Im looking for a beginner bike for a 9 yr old. He is my girlfriends son and wants a street bike bad. I guess he wants the pegs and all to tote his buddies around on the back, but he likes jumping curbs and such. Im a mtn biker and know nothing about the newer bmx bikes. I come from the old days of roger D, diamond back, and mongoose being the bikes to have. What would you guys recommend as a beginner bike for him? He is a fairly small guy and can be pretty hard on stuff, so a department store bike isnt going to cut it for him. He is just under 4' tall if that will help with any info you can give.
Thank for any input you may have.

for his size you have got to go with a haro X0...only 28 pounds and a super compact frame..you will just have to buy a set of pegs for him
