Sorry I know this subject gets beats to death. Im looking for a bike for my son. He is 6 going to be 7 the end of Feb. Avg height and weight. Currently rides a 20" mt bike. He rides mountain bike trails way above his age and can handle a Honda 50 motorcycle pretty well. He is wanting to try to learn tricks and jumps. Im thinking a 18" would be the right size. I want him to have a some room to grow into the bike. Price range is around $400 US. I want to get him to best possible but don't need overkill. He really likes the oil slick color. I saw an Elite Destro for around $300. Is that a "good" brand. He also wants foot pegs. Do most bikes come with pegs or is that separate or is that not recommended. Thanks for any help or suggestions. I am a mountain biker and new to BMX.

How tall is he? 6 seems awfully small for an 18.
Fit 14 or fit 16 would be my recommendation

For instance fit sponsors an 8yr old who rides a 14”

If he is serious about learning getting him something to grow into will just hinder his learning IMO

Hello Max. Look into the Fit bike company kids bikes, and Cult brand kids bikes. Both are offering some really high quality stuff in the 14/16/18” wheel range.

My son is 7 and his 18 fits him pretty much like my 20 fits me. I don't think age matters as much as size. The Sunday 18 is pretty nice. My son has one. Sunday Primer.

Thanks for all the help. I ended up ordering a Fit Eighteen 18" with the freecoaster. I was back and forth about 16" and 18". Hopefully this wont be to big for him. He is coming off a broken leg so it will probably be mid January before he is back 100%. Here's a pic from last spring playing around in the yard. Photo

Thats awesome Max. Your boy will be beyond stoked, and surely have the nicest ride around! And when he gets the hang of the freecoaster he'll be many steps ahead of the rest of the kids his age when the jump to 20" bikes.
