Bug and I went to Bicycle Sport Shop to buy some new socks on Saturday. We can home with his first bike. It is probably a few months too early, but who cares. The people at the shop said age 2 is usually the earliest they recommend. He will be 2 in a few months. He can't really pedal, but can coast and slam on the brakes like a champ. He had a crash while trying to mount it once. It was very traumatic. Lots of tears and a big bottom lip.
