So slapheadmofo has inspired me to sign Gwen up for bmx racing.

She's 5.

I got her a mini for her first bike, but she didn't like it. After shorter cranks, she likes it okay, but sticks to her mtb.

When I sign her up to race, should I keep the 120s on her mini or put the stock 145s back on and tell her to get used to it?

Nice!

If she's most comfortable on her mtb, let her start out on that.
Mine actually did his first few races on a 16" with a coaster brake.

Just keep it all about having fun and learning to get around the track without crashing to start out with and see where she takes it from there.

I'm interested, back off! :rant: LMAO. Shoot me over the details...?

I'll measure what I have currently when I get home assuming it's not already stamped on there.

We have ours in gymnastics 1x week and the younger one is starting dance too.
