    Another XS 14'' China kids 26er build: BXT frameset

    Hello,
    I am starting a slow build of 14" BXT frame for my 7-year-old son his next racing rig.

    Current bill of material:
    14" XS BXT frame
    26" BXT carbon rigid fork
    Stans Podium MMX wheel set on American Classic hubs (converting it to XD driver) - 1260 grams!!!
    KCNC Z6 Steel Quick Release Skewer
    Rocket Ron 26x2.1 tires
    Ashima rotors
    Trailcraft crankset 32T
    WREN Crazy Lightweight 60 mm stem 80 g
    Sram XX1 drivetrain (10-42 cassette is 260 g!)
    KMC X11SL DLC 11 red-black chain (because it looks cool)
    Jagwire shifter cable kit

    Seatpsot: TBD (Bought EC90 with 20 mm setback by mistake and a little concern using EC90 brand, as they pose to be a counterfeit Easton EC90)
    Saddle: TBD (Probably Islabike)
    Handlebars: TBD (Potentially Trailcraft bars)
    Brakes: TBD (Maybe something stupid like Formula or Sram XX)
    Grips: TBD


    Curious what will be the final weight. This thing is going to be stupid light.
    Will post updates as I go forward.

    Look at the J Unit bars/grips. My son's new bike build will has them. He loves how the grips feel in his hands.

    What is the A to C on that fork? I'd love to have a carbon rigid option to swap out with the 80mm SID on my son's bike.
