Best racing type bike for 10 & 8 year old?
My 2 sons are in need of new bikes. The 10 year old has a bmx bike and the 8 year old has a cheapy Toys R Us bike. They are both very into doing the kids races at daddies races. But now the 10 year old is able to race as a junior. He needs a new bike though! I can't afford spending more than $400-500 on the bike, since I need to buy 2 of them. They really like the cyclo cross racing and will focus on that. We ride on the dirt trail and some mountain type riding. Not much road riding (I don't trust his ability yet). They need a lightweight bike as they are skinny little kids with not much upper body strength to lift the bike. I measured and they are 44cm and 40cm.
Our local bike stores have a very small selection of youth bikes, so I've been trying to look online for some. Any suggestions on a good bike to get? Thanks!
