    I must be doing something right

    The kid is old enough for a bike with pedals, so we get her a Specialized Hotrock 16" for Christmas.

    She's excitedly goin over the finer details, pink basket, Disney princess bell, etc.

    She then stops and looks at me with a slightly puzzled look on her face and asks, "Daddy, how does it fold up?". I had to promise her that her next bike would be a folder.

    It will grow with her better, but just don't let the boys, borrow it to jump stuff, riding it.

    That is adorable.

    My daughter got her first folder this year... a vintage Raleigh 20 that I had purchased and that was waiting for her to grow into it.
