    Another reason to support your LBS

    So I have two boys, one turns 3 tomorrow and other is 4. I got the 4 yr old a bike with training wheels for his birthday in June so the little one wanted one also. I got him one a few weeks later. Anyhow the little one is terrified of it since we brought it home and won't even sit on it.

    Yesterday I take them to Mojo Wheels here in Denver so dad could do some test rides and buy myself a new rig( Bronson C). Well while I am out playing in the dirt behind the shop the guys that work there get the little one riding. I walk back in from a 15 minute test ride to see him pedaling around the store. He's hooked now and we spent most of today with both of em riding, mom is out of town so i haven't even gotten to take my new rig out. We never would have had that experience at a chain store that has employees that don't ride. Dad got a good deal on a great bike and Mojo made my son a rider.
