    First Impression, VAAST 24" Magnesium frame HT for 6yo, Deore 10sp, air fork

    Hit up the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival with the 6yo today to demo and size up some bikes as he has outgrown his Vitus 20"+ in just one year, we loved the bike. I had read about the Magnesium framed VAAST, it is under the Niner umbrella and fit him really well with room to hopefully get 2 years out of it! We got the only one currently in the country but I'd keep an eye out for this as an option, i'm really pleased so far. Way better then anything I had at that age, or before I was 20???

    Full 10 speed Deore and the suntour front air fork, hangs at just over 25 lbs without anything done but a ss king cage. Just hit up the flow track so far as the trails up here in Flagstaff are still muddy with snow, the ride back up to the top of the flow coursewas easy for him and he had another climbing gear to go. I'll update as we ride it more, still deep in the ski season for another few weeks...

    Looks nice -- would be even nicer if they were available frame-only.

    What's the price point? There are a few decent/really nice 24" hardtails. Price point seems to be the interesting point. The Vitus Nucleus 24" airfork is back for 499$ which is similar and 25lbs. It'd be nice if there was a USA version of that.
