Good news - We took my fiance's daughter/my step daughter downhilling at the local Michigan sand dune this weekend. She rode her specialized hard rock kids XC bike, and had a good time. My son also let her take a spin or two on his Grom Hit FSR, she enjoyed it even more. Bad News - Now I need to find another Grom Hit FSR. Hoping to find something in time for her birthday (August). I know they are hard to find, but they are still less expensive than a lil shredder (which I'd love to buy them but don't have the scratch for.) Would like to stick wtih the Grom Hit FSR rather than the previous version simply to have a bit newer bike, unless I get a screaming deal. That said, if anyone knows of a Grom Hit FSR in good shape out there please let me know.
