IN my opinion, and I don't have any kids so I could be way off, you should take your daughter to various shops and have her find one she likes. It is more important that she like it then have it be light weight. Besides, extra weight = better workout = faster legs when she starts racing!

Also, if she's six, she will end up outgrowing this bike sooner or later, no sense ordering a custum welded Ti frame for her yet. Just my $0.02
