The Kona Stinky Jr. is another good choice. I built this one for my son's 9th bithday and he loves it.DiRt DeViL said:Nice pics, what size is that Turner? I'm starting to look for a new frame for my 8yr old.

He's currently riding a Diamondback Octane 24, here's an older version if his bike.
Since that pic was taken the stem, handlebar and cranks were changed.
That is cool stuff you are doing! You are right about the kids will come, all they need is an opportunity.DiRt DeViL said:I'm in Puerto Rico and I'm also the volunteer that works with the kids.
We group them by age and the youngest class is "Rueditas" (training wheels) which is open then 1-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10. We also made a Pre-Juinior (11-12) and Junior A (13-14) for the bigger kids.
We organize an annual kids festival and do XC, DS and DH races exclusivelly for kids, this year was fun and my kid did 1st in DH (2nd overall), 3rd in DS and 4th in XC. So far he's leading the 7-8yr old class by 10 points with 2 races to go.
If you want to see kids races in your area the best way is to approach the organizer/promoter and volunteer to do so. That was what I did and have been involved in the kids program along with my wife for 2 seasons now.
If you build a kids course; believe me, they will come.
