pimp my (kid’s) ride…
Why wasn’t my Dad into mountain biking? Compare a rugby ball and some advice in a broad Aussie accent about not trying hard enough unless your nose was bleeding to this: 20″ wheels on a custom singlespeed conversion of an Islabikes Beinn. A proper bomber of a bike that’ll do bikepaths too.
Happy 5th birthday to Addie! He was well pleased with it, insisting on an inaugural ride even though it’s still a bit icy outside.
Dad was pretty happy about having whipped the gears off too since the young ‘un keeps forgetting to look where he’s going often enough as it is! It also gave me the chance to fit a pimp half link chain and a Gusset bachelor chain device to a kid’s bike. What isn’t good about that?! Not that the jammy wee dodger even noticed. Probably thinks the moon is made out of cheese too!
