I'm looking at getting a BMX race bike for my 6 year old. He has a friend who races and wants to get into the game. I know all I need to know about road bikes, but I'm totally ignorant about what to look for in a good BMX racing bike. I was hoping you guys could help me out. I'm not real sure what my budget is as I'm not even sure what to be looking for. I'd think that weight would be a bit of an issue for a kid that young (power to weight) but I'm not going to sell the car just to get a 12lb bike (or whatever they weigh).
Thanks (and yeah, you can abuse me, I don't care and my feelings won't be hurt)
