Cool. Especially as the water flies all over your backside while you're paddling.

Impressive as hell!

I noticed the four brake levers. At first I thought, whoa, redundant cables, he must crush those things. Then it occurred to me that he has, y'know, four wheels, so, four brakes. Derp. Then I wondered how they're setup. My guess is unlike a regular bike where one hand is front and the other hand is back, I think he probably has it setup so that one hand is left and the other hand is right (brakes). This would give him some skid steer control unlike just front/back. I have seen similar single sided brake levers on a friend's sand rail I used to drive.

I can see it moving forward slowly if you pedal like crazy, but I don't see how the steering system would be effective at all. I think it only goes straight.

Griff,
The inch finally saved up enough dosh to guy the bike of his dreams, a GIANT Stance. He picked it up shortly after Christmas with his mother. When he picked it up the guys at the shop told him that he could never ride it in th ewinter because the salt would destroy it.

Back in my pre-auto, bike only days I rode all winter in Burlington, VT an would rinse my bike off with hot water after each ride, then wipe it dry and lube as needed.

Is there something special about today's bikes that precludes a post salt ride rinse? I'm wondering about the disk brakes, their mechanism seems crevice-y.

What are your thoughts?

Sorry I missed your post foot. Wow, the Trance is a nice ride. He has good taste.

I'd guess it's the crevice issue. Our old bikes were pretty clean in comparison. My buddy who is wicked fastidious only uses compressed air to clean his full suspension. That wouldn't be sufficient to remove salt. I'd hate him to get salt embedded in his pivots or brake mech. Any chance he'd ride a pos bike on the salty pavement and save the Trance for trail riding? He is your kid though so maybe he'd carefully rinse and dry the bike...

But if the boy doesn't beat it up, I'll never get handed down to 3foot.

He says it might be tedious to clean the bike so he will use his POS schwinn until the salt is gone.

He's already handed down his Magic Marys since the new bike came with Ardents.
