    I've taught both of my boys to ride. In hindsight, I wish I had purchased a real balance bike and never let them ride a pedal bike with training wheels. Interestingly, my kids are very different...

    This is just a local club event - there's nothing in the rules regarding gearing. As long as he has a helmet and air in the tires, he's good to go. I'm sure there will be some kids with real road...

    I dig the way the male part of the lock mechanism points back at the rider. This looks like a great way to impale you thigh or tear your scorotom off in an accident. Brilliant industrial design!

    Yes - I'm inferring the idea of a person getting a tattoo about his current passions and trends which becomes outdated and stale, thus becoming an embarrassing blemish. Google the sh*t I'm talking...

    For $100 frame, fork + usable odds/ends, I don't think you have much to loose in experimenting with fixed. My C-dale frame is significantly nicer that, say, my new nashbar aluminum fixed frame -...

    FWIW - the Cannondale dropouts are aluminum and quite soft. The nuts will dig into the dropouts if you crank down on them and I haven't had any issues with the nuts slipping. I can see where...
