Yesterday I took my 10 year old daughter riding at Dawson’s Butte and we had a great time, but it was apparent that she has pretty much outgrown her Specialized Hotrock.
Today, just for fun, we pulled the 70mm stem off my commuter bike and cut its seatpost down to about 250mm and set them up on my totally tricked out (small) Giant Trance…and it fits her. She’s already calling it "her" bike. 😮
I dropped the pressure in the fork to 50psi and the rear shock to 60psi and it’s as smooth as butter over curbs and stuff.
The Easton XC One’s and Geax AKA’s roll fast and easy, and ironically this adult bike is lighter than her much smaller kids bike.
