I was going to recommend the Mini or Junior BMX bike too. They are light, have skinny tires and are fast.

If you'll be taking the kid to the trails a kid mtb is a better choice.

My son (9) started with a 14" TrU Kent dh look alike junk of junk when he was 4 then moved to a mini bmx, a 24" mtb and now rides a 24" roadie and a 26" mtb (13"). A good quality kid bike will take you to a price range similar to cheap lbs quality grown up bikes but the weight penalty will still be there, it isn't as bad as a x mart bike but not equal to grown ups.

I'm selling this 2 bikes but they're big for your kid, both are 24".

Girls Gary Fisher Tyro


Boys Diamondback Octane 24 with lots of upgrades (used to be my son's race bike)


Asking $300 OBO for each plus shipping
