Ideal kid bike?


Recommended Posts

I want to get my 11 year old son a trials bike. Gas powered is preferred. The riding around here, in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada, is long climbs with steep technical trails. Me and my buddies are less into observed trials, more into climbing steep rock faces and wicked rooty sections. Electric doesn't cut it here.

This is obviously not the type of terrain for my beginner son, who has no motorized experience, but is a decent mountain biker. Is a 125 to big?

Hi Brad,My 13 year old has a Beta 80 big wheel and  I don't think he's ever been limited by the power it would certainly go up anything he was brave enough to attempt.

Lot cheaper than a 125 too and seem to hold there value well, be my pick but still could be a stretch for an 11 year old..
