  1. Hello All...figured I'd take a break from my own bike to ask a question related to my son. He'll be turning seven this summer, and has pretty much outgrown the '94 JR50 I built for him. Both feet are flat on the ground with knees bent, with the shocks and rear seat posts in their highest positions. Now, the JR is a notoriously short bike (18" seat height in lowest setting), and I'm thinking something in the height of a CRF50 or KTM SX50 Junior would be correct for him...and I can put a "tall seat" and risers on that to keep him on the bike if he spurts before the end of a second season. The challenge I'm facing is finding the right bike for him with the kind of riding he wants to do in our area. He wants nothing to do with the track, which is fine by me. His request is to get into single-track/GNCC/TORCS-type aggressive riding with me here in central Texas (rocky, technical, cactus needles, hand-bashing, 10+ mile loops, 100-degree afternoons all summer long). If I look at a CRF or TTR, I get a heavy bike (hard for an almost-seven-year-old to muscle over rocks and tree roots) with spring-only suspension, drum brakes and a 10" front wheel that stinks outside of a groomed track or back-yard trail. If I look at KTM or JKS (Polini clones) in the "junior" heights, I'm looking at a bike that fits, is light, has better suspension and brakes...but that would likely overheat quite a bit in slow technical sections and has a reputation of eating clutches even on a track. I can't imagine how they'd hold up to partial-throttle off-roading over two seasons. We won't be able to just walk back to the truck in the pits for spare parts like in the MX world...things get serious multiple miles from camp. If I go with a Chinese equivalent (SSR 70C), I get slightly better suspension that can be tuned, hydraulic brakes and the ability to run a 12" front wheel for better behavior in loose rocks and roots...but I also get worries regarding durability when we get serious off-road (legends of Chinese metallurgy and QC). So...to the parents that "do the desert" or get serious off-road with youngsters (at least at the "family enduro" level) in hot-weather environments... What is the best option for a bike that will last two years, has about a 24" seat height and will work with an aggressive boy who wishes to attack "hill country" the way most boys want to attack a motocross track?
