    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    That was so cool. What state and city is that?

    I used to walk or ride my bike - didn't have to lock it up either. Not that way now - at least in Mobile Alabama and most other places I'd bet...

    1. I've never seen a bike with no pedals. Why not just ride a regular bike?
    2. No place for your feet?
    3. With all the impact of jumps transferred to the seat, I'd say that boy will never have children.

    No pedals. Getting to school must be downhill.

    I thought it was cool.

    I remember riding my bike to school in the 6th grade and someone broke my lock but DIDN'T steal my bike.

    He needs to raise the seat a little. A straighter leg will give him more power and control.

    Come on guys give the lack of petals and seat height a break.

    Little kids, have problems coordinating pedaling and steering on a two wheeler. So, these push bikes are sort of scooters (remember them?) with seats. One of my great-grands has one -- but she sure doesn't ride it like that.

    BTW -- dukalmighty, from what my urologist tells me, "those kinda landings" may already be buying him problems later in life -- repeated minor injury or trauma to the pelvic area can cause scar tissue induced urethral stricture.
