20" Hyper System vs 20" Mongoose Ledge 2.1

Postby joseo1 » Sat Jun 01, 2013 2:46 pm

Hello Guys,

I want to buy a better bike for my son, he is going to be 8 years soon and I want him to have a MTB to ride with me.

I found this two aluminum frames bikes at Walmart but I want to hear your opinion:

I wouldn't get a kid a full suspension bike. I would look at hard tails.

Details on the hyper said 37lbs....gotta be a typo I would hope.

X2 on the hardtail for a kid though. Fs looks cool but it creates bad habits, I know cause when i came back to riding it was on my saber, spent several rides this year relearning some things that if u start on a hardtail become second nature. Not to mention the added weight and such on a little kid.

This is about the best geared 20" I can find there.
