Hey all, just looking for some friendly advice here. My 9 yr old boy wants to start bmx racing and I have no idea what size or weight bike to get him. He is 53" inches tall and 25" inseam (questions the sales rep asked me at J&R bike store). The sales rep mentioned a redline MX20 "Expert" size but I looked up the specs and this bike weighs 23 lbs this seems a little on the heavier side for a racing bike as well as a 9 year old. I want him to have something light enough for him to manhandle on the track but reasonable in price if that even exists smile . Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
