Following Barefootini's lead on her bike, I un-lent the 12" boat anchor Thing1 first rode from our neighbour. (Used twice in 2y10m). I needed to get the headstem working again (won't last, but is good enough for the moment) and Thing2 is a LOT more confident.
Thing1's old ByK E-350 is the perfect size for Thing2. Except, being considerably larger than her runbike, she just isn't confident on it. "It's a bit freaky Daddy" is when she's being favourable. Tears before bedtime if not. She was finding excuses for not riding it. "It hurts my bottom". "My leg's sore". "It makes my legs tired" (after going 10m). But, of course 20 mins later, she was happy to ride it 17kms when attached to me.
So yeah, the old orange thing ergo is the perfect size for her. For the moment.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFWZPM8TN88
