    Have you looked into a Trail Gator? http://trailgator.com/ That may be your answer. She can ride on her own and then when she gets tired, you hook her up and tow her along. As she gets older,...

    Nice ride! How did he do? My son wasn't that great on his balance bike his first time out. I think we got about 20 feet before he asked to go back home and switch to his training wheel bike. :)

    Wow. You sure those two bikes closest to the Subie aren't going to punch a hole in the back of the car? I'd be worried about the pedals scratching up the car, the bikes are mounted so close.

    That is a cool looking bike, cme314! Is it new or a revitalized bike? So old-school looking, I love it! Hi to Mississauga, btw! I went to U of T. :)

    Brompton flair

    Does it have to be wheel lights? How about the BikeGlow Safety lights? They look cool. I've seen a couple bikes go by with them on at night and they definitely catch your attention.
