    youngest SS racer EVAH!

    my son...at 2 years 7 weeks....



    he finished the whole 200 yard course without a dab, or a stop.....or a crash.

    but his focus on attempting to nail every single 'bot dot' in the road was his undoing as he finished DFL....the most awesome and funniest DFL ever!

    if you haven't noticed i am one hella-proud Dad

    That's awesome!

    My youngest (6) daughter just started riding without training wheels about a month or so ago. She is riding now but still struggles with getting started and then is squirly as all get out. But she asks me just about every day if I can go out with her so she can practice riding her bike.

    That's awesome!! I predict he's going to like techy rides.

    Our 13yld daughter is starting to ride with my wife some now and our 6yld daughter is just now ready to try some trails (still on a SS like daddy though). She also wants me to ride around the block with her EVERY day.

    Looks like he was born to be a mountain biker! Put him on the smooth road and he starts seeking out whatever bumps he can

    I dunno, I think I could take him. lol, he's awesome for a 2 year old, well done!. He gets a spurt of speed a couple of times and gets it done. Did he start out on a run bike or go directly to pedals? way advanced for 2 yrs old.

    If you want your child to skip the training wheel phase, start them on a run bike.

    you betcha....he was on a strider (balance/run bike) since he was 17 months old....

    popped him on the pedal bike expecting him to go 20'....he did a couple times...and the third time he just took off.....and made me run 3+ miles the first day chasing him around...

    now my 'cross rig has flats and a rack...we ride every day around the park....it rules...
