I'm after a reasonably priced micro for my boy to give BMXing a go on. Prefer Wellington/ Kapiti.

How urgent ?

I will be selling my son's Micro Mini intense soon. It's a 20" wheel Micro Mini

Not too urgent, playing soccer also this year for the first time so he'll be occupied for a while. BMX club night round the corner is Friday which is also his training day so may be a while.

What's the big difference between 18 and 20" micros? He's nearly 7 but only 110cm and less than 20kg....

You will be wanting a mini not a micro. 18"wheels are great if you are little but you want to be moving them up to a 20"wheel asap..
my 6yo is 110cms and has been riding a Mini for a year and a bit

The micro mini I have would be a good start as its 20"

Cool, have seen height charts online that said micros up to about 130 and mini's from 125, but he can ride a 20" BMX now so don't see much issue. I think the BMX club (Kapiti) round the corner has bikes they lend so I'll have another chat to the lady who runs it.

I have a Diamondback Reactor Jr stashed away that I thought my kids could use to try BMX but we are just going straight to more general bikes/mountain bikes. It needs a bit of sorting but for say $50 would be a good cheap starting point.

Thanks for the offer dragon_style, I'd need some advice from the likes of dodgy_matt first, but I suspect a Juniorr may be a stretch too far for him.

Size charts online put him on a micro at 110cm but dodgy_matt reckons a mini would be a good start point. I don't want to put him on anything too big to start....

Junior will be too big at the moment for him dwqknz,

Hey dragon_style I could be keen on the jr for when my boy gets a bit bigger?

Cool, PM me to organise. Maybe I could tempt you with a GT Pro Series classic steel cruiser that I was going to use to thrash around the track - clear some more space in the chaos.

Hey Matt let me know what ends up happening tomorrow with your intense frame and if you're going to take dragon_style up on the Junior. Cheers
