Now that is a great ride. Enjoy!
A much much younger me owned a Colnago with Merckx decals, purchased from an Italian commercial pilot who bought it from a pro recouping a few Lire at the end of a season. Had a few small dings a quite a few paint defects from a year of pro racing. Stupid young me stripped the paint and repainted. Stripping the paint exposed the perfection of the brass braising and the exquisite lugs, but in hindsight, Oh the folly of youth!

Looking back at this thread a couple of years later, I wonder if there are any updates? From me, the grandson is now 7 and has a bike sans training wheels. The granddaughter is 3 and fearless. She zooms on the scooter and flies on the strider.
LSD, how much joy does the grandbaby bring?
OC, have your kids figured out that you actually know anything?

Smokey - kids are 19 and 19, out of the house. Studying overseas so to speak, in Victoria across the Salish Sea. Very much cycling distance but it does take 2x2hrs by ferry so makes for a long day. One's passion now is rock climbing (trip to Nevada coming up), the other hmm I guess she likes her drinks, much like I did at that age.
