It might be a good idea to measure her current cranks :) She rides a 24" alu Trek MT-200 to school and a 24" carbon MTB on the weekends. Will measure both.

No racing for us so carbon is over the top, but I got a really good second-hand deal on the 24" carbon bike. For the 26" I have been looking for a small and light alu-frame for some time now with no luck. I ended up paying $260 for the FM-frame (plus VAT over here possibly) and that makes it a viable option.

I´ll keep you posted. Fork arrived this week, the frame shipped out today. Guessing that cranks may be the hardest parts to source.

Frame & fork ordered. Fork will be a Manitou Marvel Comp, found a good deal on it. Air, rebound, compression.  I have wheels and carbon bars, will do some bargain hunting during the winter for brakes and drivetrain. Over and out for now, the frame will probably be few weeks.

Greetings from Sweden!

Great!

My daughter in almost 2" shorter, but this a winter project. Since you use the short Wake stem and a seatpost with no setback, there should be som room for the girls to grow!

Nice build!

How tall was your daughter when she got the bike? My 9yo is on a 24" (14" seat tube) bike now, but I suspect that it will be slightly small next year. This frame looks like a really good option for a winter build for her and me.
