    SS mtb for 9 year old

    I'm looking for a SS mtb for my son he is 4'8", have looked at the gravity 27fiveSS in a 13 or maybe a dirt jumper conversion? Any ideas?

    My oldest daughter is on a XS Salsa Ala Carte (26er) set up single speed. She is 4'11"~ but started on it at 4'9" or 4'10". I plan on lacing up a set of 27.5 wheels (I think they will fit the frame, just need a new fork) for it soon, maybe next summer. My youngest is 5'1" tall and just got on a small Specialized Carve single speed (29er), it is a touch long on the reach for her with a 60mm stem. But plenty rideable.

    Good luck & enjoy riding with your son! My favorite times on a bike are following my girls!!

    Thanks for the replies, i only see the baby fatty frame with a threaded BB available right now and will look around for a Salsa xs frame to see what i can find.

    I meant you'd have to get your own ebb. Like this for example: Trickstuff

    Be careful. At age 9, growth spurts literally happen overnight.

    Got a specialized myka 13", i might try a singulator or magic gear and if that works i'll upgrade the fork.
