If you had to build the perfect kids mountain bike, it probably wouldn’t be far off from the new Fezzari Lone Peak kid’s mountain bike. With an air suspension fork, full 1×12 drivetrain, and internal cable routing, it’s got the look and the spec we’d want for our own adult bikes.

The hardtail frame is formed with the same lightweight alloy as their higher-end adult mountain bikes. It’s built around 24″ wheels, and sized for youth between 4’2″ and 4’10” tall. It gets a water bottle cage mount inside the front triangle, and is routed for a stealth dropper post if you wanted to add that later.

The Stan’s NoTubes Arch rims on Formula hubs are wrapped in 24 x 2.6″ Vee Crown Gem tires to provide plenty of traction and more comfort thanks to the higher volume. They come with tubes installed, but are ready to be set up tubeless.

The headtube is tapered, and they say you can upgrade to a 100mm travel fork, but the stock fork is a straight 1-1/8″ steerer SR Suntour XCR Air fork with 80mm of travel. It has a lighter spring setup to help it move through the travel even under smaller, lighter riders.

A 67º head angle gives it a modern take on aggressive geometry, just with a kid’s sizing in mind.

The drivetrain uses a SRAM SX Eagle 11-50 cassette with 30t chainring on shorter crank arms. It’s full SRAM, from triggers to cranks, making it easy to upgrade any of the parts (like with a lighter cassette!) over time. It even has ISCG05 mounts if you wanted to add a chain guide or bash guard.

The cockpit is a mix of alloy house-brand bar, stem and post, with WTB Volt saddle and Velo grips. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with short-reach levers round out the build.

Good parts cost a bit, and the complete bike retails for $999. Available for pre-order now with delivery in September 2021.

    Seems like a sweet kids bike for the price with the exception of the drivetrain. Missed opportunity to spec something like the Microshift Advent X with lower price, significantly lower weight, fewer gears, and more durability.
