    Need 24" Dirt Jumper build help!

    Hey guys, A few recommendations on components...

    We bought a 24" Spawn Kotori frame that we are going to build up for my 8 year old. There isn't much out there for a 24" build so I need some help. The suspension forks made for 24" tires are crazy expensive.

    1. What forks would you recommend- Rigid and sus?
    2. What are the effects of putting a 26" fork on a bike designed for 24" wheels?

    Any advice on wheels, tires, cranks etc would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Not a dirt jumper but when my son was small I built him a 24" Gary Fisher that he rode on some gnarly trails.
    I used 24" Sun Ringle Rhyno Lites and Maxxis Snypers. I had a 26" Manitou fork on it and it worked fine.

    I recently built a bike for my nephew and used Trailcraft cranks. Very nice parts.

    I'm trying to load a pic of the GF but not having any luck.

    Thanks! Went with Kotori 24" frame, manitou 24" fork (comes out in a couple of days), trailcraft cranks, and Hayes brakes. Working on getting some MTX33 wheels and Kenda Small block tires.
