    Slapped my Calvin on the bike last night. And for not quite a year old and not really walking, he was rocking it. For about 2 feet.

That was last year, and he couldn't really get farther than a block or two down the sidewalk. Been back out since spring and he's usually on it 2-4x / week, can now make full loops of our neighborhood and get himself up and down hills. Not much for offloading since they have to be walked, but he loves to drive on the lawn with it and "crash" every once in a while. He's starting to really pick up speed and play with holding his feet up, balancing and leaning a bit. He's turning 3 in July for reference.

    Huge success and he loves it, will be interesting to see how he progresses to pedals and/or a throttle. They now have e-Bike strider-bikes with throttles in the UK. Pretty dope.

    On a sad side note, sold my Xtrainer... haven't had a lick of time to ride it.... buuut I do see some electric Trials bikes in our future. Plenty of places around town we could ride in and not bother anyone w/o the noise.... I really dig the Electric Motion (EM) bikes, and hear good things about the Ossa's. The new Cake seems to be a blur between MTB, dirtbike, and trials. Really curious how that thing rides being only 150 lbs! Oh and here's the kicker for those of us stuck in the city... they've got a street legal one now.

    Are you saying you'd ride the Kalk if opportunity presented itself?
