I'm not set on the exact bike but more just something with room for wider tires and disc brakes.
Just ordered these for my son:
worried about the length... They're 145s which is the shortest they make. Elias is 55" tall and 69lbs which puts him at a standard 130cm ski but he's pretty aggressive/fast, I want these to grow with him (two full years plus this spring plus maybe more?) plus they're rocker/camber/rocker skis so they'll ski a little shorter than a true camber ski (I've learned that with mine). IE They're 145cm but maaaaybe 130 is on the snow unless you really load it up so it should work. It's also comical because they're shorty pow skis that are basically the same width as mine... The reason I went with these is they get great reviews and are on sale but also because he LOVES orange and sharks and this has both so yeah, it's just a question of when he'll be able to get on them, this year or next. Also, his sister is on some short ~80s I think and by the chart she should be on 100~110s. Elias is on 110s so he'll hand his down to his sister (repeatedly). And if this works his next pair will be hand me downs from my wife and so on...
here's the bases:
I own this joint!
yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery, today is a gift, that's why it's called the present.
