Another thread gave me the idea. Who among us (sorry to those who don't have kids, but I guess nieces/nephews, god-children etc will be perfectly acceptable!) has got the coolest bike for their kids.

I'll start with my modest Specialized Hotrock (£75 second hand from LBS) for my 6 year old daughter . If this is O/T please move thread :D

It's got to be Doug Bradbury...

Remember the half-scale Manitou FS he made for his son?

Everything scaled perfectly, and reputed to have cost him 20 grand to make...!

Sorry, no kids (why am I apologising...?!) so I shall submit someone else's - hey what wrong with getting other people to do the work?!

Kris Le Rouge's tiny Yeti for his daughter will take the honors.

Although i've got no pictures of it, but Eastons Check Texera's (correct spelling?) boy had the coolest bikes ever, well you would when "uncle" Doug Bradbury welds up a 1/2 size Manitou full susser for you for christmas :D :D

I dread to think what the cost would have been.
