It was actually, had a few frothies on board it being Xmas eve- finished the *build about 11ish from memory and then very nearly put myself over the bars on the driveway test ride because the brakes were set up all Euro/US.No pics yet... must be a tough assembly

16 I take it? I've got one coming for my 3.5 son love the look of them.
It turned up yesterday little little fella was so pumped with his surprise, wouldn't take no for an answer on waiting for mum to get home from work before we opened it. I know what you mean with the speed it is a jog to keep up with him on the flat now.Yes mate, 16. No complaints at all, it's not even than much heavier than the 12. Actually, he's a lot faster and if I'm walking the dog behind, I end up running.
Yeah quick swap, it's just physical cables to swap in the lever. Suggest you disassemble and lube bars, stem and vbrake calipers and housing (yeah shouldn't have to I know) was crusty AF and felt like sh1t, brakes were inconsistent with low spring tension.It turned up yesterday little little fella was so pumped with his surprise, wouldn't take no for an answer on waiting for mum to get home from work before we opened it.

Have you swapped the brakes not sure I'm going to bother as his spawn balance bike had the rear brake on the right.

Let us know what you think of it. Been eyeing exact bike out for a while now, just trying to get the minister of finance over the line but the answer is always NO, not now... haha. btw where's the new distro?
I’ve been slowly raising the seat on my daughters 16” Spawn banshee to see if she could comfortably ride it with a height similar to some of the lowest seat position of a few 20” bikes I have been eying off. She hit the magic 59cm mark a few weeks ago. Which coincided nicely with the Commencal distribution moving from Pushys in Canberra to The crew running Dharco on Sydney’s northern beaches (about 30 min drive from my place)
After chatting on the phone I went and had a look at Mathieu’s sons Meta HT20 and it was sweet, kids are about the same age and height. Lo and behold the price had also come down since changing distro by about 300 clams so I paid on the spot and they built it up for me today. These guys were so good to deal with and even gave it a nice girly treatment with a complimentary flamingo party frame skin on the TT and matching mudguard.
It’s staying under wraps for a few days - she has no idea, but plan is to sneak it into her room while at school so I can take her on an arvo ride to break it in.
