I don't ride so why I am here?
Because my son is an 11yo junior road/cyclocross/triathlon racer and my husband and I need to learn a lot about the sport. I searched for "junior" and did not come up with much but did enjoy the descriptions of how to buy a bike. I am sure my son will enjoy the site as well. Any advice on where to turn for junior specific info on training, bike purchases (the darn boy just keeps growing), etc. would be appreciated. There does not seem to be a clearinghouse site on this topic, perhaps because most kids have parents who know what they are doing?
The answer to the question, how many people and how many trips to the bike shop does it take to fix a flat in our family is 3 and 4. But we did it!
