Looking at building my 6 yearold a 20" Dirt Jump style bike. It will be used for Dirt Jumping, pump track, Rays indoor park, and a basher bike.
I want to go single speed, full ridged, rear break only, short stays, and light. Something like the little Shredder Icon but a lot cheaper.
I was thinking about starting with a mongoose Fireball or a Commencal Ramones.
Mongoose | Fireball 20" Kids Hardtail Dirtjump Mountain Bike with Shimano Components
The bike is like 28#'s but that's with a steel fork, bars , stem and geared. I would do a carbon BMX fork and ditch all the other stuff. 20#'s easy.
Already single speed and weights 18#'s. This would be a better deal.
Does anyone have any other suggestions. I was thinking about doubt an 18" BMX but everyone we ride with rides MTB and dirt jump. I think he might be able to transfer that he learns on a DJ bike over to his mountain bike easier too.
