I haven't owned or ridden a BMX in approx. 15 years. I don't know what brands are good anymore (back in my day, GT, Mongoose, and Diamond Back were state of the art...). What bike would you get for your kid?

Edit: he's about 4' 6", a full size BMX is pobably just a bit too big for him. I'm looking at the DK Tracer Expert (19" TT, 19.3 lbs.). Thoughts?

Thanks,

A Diamondback Grind (20" wheels") has an 18" top tube. You should be able to find one at a local bike shop for <$200. My understanding is that it is a well-built kid's bike.
