also, what's the advantage of outboard bearings ?? are they beneficial to the mini/junior sized riders?
Probablely not. Little muscles don't produce a lot of power.
Although I suppose if the frame designer had them in mind, then use the outboard bearings.
keep in mind that the may increase the width between the pedals (q-factor).
You do not want the pedals to far apart as this can cause knee and hip pain.
