Well, last week we came accross a great deal at Toys R Us - a brand new bike for a really good price-$100 off regular retail! With a little help from us, he had enough to buy a new bike!
Art and Tim headed off in the van and came home with this beauty:
26" frame, 21 speeds, disc brakes, trigger shifters, front shocks... and a partridge in a pear tree! So he is pretty happy, and waiting rather impatiently for the weather to warm up! He has taken it out a couple of times already, but it is stored in the laundry room for now, so it's a bit difficult to get at.
