a new bike  

posted by Michael Piwonka 10:07 PM
Mason turned nine last Thursday. He got a new bike for his birthday, one that is made for doing tricks. It's a little big for him right now, but it should last him a long time.

It's actually a very simple bike, with no gears, and only rear brakes. The most interesting part of the bike is the mechanism that allows the front wheel to be spun around without tangling the brake cable.

Mason and I had fun riding around the neighborhood, but the lack of gears really made climbing hills difficult. I'm sure Mason will learn how to do some tricks on his new bike, but he will probably spend most of his time on relatively flat roads.

random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
