They must know someone that refurbishes bikes. There is always a ton of bikes out there.
I knew Isaak's bike was getting much too small for him. I yelled to Travis, "Hey can you take Isaak across the street to look at bikes. His is too small. He needs to go up a size." Travis was annoyed. He looked out the window and said, "I only see pink bikes." I said, "Whatever! It will take you 5 minutes tops." He ended up taking Isaak across the street to look. Travis knows much more about bikes than I do. I was in the process of making breakfast.
Travis came back with a gold and white $20 bike. Isaak's favorite color is gold, so it was perfect.
I do wish our kids could ride bikes better. We don't have sidewalks, so whenever they ride we have to make an effort to go to a park, or school. It's not like when I was younger, and we rode bikes around the neighborhood. When my parents were little they rode bikes around the whole town. We watch our kids to make sure nothing happens to them. It's just a different world we live in today.
Isaak's still wobbly, and has to ride on a trail. Mica's refuses to try and ride standing up to get more power.
Do you like riding bikes?
