    My boys have outgrown 24" - need to find a light 26"

    Any suggestions for a real singletrack capable bike with 26 or 27" wheels. Ive looked and there are so many bikes that are tanks with horrible forks.
    Have been scanning the classifieds for a small or xs

    Way too many choices out there without you narrowing them down with a little more information. Like, how much you want to spend and what kind of riding they like to do, for a start.

    Mine got a lightly used Ibis Mojo SL with SLX/XT bits and a Revelation fork for his first 26". It's light enough and works great for the riding he likes. I see them out there for a couple grand regularly.

    There is a sweet 12" Barracuda with a Manitou and LX/XT build on the Classic MTB Trader Facebook Page right now. $250. Get on it.
