My son finally out grew his GT stomper 20" this year, so I am looking to get him a new bike to start some trail riding.
I found locally a 2005 Trek 3700 for $60 that is is in great shape. Would this be an ok bike for him to start on. He is just now wanting to get into riding some trails. I know the front suspension isn't that great. He is 4'8" and weighs 90 lbs, so I think it will work for now.
I do have a 15 yr old Gaint 13" sitting in the shed. Steel frame with no suspension. Everything is pretty worn so it would require a few hundred dollars to get it up to par, but it is pretty light.
I don't want to spend 3-400 and have him out grow it next year when he gets a growth spurt. We plan on spending more money on a bette mountain bike once we know he likes doing it.
Any thoughts or opinions would be great. I am supposed to go look at the Trek in an hour, so I would love some feedback.
