Taught my boy to ride update

Well he's been doing real well on his 16" bike, but now he's been eyeing bikes with hand brakes. So I bought him this Schwinn. It has 20" wheels so it's as big as his friend's bike's. It has hand and coaster brakes. He's happy as a clam.

My other trouble was that my main bike is a road bike. I have a dept store mountain bike but you know, any excuse to get a new one, right? So to have a better time "playing/riding" with the kids I bought this new Jamis Durango. I already put 26x1.5 slicks on it. It's city only for me.

Hope this picture attaches...

Looks as if you will have lots of fun together, but I think it will be more manageable for him if you put lower bars on the Schwinn
