Plan to buy my 9 year old daughter her first real mountain bike for Christmas. She has ridden the 14" fire, which was a hair big but totally manageable. Both the Marin and Specialized offer a 13" frame. I can get each bike for roughly the same price (with disc brakes). Anyone have advice on how to decide which to go with? Looking for a long term answer as I am willing to bet she will grow into it by summer at the latest.
FYI - she is almost to big for the 24". If I bought one I would have to replace in 6-12 months. She has proven she can peddle the 26" tires... and I like the fact she will have it for at least two years
