we heart bikes

with all this crazy racing going on....aaron and i quickly realized it was time for us to upgrade the kids' bikes.   this is no small feat....there are sizes and types to research...and there are financial considerations to make.  do we just get them mountain bikes and let them race 'cross on those?  or do we get them two bikes....one immediately to race 'cross on, one later to ride mountain bike trails?
we agonized for weeks, finally got ready to pull the trigger (with true getting a new bike and luca getting his hand me down), when a better opportunity presented itself.  a good friend really hooked us up and both of our kids ended up with new bikes.  it was astounding, unexpected, and really appreciated.  luca was so overwhelmed with emotion-  his own, brand new cyclocross bike!  he declared Oct 10, 2014 as the "absolute best day of my life so far".  he said that more than once!!!!!
checking to see if the bike is light enough

good friend dave pearson,checking the bikes and switching to some higher grade parts

luca, on the absolute best day of his life so far
