    Fuji kids bikes?

    Hi all, any thoughts on Fuji's line of kid's bikes? My 8 year old has essentially outgrown her IBEX 20-inch mountain bike. Since that one already had a suspension fork and a triple front chain ring, I'm hesitant to back off from either feature, even at a weight penalty. Anyways, I saw this, and feel that it might be about the best value out there for a full-featured bike. Thoughts?

    Was going that route but decided on the adventure 27.5 last minute for my 10yr old. Obviously not the best quality bike at that price. But the fact that the frame is aluminum the welds look really nice and the weight isn't too bad I'm happy with it and he loves it

    Got it. I think she's too small for an adult bike right now though, unfortunately. I had her try to sit on an XS framed 26" (13" frame I think) and she had absolutely no standover. That might work in a year or two, but I think she'll need a new bike before then.

    Yeah he barely makes it, we went with the extra small 13 inch frame and the upper tube comes down on a pretty aggressive angle otherwise it definitely would have been a 24 in
