Probaly more comfortable sleeping on the rocks outside the tent- than all those knobbly bits on the MTB.

I could understand if it were a road or touring bike, but a MTB?

He can have the bike and the tent. I'll take her.

(Of course, she's WAY too young...never mind!)

Speaking as self-confessed uber-protective father of a daughter....I'd be only too happy if she met such a geek so obsessed with his bike and not............... And the fresh air would do her good, too.

Will, next time you and your wife go camping, take along your Trek and see what happens. You'll look kinda cute with a black eye. We'll want a pic.
