    New Bike for 10 Year Old Girl

    Started checking out a new bike for my to be 10 year old. She's coming from a steel Trek little kids bike (lever brakes) that she has pounded well!!

    Looking to get her on trail with a front shock. She liked Trek Precaliber 24 but that was online shopping. I showed her (my choice anyway) was a Liv STP 24 but she hated the only color. mint green. Can't blame her for that one.

    Suggestions???

    My daughter is 10.5 now and almost sized out of her 24+ bike we got for her a few years back. Depending on her size and growth rate I would see if she can get on a small or maybe extra small adult bike. The small at least will last much longer than a 24 inch bike as she grows.

    That is an excellent point. Thanks.

    Going through this with my 9 year old daughter now. She's been riding the roscoe 24+ but ready for a bigger bike. Take a look at the trek marlin 5 or 6 in x small., they even make a roscoe in xsmall if you want something bigger.

    I bought Marlin 7's for my two sons 2 years back. The Marlin's have held up well to some heavy abuse.

    My almost 9yr old has a Cleary Meerkat that she likes a lot. Herís doesnít have a suspension fork (yet), but thatís easy enough...Cleary might even be able to upgrade.

    A BUNCH more $$$$, but Trailcraft makes some NICE bikes.

    For a 10 year old I would look at Woom OFF Air 6 AND they are available to pre-order for December delivery: https://us.woombikes.com/products/offair6

    ... or you can splurge and get a Trailcraft Timber 26

    I looked at the Konas when we were shopping for a 24" a few months back. For $750 I would expect better gearing, shorter cranks and an air fork. Swapping those out will quickly put you well over $1k all in. For that kind of money, I think there are better options to consider.
