minibikes for kids

Hey,
my SIL emailed me the other day to ask what i thought about a particular minibike for my nephew. never had one myself, don't know anyone who has ridden one, so i thought i'd query here to see what you guys think. specs on the neph in question: 9 yrs, 55#, 3'8" -- that's 25kg and 1.3m for our international listeners. he is athletic, if you can say that about a 9yo; plays soccer and basketball, training wheels came off the bicycle some years ago. do you think a kid his size can handle the 50cc bike or should they go for the 30? TIA!

In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?

My kids' first bike was a Suzuki JR50 - automatic clutch and spring-ONLY suspension. One was riding from about 2 years old, other from 6.

Their second was a Honda XL75.

Both worked GREAT!

I would check craigslist you can get in good shape used yamaha pw50's for about 300.00 or the honda cr50,z50, xr50 for around 500.00 . Or pw80's for around 500.00 . Much better bikes than the ones from pep boys.
