Some riders insist on treating themselves to the best bikes and components they can afford, and if these riders have kids (and a healthy income) those little tykes are likely to benefit from their parent’s appreciation of high-quality goods. If you want ‘only the finest’ for your up and coming mountain biker, how about a full carbon bike with disc brakes, a 1×11 drivetrain, a slew of carbon components and titanium pedals?
Fair Wheel Bikes doesn’t play second fiddle with their custom creations, and we’ve checked out a few other tantalizing bikes in the past including a Parlee gravel grinder with a custom XTR/Di2 setup. This is the first kids bike they’ve put together, and it was built around Woom’s brand new Carbonara 20” rigid frame and fork.
The complete custom bike seen here weighs just 14.2 lbs with the pedals and bottle cage included. Check out more specs on Fair Wheel’s custom build and info on Woom’s stock Carbonara models below…
If you want a light bike you’re going to need a light frame, and Woom’s Carbonara 4 certainly fits the bill at 947g. The matching Carbonara 4 fork uses a full carbon tapered steer tube to keep its weight down to 380g. Despite those numbers Woom says they kept durability in mind so the bike will handle a child’s thrashing.
The complete bike seen here is a Fair Wheel custom build and its final price tag was not revealed, but Woom is offering two stock versions of the Carbonara which are available now in limited quantities. Check their website for full specs (link is below), but in short there’s an XT build selling for $2999 USD and for the luckiest little ones an XTR Di2 equipped model for $3499.
Some special features of Fair Wheel’s customized Woom include a set of Bombshell 145mm cranks with a 104 BCD spider. The bike also rolls on Box Focus front-specific 20” rims which have been set up tubeless, and the Enve Sweep handlebar was cut to a kid-friendly 560mm width. Gear selection is handled by a Sram Red 22 Wifli rear derailleur, spanning a Recon 11-32t cassette via Sram’s S-700 trigger shifter.
There are plenty of other notable parts on this high-end build like the DT Swiss 240 hubs, Extralite 30t narrow-wide front chainring, HSC ceramic bottom bracket, Kcnc Knife titanium pedals, Shimano XT brakes squeezing Kcnc’s Razor rotors, plus a carbon 55mm stem and 27.2mm seatpost from Enve and a Tune Speedneedle carbon saddle.
And since a custom bike just wouldn’t be complete without some key finishing touches, this junior ripper is adorned with Tune skewers, Parts of Passion headset spacers and chainring bolts, a Fairwheel carbon bottle cage, and red anodized bar ends and valve caps. Some lucky kid out there is about to have some very jealous friends!
