    Scott contessa jr 24 build

    Spent a lot time looking over all the cool builds and learned a lot so I decided to go for it with a contessa jr I found on Craigslist for $180 in perfect condition. Started at 27 lbs and currently weighs in at 21lbs. Built up for my daughter who just turned 7. Her older brother rides a Cannondale trail 24 which is a great bike but the head tube angle is a bit too steep for his riding now. Thanks to all the dads for their posts.

    SRAM 1x10 drivetrain x7/x9
    Rst f1rst fork
    Schwalbe rocket ron tires
    Chinese carbon bars and aluminum 40mm stem
    Alibaba 127mm direct mount cranks w/32t

    You could probably add an extra 20mm of travel (like 80mm SID) without messing it up too much.

    Won't change the chainstay length but could be beneficial overall?

    Definitely looking into that already, the cannondales have a pretty low bb so it should be good for him as he’s a short 11 year old and after our Sedona trip last month he’s looking to hit everything in site.

    Also, just for fun I put the f1rst fork and 24” tire on my daughters hotrock 20 and her brother couldn’t believe it when she plowed up curbs no problem with a probably 65* hta
