Bike Recommendations for Inexperienced 10-Year Old?


Recommended Posts

My 10-year old son has expressed an interest in riding a bike.  He has never ridden a dirtbike before, but has ridden a 4-wheeler a few times.  He is relatively tall for his age and athletic.  He would not be riding on an MX track, but would tag along with me on forest roads/trails and around the farm. 

 

Looking for something that is reliable, fairly easy to maintain, and relatively mild.  Any recommendations on bikes for this situation?  Thanks.

agree with above.

 

find something mellow that wont scare the crap out of him.

 

maybe a xr 200? or xr 100 (dont know the size of them) ridden the 200 before and they have a bit of pep but not too much, pretty light.

 

awesome woods bike that can handle some abuse.
