I'm starting a new cause: putting internal gears on kids' bikes - all of them, everywhere. Why not put a gear-hub on a kid's bike? I know: it's too expensive. I don't buy it (haha). There are so many good reasons to use internal hub-gears on kids' bikes that frankly, I'm shocked no one had done it before know. Maybe someone had, somewhere in bike-topia, but they weren't for sale around here. Now they are, I think. Perhaps. Anyway, I saw one yesterday at Clever Cycles, and it almost knocked me over, I was so excited. This is the Batavus 20" Personal Bike. In addition to the three-speed hub, it has a dynamo headlight engaged by a grip-twist remote mechanism. Um, RAD!
