New cycle porn!

Well, the Trike arrived today. Kyra remembered as soon as she saw the box and when started pulling things out, she was all smiles and dancing around. As soon as I got the back wheels attached, she was trying to throw a leg over!

The frame:



The fork. Schwinn/Pacific was nice enough to install the front wheel, too!



She's already abusing her cutness, not that I mind one bit, but when she's older.... She kept coming over and hugging me to inspire me to work faster.



And the inagural ride. She had a blast!

Awww, that's so cool! Funny how to this day we all still kinda get that same look on our faces when we get a new bike.
Very nice

You're right, it doesn't. I'll have to do some deep digging to try and find a picture I have of my two girls when they were 3-4 on their trikes with a friend. They looked like they were up to no good.
