Both my girls (ages 11 and 9) had outgrown their old bikes and I was struggling with what to buy them. My younger daughter wasn't experienced in riding and in fact had she just recently dumped her training wheels, but I knew she would out grow a 24" by next summer (or sooner). I was worried about the size and weight of a larger bike combined with her lack of confidence. And, I couldn't buy the older one a nice new bike without getting something for the other. Anyway, after visiting a couple of shops on a rainy Saturday, we ended up picking up 2 Trek Skyes (13"). The girls absolutely love them which makes me very happy.
That was two months ago....last weekend, I took them on their first trail ride. Even with it being 100 degrees out, we had a blast. At times, the younger one needed some help getting started on uneven ground, but it was more of a confidence issue than anything else.
They did great!!
