Video: Hayes' JUnit Line Includes Forks, Controls, Wheels and Brakes For Kids
@Svinyard: I agree specialized should be ashamed the parts are super cheap and ridiculously heavy, and I would have been super disappointed, had I not paid half price for a slightly used bike. I figured I would be replacing all the parts anyhow so no sense buying a new one. I actually bought the 20” model and will be using the 24” fork in the front to slacken the head angle, that way I’ll be able to still use the fork when I get my son a 24” wheeled bike. I was also looking at the vitus, they have some nice kids bikes only problem was the cost of shipping to where I live.

This is awesome, I just finished stripping all the heavy crappy parts off my sons specialized rip rock, and have been having a hard time finding quality parts to replace them with, especially the fork. I will definitely be getting the fork and brakes and probably the rims too.

Suspension, Anti-Lock Brakes, and a Dropper Post Cable Kit - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
@HARv379: l bought my son a bike with disc brakes because I want him to learn real bike skills( like using disc brakes, shifting gears etc.) at a young age. I got a really good deal on a used specialized rip rock 20, it has disc brakes, 20” wheels, a seven speed drivetrain and is designed for kids 5-8 years old. Also I feel like most kids bikes are a joke, they weight a ton, have rediculous single speed gearing, terrible brakes, and apart from teaching some pedaling and balance skills they don’t have much to offer a beginner. I want them to learn on a real bike at a younger age so that they are good riders when they are older

@HARv379: so you had disc brakes on your bike when you where five? I doubt it, you probably had a shitty coaster brake like most other kids, making it very hard to go over the bars. My kids are not cushioned from bumps and scrapes, that being said, if you’ve ever gone over the bars and eaten dirt you know it can be a serious whipe out. I broke my hand going over the bars in a crash when I was younger, it’s also very easy to knock out some teeth or fuck up your face, so if I can spare my kids that kind of crash I would. Also this device doesn’t brake for you or take away from learning how to use brakes, all it is is a proportioning valve that will adjust the brake bias to the rear, people do this on race cars all the time to adjust how the brakes respond. I love how it’s the all or nothing for you guys, not everyone wants to subject their kids to unecessary harm for the sake of learning things the hard way. Everybody does things differently and some people may find this thing useful. Also fyi I am teaching my kids to use disc brakes without this device and it is going fine, not easy but they’re learning, so don’t assume my kids are wrapped up in bubble wrap.

@loopie: I’m talking about five year old kids not eight or nine year olds, try explaining brake modulation to a five year old, sometimes they don’t even remember where the brakes are and crash lol. And besides once they are used to the power of the disc brakes you can turn it off. Do you have kids? Have you explained brake modulation to them at the age of five? It’s not as easy at you’d think explaining rational things to a five year old and having it sink in.

It would be great for teaching kids how to use disc brakes, I have a five and six year old and it would be perfect for them, I agree for most adults this is not necessary. It’s easy for small kids to grab a handful of front brake and go over the bars. With this you could dial it down as they get more comfortable, and avoid any unnecessary face plants.

Pair of new Vee tire snow shoe xl fully studded tires

$265 CAD
These are brand new I mounted them and went for one short ride, during which I realized the bike I built is too big for me, my new frame will not fit such large tires so these are now for sale. These are 4.8's and they are also fully studded with 225 lightweight aluminum carbide studs, and tubeless compatible. I paid over $200 each for these so $265 for both is a great deal. They are beautifully repackaged in the original packaging and are mint, boxed up and ready to go. Great time of year for these it's only going to get icier until it finally all melts, why wait for the ice to melt just get these. Buyer pays shipping and Pay Pal fees

New hope pro 4 fatsno rear hub 197x12mm

$225 CAD
Brand new hub, 197x12mm, I did lace it up and use for one test ride during which I realized the frame I bought is too big, the bike is now being parted out, and my new frame is 177 spacing. The freehub body has no gouges or marks on it at all and everything is mint, just some slight evidence of the spokes in the spoke holes

RSD Mayor frame like new

$275 CAD
This frame is brand new, it is a medium according to RSD but it is a large frame, the seat tube is 19" and the reach is 24", so it's a large really. I bought it under the impression it was actually a medium sized frame, built it up, went on one ride and realized it was too big for me. If you need a large sized frame then this is it, however have a look at the RSD website to confirm the size and geometry is right for you. On their site it's listed as a medium but if you look at the actual numbers it is s big frame. It has 197mm rear spacing, includes 12mm Maxle, the BB is 120mm and it will fit a 5.0 on 100mm rims. Really nice looking frame, the orange is super bright, and it's in mint condition, only a couple small nicks near the dropout from being careless when mounting the wheel. Headset not included.
