I am new to biking. Just got started a few weeks ago. What actually got me started is my 4 year old son. He LOVES riding his little bike, and I couldn't turn my back on that kind of family time. I have a 2nd hand cheapo Schwinn from Academy that was given to me, so I said "why not" and we have been riding together 5 nights a week now. The Schwinn REALLY SUCKS!!! It does NOT fit me at all (I am only 5'-5"), and makes my back hurt really bad after an hour of riding. So I am now about to buy a new 16" Trek 4300 that I have been saving for!!! Well, my boy turns five next week, and as a bribe to take the training wheels off, I wanted to buy him a new bike. Do you guys think that at this age, a $200.00 Trek (MT16 or Jet16) is worth it??? I know that he would be so excited to get a bike that is like Daddy's, but that would also blow out my whole birthday budget for him. I just wanted to get some feedback from a cycling community as to what the general mindset is when it comes to kids bikes.
