    SX Trail build for my 12 year old

    We're taking a trip to Angelfire bike park over Labor day and the rental bikes at the other parks we have been to this summer are hit and miss for kid that is 5'1" and about 110 lbs, So we decided to build him a bike. Found a used 2012 Specialized SX Trail locally on craigslist, kept some of the parts and hit the parts bin pretty hard, but then found a lot of others on ebay and pinkbike. We were stoked to find this Rockshox Totem 180 practically new for a steal. Also 26" wheels are flooding the market right now, got these Arch's with Hope hubs for $250!! This bike now fits him perfectly and is a true park bike, he is stoked. Ride report to follow.

    Nice build. Proper hardcore for a 12 year old!

    Out of interest, what's the yellow bike on the RH side of the top photo?

    Looking great, what a bargain for the forks.

    Is the yellow bike a Commencal?
