Light Kid's BMX Bike
Looking for recommendations for a light, single speed bmx bike, for a taller, beginner rider. I remember seeing some of the racing mini-bmx bikes when my brother would race, but would like to keep it under $500.
I know everyone is going to say, "I grew up with a burly/heavy bike and I didn't have any problems," but ligher would definitely work better for the mostly road riding she will be doing to start. So many of the kid's bikes are so overbuilt with full suspension and massive frames. My kid's bike shouldn't weigh the same as her dad's 60 cm road bike.
Non semper erit aestas.
