    Is that a 15" frame? It looks so much more "proportional" than mine with 26" wheels. What a great way to spend time together. I'm sure he'll cherish those memories for many, many years.

    That's absolutely amazing! The little tiger will probably end up a pro, and if not, so what he'll still be the happiest in the world, and that's what's important.

    This is why god created grandparents....to do all the stuff all the stuff our folks said "No way in hell!" to. My folks let my kid get away with stuff they would have tanned my hid for...I'm so proud, I finally raised my parents right!
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    It's also great to see the family unit at work here. Finding commonalities with family members is indeed rare and special.

    You have any riding goals, or are you "just riding along?"

    Nice bike. Question abt the rear fender .....

    I really like the way the rear fender is mounted. I am currently using the SKS seatpost-clamp type fender and it doesn't look as neat as what you have.

    Could you post more info about the rear fender ?

    Thanks,
    Gak

    It is made by a UK company called CRUD, and is really designed for the front,but as you can see it works well on the rear.
