New bike for 11 year old son.

I am in the process of buying my son a new bike with a budget of $500.00. He is 11 years old about 4' 6" tall and weighs about 70lbs. Here is what we are looking at any so far any thoughts or comments would be great. He is manily using the bike for tricks. Thanks. If you have other suggestions that would also be great.

Eastern Element
KHE Triple Threat LT
We The People Addict

I would either go for the Addict or KHE. They're all solid bikes though.

He picked a bike not from the list. 2008 Verde Modus cost $400.00 I hope he picked a good bike.

Well considering the '09 ones are almost $800, I'd have to say that it's a solid bike.

Yeah he does. And his parents do as well for letting him get that good of a bike.
