It depends on your budget. As each of my kids reaches 12-13, I build them a bike. Currently I have two sons (15 and 12) on '85 Trek 560s of appropriate sizes, and my daughter (18) has a Diamondback touring bike. I build with DT shifters, in most cases, and keep 'em simple. So far, it's working--they like the bikes, and enjoy riding. And the *total* for all three bikes with parts & c. is in the neighborhood of $600...

I got a 15 year old, he's getting my bianchi. Although he expressed interest in my Gios, I said no!

Your son is one lucky guy... :mad2: :D

Bought my 13 year old a Schwinn Fastback (Sport) for $600 bucks at Performance. Pretty decent first road bike and rated a best buy by Bicycling Mag. He's doing great. Not so thrilled with the Alex rims but al in all a worthy choice.
