    The Father & Son bond

    As a proud owner and rider of a 1975 Monark, and being zillion times more proud father to Franz (two years in a couple of months) what can a father do? Buy him the best! He┤s now a member of "the blue team of Monark" (He really had no choice, and chances are he wants to ride Crescent in the future...).

    Sweet! My son wants a pugsley but they don't make one w/ 20" wheels. There is an approximation w/ 24" wheels but even half-price isn't cheap...

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO 105

    Your son has his helmet on backward and it should sit level on his head -- like this.

    Actually, Franz is a bit too small for his 12┤ (european size) bike! But I just had to hurry getting him the Monark before someone in mine or my wifes family surprises us with a "we bought him a bike for Christmas or birthday"....

    Ron H: Well nah! Its the premium brand Limar and its the smallest size of race-helmet. He usually wears a cap underneath to get a "safe and snug" fit. To my knowledge, you can never fit a kids helmet 100% because they dont want to. But thanks for the concern!

    THAT could be your own thread... Otherwise, see the thread called "Family day in SWEDEN". Boys dont count?

    That's part of why I'm getting my 3yo son a nice bike this fall (one that can easily be handed down to my 1yo when they grow).
