Fuji Dynamite 24
Absolutely dynamite. This is a fantastic kids’ bike at a good price. Outfitted with a few key features (and omitting other distracting add-ons), this Fuji is configured just right for a lot of kids out there.
The Dynamite has an adjustable suspension fork, so a rider can hit the trails behind the house and not get too rattled. The Dynamite has an aluminum frame, so it’s nice and light (an important feature when you only weigh 70 pounds). It comes equipped with 7 gears controlled by a single grip-shifter, a combination that seems to be just about the right amount of complexity for kids moving into their first geared bike. The Dynamite comes in some great colors, and it should last long enough to be handed down to a little brother or sister (or traded in for the next size bike).
