BMX for 13 year old son....help!

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here. My son is nearly 13, and has developed an interest in BMX bikes. He's been saving money from his dog walking/cat sitting jobs, and would like to purchase a used BMX. We've been looking at ads on kijiji, but we're new to this and don't really know what to look for.

So far we've seen the following:
4 year old Norco (model unknown) for $150 CDN (we're in Toronto, so are looking at ads in CDN $)
Hutch (model unknown) < 1 year old for $220
various Haro models for $200+
GT Slammer, brand new, with original pedals still sealed ( I understand these frames are made of Hi-Ten steel....is this good, or would it be heavy? Should we be looking for bikes with frames made from some other material?) $195

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I was in Toyrus the other day and they had a nice BMX for $159, $100 of the regular price with all the bells and whistles and 360 degree turning. Good wheels and brakes as well.
