    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.

    Must have crossed that stream a dozen of times or so, just for pure fun.

    And a quick shot of the bikes. You can see I'm a DB fan!

    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.

    On a balance bike ride. Don't ask we why we used safety vests but no helmets. I don't have a good answer.
