Newbie Kid Help!

My 9 yo boy wants to start BMX. We're looking for a decent bike for him, cheap, since he's got a real short attention span....but not a POS just in case he wants to keep going.....used is more than OK......Any suggestions?

You can't really go wrong even with a low-end bike from a reputable shop. Most bike shops nowadays offer lifetime free adjustments and the quality of the bikes is vastly superior to anything you'll find at Toys'R'Us or Wally World, for not much more $$$. Definitely better bang for the buck.
