Looking to upgrade my 9yo old from a kids bike to something better suited for dirt/pump but all I find in stores are free/street style. Are there brands making 18-19” top tube/150-160 crank/ 20” wheel bmx that anyone can recommend?
What would you ride at that age other then your hand me down Mongoose?

How big is he? An 18" wheel might be a better fit.

Yeah I reckon he’d get a couple of years out of an 18” wheeler. I built my son a 20” with 20” tt and it’s a little big for him still, he’s 11, and has 8.25” high bars with a frontload and 160mm cranks. Another year and it’ll probably fit him perfectly. But remember bmx’s are supposed to be small
