14 Inch XC Frames – HELP!!
I am looking for a neat aluminium XC MTB 14 inch frame (new or used) to make a nice bike for my very keen 11 year old daughter to ride and race. They seem very hard to find and currently I am looking at the slightly heavy On One steel 14 inch frame.
Any ideas very welcome . . .Posted 4 years agojonathanSubscriber

I built up a very nice 14″ Scandal for my partner; it was very affordable too with the bundle deals that On-One had going at the time. They only appear to have 16″ frames at present (14″ have disappeared from the list too) but it does look as if there will be 14″ Inbreds in early this month.Posted 4 years agomoniexMember
We have a spesh rockhopper for my youngest. He had a 13.5″ and now has a 15″ (old womens fame I think). Built up not spending too much. Great comfy frames, and not too expensive used. We also have a 14″ scandal for my oldest aged 12. Light, but not so good for kids (especially girls) due to the long top tube. I prefer the rockhopper for kids.
This is my youngest son with his new bike. He is 10 and about 145cm. Bike weight 24.7lbs (as in the picture incl heavy seat/pedals etc).
Spend as much on air forks and light wheels as you can. This bike cost about £350 (still had the brakes and shifters).

found this on ebay, listed for another day and 20 hrs. I’ve got the older version of the shogun cult in 14″ as a practice stunt/trials bike (not sure who I think i’m kidding with that one). mine looks a LOT like the kona shred dirt jump bike. it’s very light. most of the parts are crap but how good does a bar/stem need to be to get you going? the frame is good, but as I say I have the older one. had a look at some other pics online and can confirm that both versions are disc compatible. hope this helps:

EDIT – VERY SORRY BUT JUST NOTICED THAT THE EBAY BIKE IS DIFFERENT TO ONE I LOOKED AT PICS OF, AND IT MAY NOT BE DISC COMPATIBLE AFTER ALL.Posted 4 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
All these are under £250 build cost – an either 13.5″ or 13″:Islabike is shortest TT; Trek next; Cannondale longest (but lightest).Posted 4 years ago
