So we bought both the boys mtn bikes (8 and 10). We went on about a 15 mile ride today, 1/2 road, 1/2 trails to see if they would like it! I was really worried about my 8 y/o, he is very small at about 40lbs...wet. The little guy bottomed his front shock out and now I have to figure out what to do about it. He loved it and is a complete natural! He even kept up right behind me...so close at one point he ran into me when I came upon a huge mud hole and crashed into my bike, but thats ok! I am sooo happy and I can't wait to make a day out of hitting trails!
BTW any idea what to do about his shock?? Its a trek MX 20" and I am not sure if I can switch something that small out!
