    Also aluminum.

    On the kid's bikes, im pretty sure that you can run em as structural, since the stresses arent anywhere near as high.

    So the purple pedals came in. Pretty slim selection on purple pedals for a 1/2" thread. Wasn't sure how they would size up -- think they might be a little big. If so I'll just throw them on the 16" Hotrock instead.

    I don't quite understand the shape of them or the little hook on one edge. Options are open for a better 1/2" thread purple pedal.

    It's nowhere near "ilmfat" specifications, but it'll work for a 3-year-old!

    Her number plate came in today too for her Strider. Weeee!

    Just remember, putting their bikes at "my specs" blew not just my bike budget, but my ENTIRE fun budget for the year.

    Our girls are "collar buddies".

    Yeah I recall you saying that. I need to come up with a 'fun budget' before I get myself in trouble.

    I'm not familiar with 'collar buddies'?

    Same seat collar.

    Long story, summed up by, "I am easily imprinted with other people's mannerisms".

    I do the finances, so its easy, except when I "pre-spend" the fun money and play catch up the rest of the year.

    But the wheels mikesee built for my jabberwocky ARE super dope.

    Pedaling by herself today!!!!!!!!! Even got the hang of pushing herself along with her feet to get rolling and then start pedaling. 3 years old...beat her 5-year-old sister out.

    I'll get some pic/vid tomorrow. I'm pumped.

    One small other touch, added in the purple anodized axle nuts from PorkChopBMX for $6/4 since I was getting a couple other things there.

    Sweet little bike... I will be going thru this when my 1 year old gets a little bigger. Already have a Strider, but am watching for a better balance bike with a handbrake to come along... Strider has been thru about 5 kids now, and may be worn out by the time she's ready. Oh well. It was a $15 Goodwill score from before she was even born. LOL

    Coolest place in the world though.

    The do weekends in the off-season (Sept - May) for a pretty decent rate.

    It looks badass!!! At least I have a little time to save up for it.

    This is awesome. They've been running around on a Strider and a pedal-less bike for around a month or so, and now they're on their own. Couple hours yesterday helping them start off, and today they're doing it themselves. So so excited and pumped for them.


    Just got to get the little one to keep her head up...haha. Looking for her pedals.

    Here's the video I couldn't get to post the other day. Nothing special, but special to me.

    Huge thanks again to everyone for all the help and guidance.
