    We purchased the 2020 model that has the spring front suspension. $399

    The bike looks good and I suspect it will do the job for my 7 year old, but for the money they should improve a few things. We had to buy a separate seat post and Bontrager comfort kids seat since he complained the seat wasn't comfortable. Seems like we are constantly having the pull the kickstand away from the bike so it doesn't rub the back tire. Easy enough to do, but....

    Pros
    Twist gear shifter

    Cons
    Uncomfortable seat

    Non-standard seat post so you must pay more for a new post if you want a new seat

    Kickstand rubs tire if bumped -- even when keeping the screw tight

    Expensive

    No quick release on seat or front tire

    I bought this bike for my 8 year old son when we first got into mountain biking. My son is now turning 10 in a week and I'm having to upgrade his bike. Now to be far my son rides this bike hard, we have replaced the cassette and the shifter. The cassette wore out in 6 months. He rides real single trails with me and the bike just ain't made for that abuse. But, if your kid isn't going to ride hard the bike would probably be great.

    Pros
    Good starter bike

    Cons
    Won't hold up to real mountain bike trails

    I bought each of my two children one this past Christmas. My son rode his off into a 7' ditch on our first ride. He slammed pretty hard and broke the shifter and front brake. The bike shop that I bought them from did the labor at no cost to repair the bike and also fixed the brakes for free. I upgraded the shifters to rapid shifter instead of the twist shifters. I just wish I had a bike this tough when I was a kid. Upgrades only cost me $40.

    Pros
    Tough and priced well

    Cons
    Cheap components and pinch brakes

    Great for the time being...it's my daughters first mountain bike. I'm already wishing I would have spent a little more to get some upgraded features. Next step may be an adult 13 frame with hydraulic disc since she's pretty serious about hitting the trails. Overall, a nice bike for a small child

    Pros
    Great fit for my daughter who's 50 inches tall and 50LB's
    Easy to shift gears for a child
    Able to handle moderate Trail riding

    Cons
    Brakes aren't great
    This particular model doesn't come with front suspension.
