You have to allow for the two schools of thought as rigid 20/24” bikes with Plus tires are becoming more and more common. Some level of suspension at a lighter weight and without the cost-sink and maintenance of a suspension fork. As kids bikes with decent suspension forks and good geo go I agree. The Vertex line looks great (I like the 2018 colour ways better - but maybe that’s just me), geo is dialled, and the spec is excellent. Even the Vee Rubber Crown Gem tires look pretty good (maybe throw a 2.4” Vee Flow Snap up front). I haven’t seen anything better per/$.  Throw on some Chromag Radar pedals (or the plastic version in the future) and ride.
