    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...

    Do what no one else will for five years, and then you can do what no one else can for the rest of your life.

    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

    Agreed. Already looking into it.
