A bike isn't something you should buy with the plan of handing it down to your children. That will just get the in the way of riding it. **** they might not even fit on it properly.

edit: the consumerist mentality of buying something just because it is exclusive disgusts me.
Sorry dude, but Mike DeSalvo is hardly some "random builder".
