good trick/street bike for a 6yr???

I'm looking at getting my son a street/trick bike. He currently races and wants to be able to do more with a bike when not on the track. He's 6 yrs old, caught right between a 16" and 18". I'll most likely go with the 18" just because of how he's growing, so we can keep the bike more than a year. He's about 45" tall and around 45#. Any suggestions on brands, or specifics to look for other than weight. price is not a factor.
Thanks

I just bought my daughter a micro GT with 20 wheels. We all like it so much that we got another one for my son. Im sure you could put pegs and a front brake onto a micro to let him play around a bit. Might help him to find one with th 18 inch wheels.

Maybe we aren't thinking of the same bike.... but the GT micro mini that I know of is a race bike, my son is currently racing a mini. If that is the same micro that you have, there is no way it would hold up to the abuse from my son that it would receive as a ramp/trick/street bike. The style that I am looking for is like this.... https://www.jrbicycles.com/storefront...productId=4860. small front sprocket with a rear driver, bigger tires and beefier build. Thanks for the input though!

https://www.danscomp.com/ I don't really know how many 18" bikes they have, but this would be a good place to start. https://www.albes.com/ Might have something too.
