    I need a new kids bike with 24 inch tires

    My precious 8 year old baby has outgrown his Orbea MX20. This was an awesome bike, complete with QRs and hydro disc brakes and fully rigid.

    I don't think he is tall enough for a small frame 26-inch bike. He is 52 inches tall, with an inseam of about 23 inches. I suspect we are looking at something with 24 inch wheels. I think he is ready for front suspension; undecided about full suspension, mainly because of the extra poundage.

    Any advice on what models to look at? I'm leaning toward something used in the $750 range, though there does not seem to be a lot out there.

    TIA>

    Damn, my 7 year old isn't quite ready for that bike, but if he passes, I may need to stockpile a bike.

    I think cloud cult and I have a deal.

    Built from a frame up, 900 gram tubeless wheels, sram 1x11, Sid fork custom valved for kid weight, carbon bars. Itís a sweet ride for sure.

    Man, thatís a sweet deal. I love the hookups you see on this place especially when it comes to getting people hooked up for the kiddos. Love the kids skiing section on gear swap for that reason.

    Cloud cult, sell it to me when you're done. My kid will be ready for it in two years.

    I have a decent-not-great 24" bike in the shed waiting for my kid to grow into it (should be this spring), but if anyone else is selling the sweetness like that, I want it!

    Will be selling her 20" Spawn as soon as she's comfortably on the 24.

    I'm also in the market for a 24" bike. We'll be going on a road trip for about a month in mid March through Denver, Fruita, Moab, and over to Grand Canyon. Probably not necessary to have it before then, but wouldn't hurt either.

    For those in Colorado or close by, Iíd stay on the lookout for Trailcrafts 24Ē bike on Craigslist/pink bike, etc. Itís amazingly light and lets my kid follow me on stuff he couldnít before. Put a 26t ring in the front and they can climb some stuff for real.

    I see them listed from the company all the time, but hardly ever see used ones.

    I had to get one for the second little...my hopes were that the older would grow enough to put her little sister on the transition. I bought a demo direct from them that had been ridden around the parking lot. Save a few hundred bucks.

    In a year or so Iíll have one for sale.

    If you see one used they usually move fast if priced right.
