Best Lightweight BMX's to look for?
I could use some advice. I have an 11 year old who is fast progressing on BMX - doing tricks and begining to ride skateparks.
I found him a well equipped Redline Triple x on Craigs List earlier this year which has been super solid and great taking abuse, but we think it was build for a grown up and he complains it is too heavy.
Could you recommend lighter weight, well built BMX models for me to look out for on Craigs List (in other words roughly between 3-8 years old - not this years models)?
I'm a road guy, and don't know my BMX. With the jumps he's starting to do I want a bike that won't fail on him. I'm hoping to buy used on Craigs List and spend somewhere between $80 - 150.
I know components also make a difference so advice on those would be great too.
