look up, $121 at REI. i wore them a few times in 30-ish degree weather here in idaho. it wasn't wet, but they were clutch w/ some long underwear beneath at keeping legs just right. i was really stoked on them and i've never ridden in pants like this before for "xc" rides...only rode in bulky pants for DH in the past. if i knew i was going to be riding xc in cold or wet on a regular basis, i wouldn't think twice about these.

cool about the ramones! commencals all look great and seem spec'd really well. my boy loved the twist shifter and the action felt light enough. adult triggers seemed big for his hands. i'd notice he'd have to rock his wrist down on the grip to reach the triggers. he got it done either way but he was stoked on the twist. gripshift comeback 2023 : )

great info and can't agree more on the geo. my littlest guy in the vid is on the specialized riprock 12 bike. the geo is proper on that. he's shredding on it, my older boy learned on it. seeing the geometry on the 12-16" department store bikes is borderline frightening. there are some strange setups out there. it'd be no surprise if a lot of kids hate bikes b/c they started on something so goofy. i've also seen some little rippers at the bmx track on the most awkward bikes, so kids adapt well if budget is an issue. i could see the norco with a rigid fork being basically perfect right now for reasons you stated. trek's roscoe 20 is plus with rigid and looks good. there a bunch 20" plus-tire bikes for groms out there and it's so cool to see. interesting about skipping 24" too.

Great write up! I'll throw in some unsolicited advice, having been in the rodeo a couple of times.
- geometry is everything, the bikes above are probably great for kids, and department store bikes will have poor geometry - Specialized nailed it years ago, it's amazing how much better kids ride on...more

I've been on this market before. My requirements were hydro disc brakes because it's important for kids to learn proper speed - front/rear brake control. a front air shock (because it's easy to tune for low weight riders)
The match for me was the Norco, it's a well built and specs bike. I updated...more

Enduro schralper, manual master and do-it-all pinner, Kyle Warner hops on his e-bike with the challenge of hitting every feature and trail at the Eagle Bike Park in just an hour. All the jump trails, beginner through expert, the XC trails, the pumptrack and even the BMX track are part of this painful, pedal-heavy loop. Is it possible? Find out.

This was good. Style is a bit of a throwback... brought back good memories of the early 2000s. Those whips on the djs are second to none. Respect!

If someone was to put on a DH Speed and Style race, the Aussies would take every podium spot for years to come. The rest of the world has quite a bit of catching up to do.
