Like every mtb kid in the sts, my boy watched the Cranxwork slopestyle event.
And like every kid, he now wants a dirt jumper. He has hit the local jumps, with a bmx and mtb, but alas, he wants a dirt jumper. And he has saved up enough money via cutting lawns, and begging grandma for money.

My boy is 8 and built solid.

So… looking a dirt jumpers - I can get a deal on

However, I know nothing about dirt jumpers. And I also wonder about the 20 inch wheel size. Pretty sure if I buy a 20 inch wheel he will grow out of it immediately.

Thoughts from the dirt jumpers on NSMB?

20" for sure. Size won't be a problem, they come in a huge range of lengths to fit anyone..
