I'm totally diggin' on that waterbottle mount! That's a cool bike for a little guy! And just wait, pretty soon he's gonna be too fast and too cool to ride with you or old guys like me too.

I bet you are a happy dad. Congrats.

Had to have the water bottle cage, though he was a bit bummed that it didn't fit on the downtube like daddy's! He's got the gloves too! :) His jersey is reserved for race day!

I got my nephew gloves for his fourth birthday. At first, he didn't know what to do with them. Then he wouldn't take them off! ("need my gloves to eat hot dogs...")

Then my sis had to get my niece gloves to match her Barbie bike...
Aero downtube!! cool nmafrican

I see he is wearing the shirt. Is that his first spec house he is building in the back ground? Maybe store his new ride and future rides?
Is that Shimano or Campy? NMSpiderman

... it was such a short time ago. Last month he enlisted in the Marines. Time goes by much too fast. Enjoy your little one. Be his Dad and his best buddy!
Looks like a mighty proud rider.dzrider

He looks mighty proud. Like others have said, they grow up real fast so enjoy the time you have. I can remember those times, now my son's going to be married in Hawaii and my daughters traveling in Australia and I miss them both. However, I can still kick both their butts on a bike! BTW, the summer here in Wisconsin has been downright great this year, don't you think?
Love the water bottle & gloves! Fantastic! (nm)CHRoadie

That's a great pic (and a great smile!). For future reference- I heard of a way for kids to learn to ride really quickly (probably when he's big enough for a 16" bike) on this site and it worked great with my kids. Drop the seat so they can have their feet on the ground, lose the pedals, and forget about training wheels. In a few days when they're comfortable coasting and turning, put on the pedals, and the next generation is off and running! My 4 year old is doing great (did this 3 weeks ago). Cracks me up to see him tooling around. And no training wheels to "unlearn"! Have fun.
