    can't believe there is a market for those wheels. There used to be 24" wheel racing in this country, but it seems like it died off. I used to enjoy watching those races

    the little girl better be careful.
    that official looks like the infamous "bonnie-ator"
    she'll level a fine or relegate her for starting ahead of the line.

    that is awesome!

    how fun would it be to see that kid show up on a group ride with their parental unit?

    It's not the kid's fault - she did nothing wrong. I agree that it's pretty ridiculous, but who do you think bought the bike and the wheels and the components? The responsibility lies elsewhere. At least the kids are riding and hopefully having a good time.

    holy shit. This reminds me of a story I read a few years ago about people installing Spanish tile floors and chandeliers in their garages because they ran out of shit to blow money on in their houses. Some type A+++ dude ran out of things to spend money on for his own bike.

    The juniors out here routinely have some of the nicest bikes in a race, its a good thing as it adds to the list of reasons that they beat you, fortunately I feel better when said juniors proceed to win nats in their age group

    When was the last time you worked with some kids? She probably e-traded herself some serious stuff to get that set up. My guess her porfolio is better then some of ours!

    Your right that official does look like Bonnie. My daughter has done a few of the kiddie crits around here, but I never saw that bike.
