    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.

    KHE Triple Threat LT

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

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