    Kid's Mountain or Road Bike Ride Picture Thread

    Thought I would start a picture thread for the little tykes.

    Here's our Mother's day ride picture from today.


    Our route and elevation.


    Happy riding.

    Here's their first ride on the new bamboo. Just a ride on a fireroad in Waterton Canyon where the Colorado Trail begins. My daughter has a Manitou Skareb but my son has a temporary fork until I rebuilt his Manitou Mars.

    I made these custom just for the little ones. I'll start a thread about these soon.

    I didn't want to hijack this thread so I'll start another thread soon. It's just a hobby. I'm building just for friends and family. Haven't ridden Ti but it rides much smoother than any steel or alu I've ridden. Just my opinion.

    Iím sure youíd get lots of interest if you started a separate thread on this. Iím very intrigued, especially about the joinery and how you arrived at that geometry. I donít want to hijack this thread either, so Iíll leave it at that

    Well , the 46er 1x8 is the bastard offspring of a 24" Giant MTX, a Late 90's Trek ZX6000 and an assortment of parts bin items I had.
    Shimano STX-RC Rear Hub, Rear Derailleur, Brakes, and Trigger Shifter.
    Rhyno Lite 24" Rear Rim with Kenda small block 8 tire
    Bontrager Race 26" Front wheel with a Geax Saguaro 2.2 tire
    Jamis steel fork
    Sinz crank & BB with a 34t ring and BBG Bashguard
    Blingy Carbon post
    Specialized Rockhopper bars with a Hussefeldt stem.

    It was a winter project. I got both bikes used for $50 each at a LBS. The Giant was close to 30lbs in stock form - down to about 22 or 23 now. It rides and handles very nicely for him. The 26" front wheel gives him good rollover capabilty and he can clear a lot of things he had no chance on with his 20" Pre-Caliber last year. I kept it simple for him with the 1x8. He picked up shifting pretty quickly.

    My son at the Stowe VT Bike park in 2007, at six years old:



    He's eleven now, about five feet tall and 85 pounds, riding an extra small 2003 26" Gary Fisher Tassajara craigslist special.
    Looking for the person who tapped and pinned a set of Shimano A530 pedals - can't find the thread! Shoot me a PM. Thanks!

    We had killer ride this weekend. 12.2miles, almost 1600' of elevation gain, wifey trying out her new 29er, boy endoed, 4' rattle snake, and my boy bragging that he made it through 2 rock gardens that I walked through.

    My little man at our local 4 mile loop. He has pulled this off at night too. He once did 7 miles at elevation, with a 16" singlespeed, that put a hurt on his much older sister and cousins. I keep looking for a 24" FSR Hotrock, but have an XS Titus hardtail in the wings ( can fit like a 24"). A dad's day photo for you too..

    School's out now so have more time to take them out for a spin. Did a little singletrack. Didn't get as far as I wanted but it was a really hot day so they were a little miserable and whiny.






    Nothing like kicking off the shoes and dipping in the river to cool off and boost morale.

    A couple shots from my 8y/o daughter's first kids' group ride at the local trail. My 12y/o was off with the older group; didnt' see him until they were done. It's great for him b/c I've been virtually unable to ride due to back injury this year, so he finally gets to get a good ride in.
    She was kind of hesitant at first, but ended up having a blast. Only she could pull off the kitty helmet
    Bike is a Trek MT60. I'll be changing to 7spd freewheel & ditching the twist shifter this weekend.

    Took the training wheels off my 5 y-o`s bike last week.
    He`s been so eager to follow his 7 y-o brother and dad on the trails!

    The 2 y-o sister didn`t want to stay home either so I brought her in the chariot on the trails! I could hear her laughing as we hit small bumps

    So much fun!

    This is my first post on MTBR and this is my favorite forum for ideas! My 5 y/o dumped his training wheels about 3 weeks ago and was riding single track the next day! Unfortunately, here in the great PNW we are blessed with very hilly terrain that is often damp with slick as snot tree roots and rocks. He rides a 16" Hotrock at the moment and the combo of short cranks and tall gearing, hills are really tough for him. I am planning a mildly built 20" bike for his birthday in September to help combat that. With the aforementioned terrain he really needs a 9 speed with good low gearing to make the trails more fun!

    This is my son. He is 7 and he's on his new MEC Dash. Specs are here for those who are interested: MEC Dash Bicycle (Kids') - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available

    Now that he has this 20" geared bike his riding is soooo much faster and enjoyable than when he had to ride his heavy single speed 16" bike. I guess it was good for his endurance though because our bike rides have suddenly doubled in distance.

    I am loving all the pics of the kids riding. I can't wait to get my kids out riding. My little girl (well I guess she isn't so little anymore at 15.) is currently riding a Fuji sunfire. My son who is now 10 has a Trek mountain lion, unfortunatly he has outgrown it. I am going to have to find him a new bike. Keep posting folks.

    My 8yr old son on his Hotrock 20 with XT drivetrain and a cutdown crank so he can have 2 front chain rings. Lets him climb steep stuff on real trails with my wife and I. Furthest he's gone is 12 miles of trails and wanted more. Going to move him up in bike size soon... he just hit a growth spurt. But he can man handle his hotrock 20 really well right now and I know the larger size will hinder him on the trails we're riding currently. So dad is strategically plotting the next cool bike he will get. I figure I've only got a few years untill he is better than me.

    First ride on the new bike. Unfortunately still not cleared to ride from the broken arm so it was pretty tame. Also a pic of him just after he got an autograph by Jens Voigt at the USA Pro Challenge. Also a pic of my daughter with Kloden

    This thread is awesome I know it is supposed to be about pictures of the kids bike, but I looked at all the pictures at least 3 times and I couldn't tell you one thing about any of the bikes (except for those crazy cool bamboo ones). All I see and think about is the kids out riding and canít wait until I can take mine out. Keep em coming!

    I think this thread is supposed to be about pics of the kids rides, not pics of their bikes. Not being critical or anything, that's just how I interpreted the subject line. Anyway, I agree, it's a great thread!

    Just got back from Mammoth Mtn. Looking back, I should have brought his body armor and full face helmet. The mountain is insanely rocky with lots of shelf trails. He had a great time!
