Take him on Crank It Up instead of B-Line. He will enjoy that a lot more, pretty flat and lots of small jumps for him to practice on. Lukas and I were bolth really impressed with his Commencal's performance at Whistler. Here are a couple picks from yesterday at Burlington Bike Park
Oh man does that place look awesome. My son is asking if we can get on a plane now.

My daughter is climbing hills much better now! Not nearly as much getting off the bike to hike it up hills going on. Not too bad four a 4 year old

Here's my two boys riding with me at Gap Creek, Brisbane. There's a couple of crashes near the end of the video that big brother finds very amusing.
My Youngest daughter is the same; first reaction is to laugh when she sees a wipeout. When I obce pointed out that this wasn't a very charitable act and that she should go and check that all are ok first she gave me an exasperated look and told me that everybody laughs at crashes on youtube.
The next couple of times she crashed I started laughing, she got annoyed and really didn't appreciate my comments about everybody laughs at crashing on Youtube. Got the message across though, seems to have realised that real life crashing hurts and is not the same as youtube
Great vid! Thanks for sharing. Great to see him fall, get back up, and brush it off. Happy trails.
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it.
Here's a short clip I took shortly after compiling that video, of him riding down an entire staircase... a bit crazy and he's since been working on standing on his pedals so he doesn't get bounced around as much.
We haven't been doing much (okay, any!) mountain bike riding lately. But, my 6 and 10 year olds just joined a triathlon team and my daughter, the 6 year old, is absolutely overjoyed with her new ride, a 20" wheel Alubike. I thought you guys would appreciate it. We don't know any road bike folks, so I'll share our excitement here.
My son is on a Felt F24, which I'm pretty sure is in this thread, but back many pages.

1st ride of spring from the other week, 7 miles single track. Then played around at DJ & pump track. Got do a little gate practice the other day too. Looking forward to DH parks to open in the next few weeks.
Thanks a lot!
Well recognized, although there isn't much left of the original bike, a Supurb BO12. Here are some more pictures.
I don't know if they ship to the US. I would suggest to ask Basti on facebook directly. Send greetings from me.
My son is getting to the point where he needs a suspension bike, unfortunately a full suspension bike is out of my budget so looking for alternatives is the only option at this point. Any idea/suggestion is welcome.
Great day of riding today at the open weekend at Blue Mtn park in PA.
Here is a vid of him riding today. The video doesn't do it justice on how steep and how rocky/loose some of the sections were. Progression and confidence really increased since last summer. He was able to ride all blue/intermediate runs and a couple of black diamonds. I forgot to charge the go pro, so didn't capture him riding more of the technical runs.
