That is an awesome bike. You must be so proud, and for your son too. Congrats.

Thanks. Yes, I am proud of him. He is a good kid as well as a fast rider.

This is fantastic! Has to be one of the cooler things I've seen on here in a little while.

Thanks. It was a fun project. He'll probably outgrow it in a year. But the frame will pass on to his little brother so it is a worthwhile investment.

Hey guys... a few minor changes and modifications since the initial build. First, I converted some Continental Mountain King (rear) and Race King (front) tires to tubeless. That dropped about 2 pounds from the bike. Second, I changed the brakes to Magura HS33 hydraulic rim brakes. This was a big improvement for my son as the rear cantilever was virtually useless.

There is a video of us riding the dunes in Schoorl at http://youtu.be/nc2SckXQKB0. It is raw video from my bar-cam.

My son is growing too fast. I'm not sure we'll get another year out of this frameset.
