    Nothing says Merry Christmas to my son like a new Gromhit!

    I've been holding this bike in the garage hidden from view for over 2 years. I finally got to give it to him!
    Happy Holidays all!

    There are areas of my garage where my boys’ curiosity for some reason never wanders, and I still wonder why, since there’s always cool stuff in there. I was able to hide the bike I built up for my older son for a span of about 4 months and not once did his eyes dart over to the section of the garage where his bike was stashed… which is almost in plain view.

    I have the Nashbar bike racks, 4 bikes on each and had it on the back side which goes against the garage wall. Since he is 6/7 at the time and the bike is fairly big for a 24", he never even gave it a thought that it was his. I bought it when there was a buzz that the Gromhit was discontinued and there was a flurry of folks looking for one. I found it for less than a grand shipped from Canada to the US new, so I went for it. I have actually upgraded it to 9 speed and used the 8 speed for something else. Now I need a helmet and chest protector then the wait til May!

    For Christmas 2011 I bought both my sons Six-Six-One carbon full-face helmets. Chainlove had them for a mere $99 each, so it was a super-unpass-up-able deal. You might want to check them out periodically—I check the site multiple times per day and sometimes there are some great deals.
