    Cannondale 27.5 XS build

    Just starting a build for my 10 year old son. My 7 year old daughter will be moving onto his 24 bike after after we do a new build on that.

    Scored a 27.5 Cannondale Catalyst frame off eBay a few weeks ago. He has been riding off-road since he was 6 so its time for a real bike. Most of the parts are from the parts bin, but they should do.

    Specs so far

    2017 Cannondale Catalyst XS
    Rockshox Recon Gold Fork 100mm
    160mm Suntour Zeron crank 30t
    Giant SXC-2 Wheels
    THE Jr. BMX Saddle
    Giant bars cutdown
    45mm wake stem
    DK bmx pedals

    I will post more pics later tonight

    How tall is your son? Which 24 bike was he riding before?

    He is 49. He was riding a Girls Mt220 from the late 2000s ( not the recalled one). We test rode an XS earlier this summer and he handled it just fine.

    13"-14" cheap 27.5" frames are gems for the 9-12 yo range. Good find!
