    Who makes a frame with v brake bosses?

    I'm finally upgrading to a 29er and would love to get an xs frame for my son and move everything over from my 26" bike. It's 12 years old but it has some redeeming qualities. The v brakes do an okay job stopping my 300+ LBS, so they will do great on his 95 LBS. It also has Deore XT 3X8 drive train and a Rockshox air fork. I would have to upgrade BB cranks, bars etc, but I can do it all cheaper than buying him a new bike.

    BikeIsland.com - Bicycle Parts, Accessories and Clothing at Affordable Prices with Free Shipping looks pretty good.

    actually, that drive side chainstay on the trek looks questionable.

    the raleigh isnt a GREAT frame, but itll do.

    meh.

    Who makes a frame with v brake bosses?

    Thanks for looking for me. Of the options, I think I like the Performance option the best, but I don't think he's big enough for a 14.5" frame yet. Even though he's 11, he's pretty short for his age.

    That's why I'd go w the Raleigh.

    If the trek frame looked better, I'd go that route.

    The seat isn't even slammed all the way.

    Looks like about 1 1/2" inches of seatpost.
