Rated 4 out of 5 by AJ2014 Great light weight MTB
I bought this bike for my 5 year old for Xmas. He rides single track and is towed up the hills by his dad. The bikes dimensions are great for a growing child and the frame does tend to keep their weight rearward of the neutral due to the length of the top bar. Overall its a solid MTB for juniors. Although I do question the fitment of REVO grip shift to any junior MTB as kids of this age bracket 5-9 do not have the grip strength to select the gears. In trying to change gears they are distracted from the track and are changing their hand position potentially losing control of the bike. I had levers fitted as well as front suspension to reduce fatigue.
