My lad is in need of a new bike if for no other reason than so I can actually ride my own bikes! Life is complicated by what he thinks he wants to do with it, ride around on the street doing tricks with his mate, local pump track, park, dirt etc. and be capable of actually being ridden up and down hill at a trail centre. So tall order for a single bit of kit.
I've done a bit of research and seems to me something like a 4X style bike might fit the bill without anything being hopelessly compromised. That line of thinking took me to a custom build using something like an Identiti Krisis frame, we already have most of the other expensive bits. Then I was doing some poking around on the web for other reasons and up popped a Cotic BFe, so I thought get a small frame and that might do the job.
Wondering what the panels views are on the above frames or are there some other options I've overlooked.
