What 20" bike for son

3/20/2014 12:32 PM

I am looking to get my son a new bike. He is paying for most of it and I want to make sure he gets themost of his money. Can someone tell me which of the bikes would be best or if there is another in the $200.00-$250.00 range that may be better. Thank in advance for your help.

Framed Attack
Fiction Epic
DK Cygnus
Mongoose 900

The kink frame is steel rather than chromoly. Is that not really a big diffrence. It will only be a 70 lb kid riding it. What am I looking at on the kink that makes it the better bike. Yes I am a noob.

Theres another thread about the mode 900, but, that really does seem to be the best bang for your buck in that price range. I would have started on that had I been smarter.

Refs: Tito24, RiverSideRider, Stussy, Nettyspaghetti, Daniel24, Freddydapice, BrokenBMX, SuperstarDK, HardBMX_Tim. There's more, but I'm too lazy to look them up, haha.
