For christmas at 6 I got a used bike from Montgomery Wards (return, I think. parents weren't real wealthy). It was the best bike I ever got. It would go at least 78 mph, handle 65 foot drops, and weighed 294 pounds. At least the way I remember it. But I did many flips in the pond. I built at least 50 ramps of different heights. We would pop up the back wheel up for a reverse wheelie by riding into the curb or a wall. I could ride a regular wheelie for most of a block. And it never broke more than a spoke or two.
I figure my son will be at least as destructive as I was, so I think we'll hold off on carbon fiber for him a while. Wal-mart will do for the first couple.
