My son would like his first BMX style bike. I would like the bike to last him for a reasonably long period of time and will pay more for a bike that he won't grow out of in a few years. I don't know whether to get a freestyle bike or dirt jumping bike. He uses his current mountain bike for riding on some small ramps we have in our driveway. I don't know of any skate parks in our Chicago area that allow bikes on their ramps. There are no large dirt jumping hills where we live. An all purpose bike would seem to make the most sense if such a thing exists. He wants the bike to have front and rear pegs and wants the detangler for the brakes so he can rotate the handlebars. The only bikes we have looked at so far are the SE Quadrangle 1.0 freestyle bike($159 on sale) and the SE Mauler 1.0 dirt bike ($140 on sale). The Mauler comes with no pegs. SE is the only brand that the one shop we went to sells. When I have checked online the popular brands seem to be Haro, Hoffman, Trek, etc. Dad would hope to spend under $250 and would prefer $150. If buying a bike that will last for more than 2-3 years is unrealistic, let me know.
