Any suggestions on locating a used BMX bike for a 4 year old (16" wheels)? The Redline Pit Boss fit him, but $300 is a bit steep for a kid that enjoys crashing his toys. Any assistance would be appreciated.
If he does not plan on racing, just about any ( I shudder to even say this) department store bike will work. Just swap out the parts you don't like and that will hold him over for another year.
Spend the money on the Pitboss or Grom X. Free Agent also makes a nice little 16 incher called the Lil' Homie and is not quite as expensive as the pit boss. Call Scott @ bike works he can hook you up with Free Agent stuff VERY affordably 425-334-7812.
If you think he will start racing, skip the 16 and go for a used "race mini"
My son is 10 and when he is not racing, he still hops on his 16 incher quite often. But if I had bought the department store bike way back when, there is no way it would still be around for him to ride....
