    Full size wheels for the biggest of the littles

    So been looking for a new bike/frame for the eldest little. She’s cussing on outgrowing her 24. Seems Juliana Furtado, liv, Mach 429 sl or yeti beti 100 in the xs are the options. However....have you seen the prices. FUCK!

    Anybody holding one of the above on a bike or frame and looking to part?

    Thanks

    I'm about to sell mrs jm2e's Small Knolly Warden.
    She's 5' 2" and it fits her brilliantly. And it rips up a storm.
    For reference, she's got a 150mm dropper post on it. And the standover is low enough for her to get on/off on steep chunky terrain.
    How big is your kid?
    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    Transition makes X-S frames too, in alloy. Scout might be the ticket for a little person. Commencal has their Clash (650b) in "junior" size. Both will be cheaper than SC/Pivot/Yeti. Not sure about Giant.

    I thought about suggesting this, but it's 160 travel which seems like more than he's looking for.

    She’s 4’9”....just on the cusp of her transition ripcord. Knolly is probably a bit big. I’ll look into the scout.

    Maybe an old Pivot Mach 5.7 XS. When Mrs jm2e was looking at the Warden she demo'd some Pivots. The Mach 6 small was a good fit for her and the xs was definitely little. The 5.7 is basically its predecessor, with 26" wheels. Really nice low standover.

    Maybe you could get a Mag to pick it up for you.

    I had a 5.7. It was the best bike I've ever had for it's time. This bike's in Whistler. Easy enough for me to get it and figure out how to bring it to you
