This summer, for his 3rd birthday my son got his first bike. I was pretty sure, after watching me on my trainer all last winter, that he was going to want a "trainer" of his own. Late this summer, I told him that we could build him a "trainer" like daddy's. He's been after me ever since. So with cold weather upon us, I told him earlier this week that we could build his "trainer" on thursday. Of course, after building it, we had to try it out...

...and here we are, goin' hard...Asiago

Is this a magnetic or fluid trainer? ;>)

My son turns 3 in January.... I'll have to try this! Thanks for the idea. I'm sure your partner will be in top form for the early spring races!

I'd consider it borderline abuse subjecting the poor guy to trainer workouts. Oh the horror :)

My son is 2 1/2 now and is in the copy cat stage. He wants to do everthing that dad does. He follows me around the house into the garage, helps me work on bikes etc...
Last fall he he would try to do cyclocross dismounts on his plastic tricycle after watching me do cross races.

I can just see him wanting a to ride a trainer beside me. Of course, I moved from Wisconsin to Oregon 5 years ago, so I ride outside all winter long. I can't stomach the trainer.

My son has that exact same bike with a Gary Fisher paint job.

Gives new meaning to the term "training wheels" doesn't it.

Cool Thread......thanks for posting.
