I bought my daughter a road bike that we're gonna build up together, so I'm gonna prevail upon some of you all here for advice.
First and foremost, we're gonna dump the 27" wheels and go for 700cc wheels, or better yet, 650cc wheels. Only if I can find a used bike with 650cc. Beyond that my questions deal towards motivation, she likes gymnastics, but I think this would be something good for her as well on a fitness level.
Any ideas on dealing with a 9 year old, and getting her "into" it?
