- Frame for a kid?
Our eldest has been belting round the local singletrack and the odd trail centre on her rigid kids bike and has been asking for a MTB like mine – which is fair enough really and I agree
Shes 11 and although has decent fitness is on the tall and weedy side so Id be keen to build her something she will get on with easily
Fortunately I have all of the stuff from a mostly XT built but now dead full suss frame sitting in the shed for the last 4y or so
The bits are well used but should scrub up with a bit of graft and some spares from CRC
I had thought of a Whippet frame, currently mucho cheapo, but opinion seems to think 2×10 is the way to go here and I have 3×9, plus my forks are 130mm which also doesnt go
An Inbred at 140 quid seems the way to go, any comments??
PS I have no affinity with On One, they just seem to be flogging off stuff at the moment (for a change)Posted 4 years ago
