hello, I am looking for your help to decide which bike I should choose for my son. He is 5ft. I was looking at 20" bikes up too $500, but not too many options with 19-20.25TT. Also bikes doesn't have all sealed bearing, not full chromoly. 20.5TT I found more options, but I think he is too small for it.

https://www.danscomp.com/products-BIKES/102675/2016_Premium_Solo_Bike.html ----20TT, only this one with all sealed bearings, but some say that Premium are not a quality bikes

https://www.danscomp.com/products-BIKES/102709/2016_Fit_Pledge_Bike.html ----20TT

https://www.danscomp.com/products-BIKES/102646/2016_United_Supreme_Bike.html -----20.25TT

https://www.danscomp.com/products-BIKES/102597/2016_Verde_Eon_Bike.html ------20.25TT

https://www.danscomp.com/products-BIKES/102631/2016_We_The_People_Curse_Bike.html ----20.25TT

Any ideas?

With your budget id buy this Kink Gap, which has a main triangle of 4130, sealed bb, sealed rear wheel, and spend the extra on upgrading the front wheel to a sealed hub.

Kink Gap has 20.5TT, that will be ok for him, he is 5ft

I had the exact same issue come up like two years ago. 10 year old, 5 feet, blah blah.

I got him a Fit Dugan 1. At the time, that was a 20.25" TT, but that may have changed.

I love that bike. I didn't click the links, but if you found a 20.25 inch Fit, do that.

A lot of the low end Kinks are American BB and cup headsets. I know you said you don't care, but if he ever wants to upgrade stuff, it will matter.

2016 Fit dugan 1 is 20.75TT, I think that will be too big for him, isn't it?

Any problems with Fly bikes? Idk, not too many people are happy with warranty and parts reliability, but specs looks good.

So I'm trying to choose from:

2016 WTP Curse
