    I bought a Crosstrail Sport earlier this year, and the front suspension does lock. However, I find myself riding with the suspension locked ~90% of the time, making me question whether I should have...

    Thanks for the advice, I'll take a look. I did read about the "no pedals" training method, but by the time we tried it she was already too scared to give any real effort. I'm hopeful this time...
  10. Good bike for daughter / size recommendation (16/18/20??)

    I'm looking to get a decent quality bike for my daughter. She had a bike before and could ride it fine with training wheels. I tried to show her how to ride without them a bit over a year ago, but...
