We bought a bike for an inner-city kid this year, donated it to his family, and that reminded me of the bikes I’ve gotten for Christmas. How bout you? My first was a Sears 3-speed that I rode like Evel Knievel. It was remarkably just like this bike, I spotted in the Summer of 07.
I rode that bike everywhere; later, I had a cruiser, BMX, MTB (Gary Fisher and Specialized S-Works) and then an Epic Allez that converted me into a roadie. I hope more kids get bikes this year and ride them.
