I recently bought my 7 year old a Transition Ripcord. I chose the Ripcord, primarily because it has the lowest standover height of all the "solid" 24" full suspension bikes. Unfortunately, at over 30.1 lbs, it's a bit heavy in stock form.
So I end putting the bike on a diet in order to get the weight down a bit. I swapped out a few parts, some of which were new, and some of which were in my parts stash:
Bars: Easton EA90SL, 20mm rise, 635mm width
Stem: Syntace Megaforce 2, 40mm
Saddle: T.H.E. Industries Icon youth saddle
Seatpost: Niner carbon, zero offset
Wheels: Stans Crest MkIII, 24/F 28/R; Bitex hubs; Sapim Race spokes; alloy nipples.
Cassette: Sram XX 10 speed,11-36T
Skewers: Ebay titanium.
Tires: Schwalbe Rapid Rob (set up tubeless)
Final weight is 23 lbs, 13oz. My son loves it and he can climb well.
