I'm looking the market to buy a frame, or a frameset for my daughter (either used, or maybe some Chinese OEM carbon), but don't know anything about MT Bikes.
She'll turn 12yrs old, and a little under 5'. So my guess she'll need either a 13" or 14" frame, maybe 15" ?
She's starting MTB racing. What are the good options to look for ?

Thanks weenies,

LOuis :)

2008-9 XXS Giant XCR alloy mtb frame would be pretty good for your required sizes, can be picked up for a less than a couple of hundred $ on Ebay.

I think Kenesis make some fairly nice, small Aluminum HTs, for either 24" or 26" wheels. Not bad pricing or weight if the larger models are anything to go by.

Yep my bad, meant the XCR.

Good luck, hopefully you don't go through the same process as my parents did where I wen't from a 16" to a 21" between the age of 12 and 15 :wink:
