    List of disc compatible kids frames (<=24" wheel)

    I'd like to compile a list of the known [rear] disc compatible kids frames 24" wheel size or smaller. So if you know of some, please help me by posting the frames below, I'll try to keep the thread updated if we end up with more than a few. Thanks for the help!

    So to begin:
    Specialized Hotrock A1 FS (24")
    Scott Spark JR/RC JR (24")


    Can someone confirm if the Marin frames have mounts?
    Marin Bayview Trail (24") <-- ?? confirm ??
    Marin Hidden Canyon (20") <-- ?? confirm ??

    For the Marin 24 it has to be the SE version that is no longer made.

    My son is currently riding a 20" wheeled Gary Fisher Precaliber that has disc brake mounts, but I have XT Vee brakes on it.
    I recently got a GF Tyro (not sure what year) with 24" wheels and a cheesy steel frame that also has disc brake mounts, but now that I have the bike home and I see how heavy the frame is, I think it may not be worth building up.

    I just saw that Marin at REI and the 20" version is on V-brakes. It's also a pretty heavy bike.

    I got one of these used about 3 years ago for $75 shipped, it was one of the best bike deals I ever got.

    My daughter has a Marin Bayview trail that came from the factory with mechanical disc brakes, so yes, compatible.

    That is the Bayview Trail SE model, other Bayview trails do not have the disc brake tabs on the rear of the frame.

    I was really surprised that for a 24 inch bike Marin actually bothered to make 2 different frames.

    2008 Bayview Trail SE model:

    renewing this conversation and does anyone have a disc frame available as frame only? Looking to build my daughter a 24 inch after I built her 20 inch 2 years ago and I'm looking to go full custom this time.

    Can't help on frame only, but for current disc compatible 24" bikes, here are a few:

    Cannondale Race 24
    Specialized Hotrock 24 Disc
    Giant XTC Jr 0 - disc only I believe, available in Canada
    Marin Bayview Trail 24 Disc

    List of disc compatible kids frames (&lt;=24" wheel)

    The Rocky Mountain Edge 24 and Vertex 24. Both bikes use the same frame and have the disc tabs but the Vertex comes with discs standard.
