@Kc9123: Otherwise we may have to build a wall to keep out the Americans ;-)

@TommyWilkinson: Wife does not have any dexterity left to manage two brake levers(dont get me started at how many times she cant raise her dropper post). Any links for adaptable equipment would be great. Steep is the biggest problem now, back wheel skids to easy. Hopefully the dual control will cure when it comes. Thanks Craig

We contacted Tektro and they have someone who can build up a single brake to control front and rear with a 50/50 balance. That balance can be changed by adjusting disk size. Ours was designed for right hand control but i assume they can do both. Including custom brake hose length.

@Svinyard: My sons face saved several times by the solid visor on his toddler helmet. Not a scratch from a few face plants on the sidewalk Myself I a 50/50 on full face helmets on small children. Back in the day I read a report on dirt bike injuries (broken necks specifically) caused by chin bars digging in and snapping undeveloped spines. I think LEAT may have cured that but still worry. That being said they have full face and 3/4 helmets now. Congrats on the Bunny Hop Waki. I would get weepy myself if our kids do same.

@Svinyard: Hopefully J-Unit Group are reading these and they can hook up our kids as testers in the Great White North as we ride the North Shore and Hornby Island year round;-) I was looking at the Commencals and had not realized the spec was poor. I am worried that we may need to go Full squish soon and the prices go through the roof then. That leaves me back with Spawn or Lil Shredder then if I need the more squish.

@Svinyard: Crank looks identical to the Spawn I put on the vertex. Thinking that the fork may be the weak link in this package. For this size the kids will need a bit more squish. They are already bottoming out their current 65 mm forks. (ends up being a real compromise between plush and bottoming).

We have been through two spawn Banshee 16" bikes for the kids and bought both used for 325 each, rode the wheels off them, sold the one for 325, and the other is waiting for the next ripper to grow into it. I cannot recommend these bikes enough. You will see depreciation if you buy new but not crazy like the junk brands, especially when many are ready for the garbage when the one kid is done with them.

Dont forget Spawn Bikes. I just finished a big upgrade to one of our two 2018 Rocky Mt. Vertex 20". First bike I just swapped the tires for the Spawn 2.2 x 20" Second bike has a shorter stem. Spawn cranks(much shorter but can remember size at the moment), swapped the rims for Spawn TR, and tires again for their 2.2 and set up tubeless. Honestly, this is the bike that Rocky should have made. They can thank me by giving me two vertex 24s with my above modifications(They could make a BC Edition). The tires alone totally changed the bike. It is now a real Mt. bike but still a bit heavy. The added traction was immediately apparent on both bikes, they were able to climb steeper and looser trails and descending confidence and ability went through the roof. I didnt realize how much the 1.9 tires were holding them back. For 2019 Rocky put a 2.2 on but did not change the rim, which i found pinched the tire to much, the wider spawn rims made for a much better fit, and TR. That being said I should have just bought the Spawn in the first place as the above modifications(after paying the LBS to lace the rims) was about 800. Add that to the original price and we have a 1600 kids bike 0-: If you have a Spawn/Lil Shedder/Commencal 24" for sale and in good shape drop me a message as the one kid is just about to outgrow the Vertex.
