youth track bike

i am fortunate enough to live 5 minutes from the international velodrome at bloomer park.
my 9 year son had been asking about going out for juniors night and i finally took him last night. for a first timer he did really well

we are a cycling family and i'm thinking of picking up a track bike for him if he continues to show an interest.
any ideas? last night he rode a fuji/ 43cm, it was a little big but it worked sufficiently.

check out havnoonian

I think he used to offer trade in deals, too, so kids could swap out bikes as they grow. I have no idea if he still does.

And go check out the 6-day race that starts tonight.
