I would put this in my yard.
Save for the last couple of years, BMX bicycles have consumed my life. One thing you learn quickly about riding a little kids bike is they are pretty horrible when you actually need to commute from point A to point B.

Speaking of Jens Voigt. I am really glad to see him back in the Peloton . . . Watching stage 16 of the Tour de France last year, I was convinced I saw Jens Voigt die on his descent of the Col du Petit-Saint-Bernard. Seriously. It was harsh. He’s tough.
Speaking of bikes. Jordon Cooper posted up some nice bikes on the Outfitters blog. Here is a tip: If a bike is made out of steel in Portland, Oregon. Chances are it will look awfully nice.
