    Welcome I liked the way he just picked himself up and dusted himself off! Bet you can't wait to get him on that Banshee.

    Hey, I'm Jim, 35 years old with three offspring I'm a returning mountain biker, already broken a couple of ribs so far this year and trying to avoid a repeat!!

    My kids are Sophie who is 6 and a half now,
    Ethan who's coming 5 in a couple of months,
    Erin who is turning 3 next week.

    I love them to bits, they've all got bikes, well, Erin gets hers this weekend for her birthday gift.

    Hi - I am chuck, 44 years old. this is an awesome forum. I have 3 awesome kids. Emma - 12, Charlie - 9.9, Leo - just hit 5 today. I just got them riding on some loops Spring of '13. Emma rocks a trek MT220 (24" she bought with yard sale earnings) in purple, and she is too big for it. Charlie is riding a 20" trek, also too little, and Leo's quiver is a strider knock off (like it better than strider), a cruiser, and a big box 10" hand-me-down bmx style bike. It will be an expensive spring considering they all need new rides and I just bought a gently used Surly Krampus...

    Here are some pics of Leo on the attack:

    He always wants to ditch school and go ride, and I can appreciate that.

    AJ here. Lisa (3.5y) got her Supurb BO12 today. We took it out the box, assembled it and off she went. Think she will have little trouble passing on the Strider to one of her little friends...

    Only introduced at Interbike last year. German brand/design. Lisa her bike is from the first production run. First impression is very good, solid build and as light as it can get within a EUR 400 price tag

    Still amazed how quick she picked up cycling. The Strider has def helped a lot there. Also think it was a good thing we started with a 12" bike even though she will probably on a 14" bike in no time.

    Mark here. Last two years I have been riding with my now almost 9 year old daughter in the Netherlands. I am currently looking to get her a small 26" bike we can build up with some light parts and a fork that actually does something.
