She outgrew the 24" bike I made for her a couple of years ago. I used her Mom's light racer-girl wheels and SID world cup that have been gathering dust since the girl arrived. She's not a "playful" rider or a "mini-hucker" like her little brothers. The girl likes to sit and motor. I wanted a bike that was predictable and stable, but carried speed through the corners. I also tried to hit the sizing so that she can manage it now, but not outgrow it next year. We've got a couple of rides on it so far, and it is perfect. She's pushing her brothers and is confident on the trail. It does everything better than her last bike.
I have been feeling a little sheepish about fancy bikes for the kids. That was until Iwas talking to one of the other Dads at karate class and he told me that he spends $1800/year for each of his boys for ice hockey ice time. And that doesn't include equipment. Yikes! I guess the older boy will get the hydro disks on his 24" bike this winter...
Love to see the kids out there riding! Cheers! B
