Specialized Myka 26 Hardtail for kids?
My daughter will be nine in a month. She is 4' 4" and still fine on her ScottaScale 20. She has another 3" I can pull the seat up. I compared an XS Myka and a 24" kids mtn bike at a LBS side by side the seat height and reach looked the same. The Myka had a little longer wheelbase. The Mykas, especially the stepthrough one seem to have the shortest standover height and toptube length.
Depending on how my daughter grows I would like to skip 24" bikes. I also figure I can get her 2" raised handle bars and a longer seat stem for the Scott.
Have any of you tried this? Thanks Bill
