Raleigh Rep IV

All,

Anyone have experience with this bike? Looking for a bike for my 8 year old, about 50" tall. Seems strange this bike is listed for 4-8 year olds. Has a ~20" top tube and 20" wheels, seems like it would be fine, but just want to see. Also looking at the Diamondback Viper, another 20" bike with a shorter top tube (19.5" or so).

Well according to this site https://www.ebicycles.com/bicycle-to...sizer/bmx-bike he should have something with a 15.5 inch top tube... But I maybe calculating it wrong I put 50inches = 127cm? or 4'16? Sounds like you may need to be looking for either a 16 or 18'' BMX
