I did. Still kick myself for it. I ordered his mainly for the frame knowing he would need better drive train. Finding a good quality ride for a 10 year old is not an easy task. He LOVES his bike and that is all that should matter. I am the one filled with disappointment. I totally could have got him something from any department store but that is not the place to purchase a bike. Luckily for me my local bike shop feels my pain and has helped me get his ride straight.
