Kids bikes options

My daughter is showing interest in following me around off of the pavement. I'd like to get her something with gears and less steel. Her current bike is a freaking anchor so Al frame and accessories is a must. Carbon is probably out

She's on a 20" frame, I've seem Jamis and Specialized have offerings but $300+ for a bike she'll use for a couple of years seems steep. Is there anything in more of a mid range that anyone has good experiences with?

How old is she?

I assume you mean a 20" wheel bike - if so, you might keep an eye out for an XS or even an XXS frame 26" wheel bike. It will be a little clumsy at first, but she'll get used to it and will be able to use it for years. I just found an XS Specialized with a front suspension fork for my 8 year old niece and she was riding fine. She is pretty tall, though.

She's freakishly tall but she's only 6. She'll be on a bigger bike soon thus the desire to save some green on this one. And yea, I meant 20" wheels.

I'll keep an eye out for an XS or XXS, thanks.
