First ride of his life. Still too small to go any distance.

What a beautiful day for a ride with Papa! Just a bit of advice, you might want to invest in fenders. Especially for the rear wheel (with a DIY mudflap) - it will keep dirt and what not from being kicked up into your baby's sitting area.

Thanks for the fender tip!

I use that single speed cruiser for beach rides, and dog walks (dog bikes I guess). I'll post some photos with the dog and wife in tow. I was so happy that day. Another month or two and we'll try a beach ride with a baby.

No, but the multiple chainrings are. He's just leaving it on the granny for now.

He's actually got 2 gloves on that one hand. Found the other 2 gloves at school yesterday on the playground.

For anyone who cares to know: it is absolutely possible to do a perfect Rohloff setup with non-Rohloff OEM dropouts (vertical, in my case, using the OEM-2 axle plate), disc brakes, *and* a ball-post axle-mounted trailer hitch (e.g., Chariot hitch). This last bit was a deal-breaker for me—had i not been able to pull the trailer, i would not have converted to the Rohloff. The gear box can take surprisingly tight cable bends to no ill effect.

Hauling the +100lbs of trailer up 9% hills on the Rohloff is better than excellent. Using the same bike (mostly without trailer, sometimes with) to pass carbon-frame road warriors: priceless.

Rode with my son yesterday, ~9 miles to the bank (to get his allowance) and to the comic book store (to spend it). At one point he said 'I don't know what's specifically fun about this but just riding your bike is a lot of fun'

Then he celebrated when I was letting him punch the atm buttons by accidentally hitting the 'quick $300' button instead of the $20 button.

This is how my dog and I travel together. We were on a tour together in this picture but take away just the panniers and the sleeping pad on top of the trailer, add a truck bag, and that's our everyday riding rig.
