikes can figure out peddle bikes without training wheels. Anyway thanks for all the informative posts. If it were not for this forum I would have just bought a Supercycle.

    My grandson started on a balance bike last Fall, when he was 2. Balance bikes are the way to go! I made a short video of some of his riding spots.

    Just got back from my first trip to the Whistler Bike Park with my 8 year old son Lucas. We mostly rode B-Line, Crank It Up, and Heart of Darkness. We would have done A-Line, but it was just too busy to safely take him down. He is riding the 20" Spawn Cycles Savage 2.0 with a new Spinner 300 air fork. He had wrist problems after 3 days of riding (like everyone who rides Whistler) but other than that I'm amazed we both got away unscathed. It was a dream come true to ride with him at the best place on earth!

    Wife bought this 24" from store that was going outta business for 21 bucks! Front wheel was taco'd, shifters were sorry and hard to turn, front der was shot, and cassette had fallen apart (bike was a return). I replaced FD, chain, brake/shifter cables, shifters (shimano trigger-type instead of ridiculous twisters!), fixed cassette, and replaced front wheel. Still less than $100. Gave it a mini-tune and now she's ready to shreddy.

    My daughter is 13, but still pretty short. This bike was a great fit and when she grows out of it, no biggie.
    I love 'Murica!

    Went to Highland Mtn last week for the first time in a while with my son (12 now). They've got a bunch of DJ terrain in addition to lift access trails; nice option, specially when my nerves had had enough of trying to keep up with the kid on the big stuff higher on the mountain.

    Awesome, one day we will get to Whistler. My boy's new 20" is on a truck somewhere between Reno and SLC, but the damn tracking info just says "Pending" for the estimated delivery date. Pleeaaase get here by Saturday, oh please oh please oh please. I'll post more when we actually get the bike, but it's going to be awesome. I might be more excited than he is.

    I thought the same thing when I looked at the pics. Maybe it's the angle?...
    But I can assure u that the tires are indeed 20x1.95

    This past weekend Weston did his first strider race at the BMX track. He is just 2 yrs old (25 months, he has been riding for 12 months now). We went Friday night to spectate the Nationals and play around and he demanded, "My bike race NOW!" so we signed him up for Saturday. He had fun.

    https://youtu.be/2foLgGNdN1w

    I was shocked he was one of the only kids without a FF helmet. We now have that on the list for Xmas!
    Try to be good.

    A full face helmet and set of gloves will save many tears and be a good investment. Fly, Fox, Kali and THH all make good light options with reasonable ventilation.
    A set of elbow pads will also be worth the investment once he starts moving a bit faster.

    My 7 year old has been wearing a full face helmet since he was 2. He likes it and chooses it over his TLD A1 lid. He was wearing it at a birthday party at a local indoor skate park on Friday night when another kid asked why. His reply - "Its really comfy and I like my teeth". The bike specific full face helmets are comfortable, light and not too hot.

    New to the forum! My little 7 year old on a 15 mile ride a few weeks ago. Proud of him and glad to find fellow parents excited to get their kids in the woods on two wheels!



    Finishing his last race of his first season!

    My 8.5 year old son on his christmas present, Islabike Creig 26".
    Bicycle stores are really bad when it comes to childrens bikes in Sweden, all of them has three gears front etc. This is 1x10 and comes with 26" wheels:

    A pic from yesterday's rip through the local trails. He loves his little electric moto! Funny, it is only when he stops riding that I am reminded he just had his 2nd birthday. Love watching him shred!

    My biggest daughters (almost) finished bike. Weight at the moment is 21,8lbs (9,9kg) with pedals. I would like to change the crankset and BB to a Deore HT. That would require me to cut, drill and tap but that is ok because it would shave a lot of weight. Might change the skewers to some chinese titanium too.

    The spec is:
    Scott Voltage JR frame, powdercoated metallic blue according to my daughters wishes.
    Alienation Deviant 24" (id25) rims with Shimano LX hubs, DT Rev spokes and alu nipples.
    Schwalbe Rocket Ron 24" tires
    Schwalbe SV7C tubes
    Easton Haven Carbon Riser bar, cut down to ~580mm
    KCNC Flyride 60mm stem
    ZEE rear derailleur (short cage is nice for ground clearance)
    ZEE shifters
    SLX 11-36 cassette
    On One NW 30t chainring
    Raw BBG bashguard
    Suntour JR Crankset with Shimano BB, square taper
    Deore brakes and rotors
    Chinese ESI copies
    Chinese headset
    Chinese seatpost clamp
    Chinese Carbon seatpost
    Velo saddle
    Wellgo flat pedals

    A lot less than you think... unless you find some really old Deore they are hollow so you end up with Zee which has a boat anchor spindle .... you save on the BB but the spindle makes up for most of the savings

    At 140mm there's about 20g between a UN55 with cut down SRAM 600s and HT2 BB and cut down Zee cranks.

    I'm considering cutting some anyway and then filling the cranks with aluminium epoxy that can be machines and tapped if I hit the hollow part ...

    The current setup (crank+BB) weighs 941g.

    A BB for a 24mm axle about 100g. An uncut Deore crank (non hollow forged but with 24mm axle) weighs about 650g, plus BB would be ~750g in total.

    So I would guess in total it should shave ~300g when cut down.

    For a kid I think a cut down SLX crankset might work to even though they are hollow forged. Should work to fill the end with epoxy. That would shave 50g extra over a Deore crankset.

    Weighed cut SRAM (to 140mm) + NW chainring + BB and end screws was 860g .. UN55 (118mm) by itself is about 300g from memory..

    Weighed uncut 165 mm Zee (albeit with plastic bags still on ) + BB was 898g .. of course you are cutting off the heavier pedal mounts (I seem to remember these with the cut-off were about 25g each .. ) so that's 848g if memory serves on the weight of the cut off parts

    So a rather disappointing 12g or so.. though I suspect rather overspecced for my 7yr old... I doubt he is going to break them anytime soon ...

    I've got the cut-offs and the scale in the shed but its chucking it down...(and the Deore cranks are inside) but I'll give them all a weigh

    my boy has been begging to ride the pedal bike that was waiting for him to be able to reach the ground. his Strider and Stacyc have tons of miles on them and he started riding the 50cc with training wheels so I figured it was time to let him loose on the pedals....

    Moab

    My boys are 11 and 9 and we have been doing a spring trip to Moab for the last three years. This year was the best by far. The boys' skill levels have really improved, with my oldest able to clean all the climbs on Slickrock.

    This is going to be a good summer.
