Looking for advice on buying a new bike for 8 year old who is loving his mountain biking. Currently riding a Hot Rock Specialized 20" and as a tall lad he's outgrown the bike. He is doing quite a bit of technical riding now - cross country/trail centres.
So far thinking front suspension again and looked at the Specialized and Merida (same thing but packaged differently).
Any advice on what would be a good next bike to bring him on much appreciated!
