What to look for when buying a youth bike (grades 7-12):

  • lightweight (32 lbs or less)

  • Narrower tires (2.4 in wide or less)

  • Lower travel in the fork and shock (120mm or less)

  • x-country instead of downhill geometry

  • make sure the frame is the correct size for  the rider (see sizing chart below)

  • If you are not able to buy a brand new bike look for a used version of the bikes listed below at your local bike shop or see the website links below

I selected these bikes on the basis that most parents are not wanting to, or are not able to spend a lot of money on a bike for their teenager.  If you are looking for a higher level of bike just visit my homepage (bikes over $4,000) or my "Bikes" page (bikes under $4,000) for a great selection of hard tail and cross country bikes.  Most of these bikes come in Small and Extra small frame sizes.
