    My oldest boy (9) is wanting a better bike. He's ridden a couple of department store bikes into the dirt, and wifey and I are talking about a 'better' bike for him.

    Local bike shop carries Giant brand bikes. They look like fairly solid bikes for BMX/trick type riding like he wants to do.

    I know that a couple of you guys have ridden a bike so I figured I could float this one out here.
    Hey JP,
    Up here in Whistler you'll predominantly see Giant, Specialized, Trek and of course my favourite...Santa Cruz.....they are all made in Taiwan at Giant Bikes....very, very good quality. The SRAM Groupos are much more price conscious and they stand up well. Best fork hands down for 'North Shore' riding here in the mud, rain, grit, snow, rain, rain....did I mention rain....is Marzocchi. They are a touch heavier but stand up unbelievable. If you put a 'dirt jump' fork on, he'll have a helluva time breaking it. Don't get him a department store bike....with the broken necks and spines....you can't even take them on the mountain here...

    Thanks for the advice, Doug.

    I looked at the bikes and thought that the frames were pretty tough looking.

    Chromoly or something like that.

    We bought dept store bikes to see that he was going to stick with it. Now that he is riding well and riding hard and staying with it, it is time to invest in a better bike.

    Probably going to be buying one for the little guy, too. He's 7 and starting to ride like his big brother does. Not a Giant, but it's better than a dept store bike.
