Bike for a 13yr old

Recommended Posts

Hey, whats up, this is my first time posting here.

 

I'm 13 years old, 6'1 & I weigh 145

 

I'm riding a crf100f right now, and it's getting (gotten) way too small for me.  I'm looking at moving up but I'm not sure what bike to go for.

I'm looking at a few bikes, basically any 250 thumper, or a yz250 2t.  I'd rather ride the yz250, but I'm not sure if it's going to be too much to handle.  I ride mostly trails & a bit of track every now and then.

The reason I didn't mention the 125 was because I don't think it's going to have enough bottom end for trail riding.

 

Also, my parents have me do the work on my bikes myself, so the simplicity of the 2 stroke sounds very attractive. 

 

Any recommendations?

 

 

--edit

 

one other thing, I've been riding for 6 years.

We just found a really good deal on a '14 KTM 250 SX 2t

 

I've read a lot of good things about it, anyone on here have input about it?

If you ride mostly trails, you should upgrade to a WR250F, CRF250X or if you want two stroke KTM 200 XC-W.  That is the next logical step for your age/height.  a 250 2T is too big of a step up bike from CRF100F

$5000 with 9 hours on the engine.

Tires are brand new & fmf silencer installed, all the service work is done, it looks literally brand new.
