Mountain Bike frames 3

Junior XC

A frame built for my son, aged 11 & 4’ 10” tall; this is about as small as I feel a 26” wheeled mountain bike frame can go.

165mm long crank arms allow a low bottom bracket height; a short (100mm) head tube keeps handlebar height to a minimum, and a steeply angled top tube aids stand over.

Fork Length                  80mm
Head tube angle            69 deg
Seat tube angle             72 deg
Top tube length             21.6”
