ya this and how tall is he and is he going to race a lot or just every once in a while because racing is all i do and you need a good bike for it and when you are a little kid the lighter the better

ya gt is good for racing but price wise they are not worth it and haro imo only has good older kid race bikes se bikes are also good starter racing bikes that is what i ride

Probably not the best choice for a 5-year old wanting to race.

id go with the haro junior if hes just begining and as he gets better and more into it you can just start adding better parts because if he doesnt like racing then you didnt blow to much money and its the shortest top tube length i know of i may be wrong tho i believe its 18.5 " the only real thing that could be an issue on it is the unsealed hubs but haro also comes with a trade in thingy so that once he out grows it he can get a huge discount on another bike by trading it in and the trade in policy also works for premium bikes but you also never specified if he would be racing in 24" or 20"

Hes only starting out , dont want to spend a ton ,under 300.00, to start. He says he wants to do it , but who knows at that age, willing to let him try, hes kinda little about 36 lbs and 3'3" and by next summer who knows...lol. and hes only going to be racing summer months, we live in Western NY, cant race a ton. but for now this is it....thanks for all everyones help.
