The New Giant Faith is the Kids' Bike We Wish We Had
The 26" Jeffsy Primus comes with a SRAM SX drivetrain, SRAM G2 brakes, and the most bare bones Rockshox fork and shock that only have rebound adjustment. These Crest units from Giant appear to have compression adjustment on both fork and shock, so that's a plus. The Advent X drivetrain is a go to for me on my own bikes, and nice to see specced here rather than Acolyte or even the 9 speed Advent (still a great drivetrain). The brakes are Tektro, who are one of the biggest OEM brake providers and also own TRP who make some very good brakes.

@cueTIP: End of the day the Faith 24 has a 25" standover height. Use a 2.2:1 ratio to turn that into height and that's 55" which is the average height of a 10 year old!

@maestroman21: "use" or properly ride in full control on technical trails? The 24" Faith has 140mm cranks, a 320mm seat tube, and a 100mm dropper. Add another 30mm for the seat post collar and stack height of the saddle and you're at 590mm, which is 23". Average height to inseam ratio is 2.2:1, so you'd need to be ~ 51" tall at a minimum to ride this bike as it comes from the factory. I wouldn't put a 51" tall child on a bike with a 370mm reach, and neither would Commencal, YT, Nukeproof, Spawn etc...

The Microsoft Advent X drivetrain is one of my go to options for my own bikes. The Jeffsy Primus 24 comes with the Manitou Junit fork, and a Manitou shock, which are very nice. Nukeproof specced the Junit fork on the Cub Scout 24 Race also.

Agreed. 376mm reach for a 5 year old is ridiculous. Nukeproof's Cub Scout 24 has(had) a 345mm reach, and they recommend that for kids 127cm (50") and taller. Looking at an average height chart, 5 year olds are 43"...

Field Test: YT Jeffsy Core 1 - Where Value Meets Performance
A truly 'Uncaged' version would be a frame that you could build up to your own spec, just like The Mob riders do. I'd love to get an Izzo or a Jeffsy frame, and built it up with a Manitou Mara and Mattoc and all the other components of my choice. Does anyone other than Canfield offer a frame only, no shock?

Rónán Dunne Presented with Red Bull Helmet at Hardline
I've always wondered how the other RedBull gear works for the athletes. I tried asking Martin Maes, but I think he thought I was trying to get a Red Bull hat from him, but I was only curious about the logistics. Do the athletes have a website they can go to and request different hats/gear? Do Red Bull send them a bunch of stuff in a box at the start of/throughout each season and they pick and choose? Do they grab a hat/hoodie any time they are at one of the Red Bull facilities?

Canyon Gap Removed from 2024 Red Bull Hardline
Given it was the course, with no b-line, you either had to hit it, or not compete...

Canyon Gap Removed from 2024 Red Bull Hardline
I wonder how many of the other riders said "not a chance I'm hitting that"? Even with the addition of a safety net, there's still the issue of coming up slightly short and face-planting into the edge of the landing/scaffolding...

Video: Erik Fedko, Jack Moir, Dylan Stark & More Ride Bentonville
Free loaner batteries for folks travelling with the Decoys is a brilliant move on YT's part. Here's hoping we get a Mill in New England at some point so I can demo an Izzo and Jeffsy.
