Best Boys Bike on a Budget

I'm looking for a decent, lightweight bike for my 10 year old son. We live in the mountains, so gears are a must. I would like to spend no more than $200 if at all possible. Any recommendations?

Also, what size bike would you recommend? He is 53 inches tall (4ft. 5in.)

Used specialized hotrock street 24" is what I found - not bad at all. It is quite light, my 6yo handles it better than his 20" bike because it is so much lighter. Your son may be able to do one of the small 24" wheel road bikes if that's what you and he are interested in.
