Liked a comment about feature Great New Kid's Mountain Bikes - 2022 Specialized Riprock Review 10/27/2021 6:34 PM

I see your point, there are a lot of ripper kids. However, I wouldn't harsh on these bikes. $700 can be a lot for a family, and $1500 or something can be a mortgage payment if you have two little rippers. I don't see many downsides for these bikes as these prices. If you want a dropper post and suspension, can't you just add it yourself? It could be done for $200 for the dropper and maybe a used straight steerer older fork for $3-400? That would still be $1300 or so with a little work on mom or dad's part. The hub spacing, disk brake ready frames seem to be ready for upgrades you might want down the road.
