Specialized do the Hotrock in a variety of guises including the full suspension A1 FSR. Scott do a junior as well.

If your feeling adventurous have a look at this although it may be a tad big for a 7 year old: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 290#425290

Reminds me of the German forum topic, too small but maybe some good ideas.

Had that trouble years back,most the kids so called mtbs were heavier than my own :shock: and real heavy shifting gears..feel sorry for the small blighters :? Girlfriend at the time had a 10 year old daughter that was real keen,bought her an entry level ally frame Muddyfox with LX and she got on great with it,remember them or they even still around? Was'nt painted,was bare clearcoated ally.

Islabikes again, Son got one for xmas - its great and really light.

they hold their price really well - in half decent nick you should get at around 2/3 rds of the cost back.

Just remember to measure your child in the way they describe, that way you'll be sure it fits them when it arrives. Isn't that right Dr S. :)
