While the temptation to be a frugal spendthrift is a concern for some, just ask yourself-"did Dad sacrifice for me while I was growing up? How many times? How much did he spend on me? Over how many years?"
And you want to save $********************
How important is your father's health?
Do you want him around to go riding?

Get down to your LBS and spend a modest amount on a beginner's bike. Support the people locally who service your parts and service needs. Ride with your Dad on the weekends to help him get used to riding again. And PLEASE don't forget to buy him a good helmet!!! And gloves! Chances are, he'll enjoy spending time with his offspring, and it will keep him out of trouble in the "gentleman's clubs!"
