    N+2 !!!

    Traumatic, too. Neither one for me!

    Son is getting married in the spring, so managed to find a good deal on a bike for him that is a 2011 model, and a 2013 model of the same thing for his bride. Very nice bikes for the money - the Giant Escape. Should give the kids some inexpensive fun, will be including a bike rack in the gift package. Nice to be able to pick up something for them from the LBS.

    What was the bride's reply in that old song? "I'll be damned if I'll be jammed on a bicycle built for two!"

    Very neat wedding gift for them, seems thoughtful and actually useful. Hope the spring wedding is a happy occasion for everyone.

    Thanks! We are very excited about our new daughter.

    I was afraid my passion was pointing me toward the bikes for the kids - it would be rather immature to give them the gift I'd want. But they are very economical (read: cheap), and I hope that the bikes will give them something more lasting than some fruffie wedding gift registry thing. And they live near the bride's folks, who like to ride, too.

    Still was traumatic to repeatedly walk past the 29er I have been drooling over this past year...
