comment Aerodynamic kid's trailer with suspension
Wouldn't an 8-10 year old be able to ride quite well already? I have seen kids at maybe 13 doing crazy jumps that I can only dream of doing after years!

If they don’t fit, buy a new helmet.

comment Techniques for safely leaving a bike for 1-2 minutes in a safe-ish place
@CareyGregory, why don't them inconspicuously ride the bikes away? Using a van exposes the registration plate, which can easily be remembered or recorded by a camera (in contrast to "a guy in grey hoody took my bike"). Furthermore, if the van strategy is utilized, I would guess they target busy bike racks, not single bikes, left in front of a shop.

comment MTB Why are 29ers considered better then the legacy 26'' or 27'' tires?
I haven't ridden such. The thread that I linked to IMHO concludes that they are just a fashion thing. The guys at the LBS are rather enthusiastic towards them. This movie also leans towards 29ers, though it compares a lower end full-suspension to a higher end 29er.

Other than that, the bike looks like an average entry level cross-country bike, that can serve you well in the city, tours and not too rough downhills.

comment Planting a foot when cornering: when and how?
Also, I do this only in the city (for now), where the knobby tires have terrible grip on the wet pavement.

comment Planting a foot when cornering: when and how?
@arne, it's actually a little more than walking speed, so not enough to cause erosion. But if I don't stick a foot out, I need to effectively stop and then take the turn very very slowly.

comment Using a much heavier rear tyre than in the front
Just to mention, the DH tire you guys kind of advised me towards (Continental Der Kaiser), is magical. IMHO , @cherouvim, you don't have to worry about the weight mismatch, because very soon you will be putting a heavy tire in the front also!
