Wow, very interesting pitch. Isn't it hard to find quality kids bikes, of the non-bso variety?

comment Locking your bike in public areas
If you want to use something less messy than grease/vaseline you can use candle wax. You can get it out by melting the wax with a lighter or with a toothpick.

comment Why aren't Tour de France riders going any faster?
@tdc - It may be true that things like weather may average out over the course of 3 weeks and it could be expected that over a period of decades these may be similar. I don't think that things like this would necessarily apply for things like to things like course length, change in elevation, etc.

comment need cycling eyewear, but fogging is a big problem
If you are finding ski goggles too bulky get some downhill mountain bike goggles. They work great when you are wearing a helmet and they are much easier to find in clear than ski goggles. They also help to keep your face a bit warmer.

comment Is it better to have mountain bike tyres for the winter?
The key to not carrying snow is not having your lugs too closely packed. You want lots of space between them.
