You ask/you answer: How can I convince my son his first 'proper' bike shouldn't be a sports 600?

Published: 03 April 2012

My son understandably wants to get the fastest, coolest bike he can when he graduates from his 33bhp bike, but I feel strongly this is a bad idea, based at least in part of my own experiences of being a young lad.

But if I really push it, the more he'd want it. What's the best approach?
