    My dream of one day being able to watch my children get involved in a sport I love is becoming a reality... After much deliberation with the wife we have decided to get some minibikes (electric) and eventually move to gas. My ? Is would there be anyone who has the protective gear that their young children have grown out of ? Or know of where one would go about getting the proper gear. I would prefer used gear that a child has grown out of (donations always welcome of course) :)

    My son is 5 and my daughter is 7 (4ft tall and 4.5ft tall)

    Let me know what you have

    Thanks,

    thats awesome to hear! thats one of my dreams too, but kids are far in the future.
    I think i remember both alpinestars and RS Taichi make kids leathers. also check out Helimot http://helimot.com/ I hear good things about them.

    good luck to you and your family.

    Get Razor and mod it with 12" training wheels, get him package Roller Blades guards for protection, don't forget to get him helmet too. Here are my two boys bike ride around the pit.

    OSET for the win my friend. My boy just turned 5 yr old, has been riding his 24V with 12.5" wheels for 1.5 yrs. We are now looking to upgrade to the 36V with 16.5" wheels and disc brakes for him.

    Don't need training wheels, just lower the air pressure in the tires and put them in the grass. Conrad was 4 when he started riding a Razor, took him about 20 minutes of falling to get the hang of it.

    <edit> He was riding the Razor before he could ride a bicycle without training wheels.
