Finding the right bike for your kids for riding on trails isn’t an easy task if you want them to be able to have great suspension. We got to the point on the Honda CRF50s where they were going faster than the suspension would really allow, and it got them into trouble a few times causing some crashes. The next step up in performance are these little racing bikes. You have to go with an MX bike and those bikes come with some definite drawbacks. They are usually quite tall compared to the “trail” bikes. They will typically need to ride them faster and harder to make it up hills since they are 2 stroke and don’t really have much “low end” torque. This poses a significant challenge when they are just learning.
As with anything in life though, that which we persist in doing will become easier. Today’s video talks a little bit about this. In the video you will see a couple of KTM 50SX bikes, a KTM 65 SX, and a Honda CRF 110F. The Honda is the only “trail bike” that I own now. All the others would be considered racing bikes.
