When my little sister was still riding a 24" bike we batted around the idea of getting a carbon fork meant for a racing BMX bike.

I know he has done Mt. Washington once you wrote all about it. But didn't you ride Mt. Washington first? Wasn't he inspired by you? I would be impressed if your son then 7 or 6 woke up one day before you rode the mountain and said "Dad, I want to ride Mt. Washington and you are going to help me do it."

When I was 8 years old I lived in Italy. I was riding a single speed pea green steel second had bike. It had red handles on the bars and a red seat. I don't remember anything else. I don't know how heavy it was but all I knew is that it was my bike and with that bike I could go further than I imagined.
One of my grandmothers neighbors asked me where I was going with that bike.
I told her I was going to ride to Naples. Two seconds later I hit the deck. Of course I never made it to Naples but to me Naples was another world.

My bike was my escape. And today it still is my escape.

Naples, Sorrento, the Amalfi coast, Rome, have all been conquered long ago. :D
