The simple answer - it needs to fit. They'll be comfortable from the first pedal stroke.

Although you don't mention the age, my philosophy is to never make a child carry more than required to replace an inner tube.

I recall some great trail trips with a couple young sons and a BOB trailer.

He is 7 y.o. He is not experienced in several day's trips so we are concerned. Your advice seems to be right, we should try the bike before buying

Hello members!
I am going to visit my sister and her kid in 2 weeks and she asked me to help with the choice of special mountain bike. We want to have 2-3 day riding. Honestly, I do not know how to choose bike for a kid! I have a Fuji Declaration, and it would be easier to have the small version of it :) He grows so fast, and it is important to remember about it. I found this Diamondback Bicycle for mountains, but is it a good idea to choose bike without trying it in the store? I think that kids should see the bike and try to ride it dor several minutes before choosing. So what would you say? What is the right way of choosing kid's bike?
Thank you in advance!

Agree with the others about using press, that is the easiest way of making coffee for me. Also, if you like creamer, I found this one - this is powder (keeps long) and have a convinient package so it does not take up a lot of space.

For boiling water I use a little stove which is also light-weight.

Enjoy your coffee!

Agree with the others about balanced diet, proteins and high-quality carbs. Also do not forget to stay hydrated during trainings and in ordinary life. It would be great to visit a doctor to have your personal plan of meals

ACA Mobile Route Apps / Re: Base maps are "ghosted."
« on: May 17, 2022, 12:11:36 am »
Hi Mark, there are 2 scenarios where you cannot change the base map, so they appear "ghosted" or disabled. First is when you're navigating. You know you're in navigation mode when the bottom of the screen shows speed, distance and a stop button, and the map moves when you ride.  Second is when you're viewing a map offline. In this mode, we assume that you don't have network access so cannot change the base map to use google. Hope this helps.

Didn't know about scenario about viewing map offline, need to remember. Thank you!
