    That which does not kill us...

    ...makes us stronger. Riding the Surly today with a "tag-along" and a 40 lb. passenger that finds great joy in spotting squirrels, deer, horse poop on the ground, etc. The nice thing is that I can immediately tell when he is not helping out---the little Trek has an ACS freewheel and the thing starts to whine when junior is slackin'.

    Without freedom of choice, there is no creativity. Without creativity, there is no life. The body dies.

    I've got 3 kids, and my youngest is "Alleycat age". His older brother and sister used to just go along for the ride, but Quinn is a real turbo!
    Unfortunately, as of late he's taken to just pedaling on the down hills, where he gets the most bang for his buck!

    New Respect

    Damn, I think I just found some serious new respect for you Fo'. That's quite the man to be pulling 2 munchkins behind a SS You must have gotten a good leg workout with that combo.

    To the OP Good to have that freewheel so you can know when junior could be up to something - One poster reported his son liked to get up on the saddle and "surf".

    Quinn turns 18 months the day after valentine's day. He, also, is a turbo, actually its more like a mean streak - that happens when your six year old brother beats up on ya alot. Here he is during his first hockey practice just after Christmas(I put him through his paces)- His slapshot is very impressive for a little guy. Also, his first bike ride
    (sorry geared content).

    My kids tag along in a seat but they fight over who gets a "turn" I would be scared to death to put them on a tag along though both are at 35lbs (and 14 months apart) and can ride on their own now!
    I am CHEAP
