    New Build- Access XCL

    Well two years after building up my son his 24" Hotrock, at 9 he has gotten to where a 26" will work well. After a ton of research, digging through my boxes of parts, some good ebay deals, and upgrading a few things on my own bikes (Dad is going to 2x10), his new hardtail has started going together. It should hit under 25 pounds and hopefully last 3 years before we need to a frame upgrade.

    Very nice.

    My son is currently outgrowing his 24" bike. I'll be following in your footsteps soon.

    All built up and heading out to China Camp for a shakedown run. 24 pounds, 10 oz, and kept it under $1k (ouch).

    Cary, really nice build. I've ordered the same frame for my son. He is 4'8" and I've ordered the 14.5" size. Would you mind letting me know if that size sounds right based on your experience?

    New Build- Access XCL

    I just ordered an Ascent frame from Performance myself. I went with the ascent because it was 14" vs. 14.5". When I stood my son over his Moms 15" it was pretty tight up against the boys.
