Possibly looking for a full susp bike for my son .
He is 11 but is on the taller side for his age ( arnt they all now )
Any good models to look for if I buy second hand .
Don’t want a new heavy thing he won’t ride .
Cheers in advance

    Usual problem impossible to answer if you don't say what you can afford,there are some great ones for £4k and up

    First why a full susser, better value with a hardtail as you will be selling it on fairly quickly as he outgrows it.
    What is he planning on riding and a budget.
    Now where's that "Get Out of Crash Free Card"

    Might be worth looking at older 26 inch wheeled giant anthems or trances if going second hand
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Budget ; was hoping for 2nd hand about £500
    Thanks for input .

    Jump tracks is my best way of describing .

    You will get a lot of bike for £500 if you know what you are buying, I am NOT a biker, I did a lot of research and question asking before having a £2.8k build, but I would never have bought on my own, I assume you know bikes unlike me
