    ...so I'm open to suggestions on what I should get him for his first bike.

    (I already have his first drum kit picked out)

    I'm less than a mile away from a bmx track so I'll probably pick up a cruiser from craigslist if he expresses any interest in racing. god, i hope he does.

    if he wasn't a he, then i would have suggested one of these for when the apocalypse comes and the world is overrun with zombies.

    It's worth the effort. I think it's the best way to teach a kid to ride. If you get the above bmx, beauty BTW, just take the pedals off and slam the seat down.

    Scientific Name Camp would be far more appropriate. I spend most my hours trying to remember latin gibberish. Not much time for RM when I have all this keying out and rote memorization of a bunch of stupid living organisms going on. Im using the sell-back money from my botany books to buy roundup.

    This bike has been hanging on my daughters wall since she was -2months old.

    (the pink one)



    It was only $70, anymore than that even I thought was stupid to spend on a bike she'll only ride for a year maybe 2.

    That trike would be so rad with a suspension fork...maybe some decent pedals and a Thomson stem/post too.
