My 13 year-old son is now big enough to ride my Merlin Extralight. He tried it for the first time last night and was blown away with how much faster it was than his Mountain Bike. I was riding his bike and was working like a fiend just to keep him in sight.
Time to search for a decent used bike for him?Tig

Kids outgrow road bikes too fast at that age to justify a brand new one. The few junior racers I ride with all got great deals on used bikes like OCLV's. Maybe a compact geometry would last a little longer than a standard frame in his size. Check out the used ones at LBS's or search e-bay.
