Any interest in a separate thread to share ideas and info related to kids bikes and gear. I know I have shared a few projects, as have others. Maybe we can share under one thread.

Here is a chronological look at some of my projects:

Big dude looks awesome. What a great father son bonding and fun projects! Di2 and a track bike. Lucky kid.
I just get stock bikes for my son at performance bike with a 12 month guarantee. When he breaks them, they fix it or promise to replace it.

Ryjder (my older son) seems to outgrow them before he breaks them. And, to be honest, I have as much fun building them as he does riding them.

So my little one finally took the training wheels off yesterday. I resisted the urge to push him. So he took off yesterday on his cousin's bike with no help or encouragement. Now he's ready to ride his own. Time to dust off the project bikes from his older brother...

2015 Carlsbad Gran Prix... the sprint for 1st-4th. My son (black/yellow helmet) had just bridged solo to the 3-man breakaway on the previous lap. Unfortunately he had nothing left for the sprint and rolled through in 4th. These youngsters are FAST!
