Jay knows a lot about bikes, because he built his own as a kid, by scavenging parts from old bikes his mom would bring home from garage sales. He decided to teach Collin to build his own. They started by buying an old junky bike off Craigslist that had a decent frame.
They stripped, sanded, sanded, sanded, sanded, primed, painted, painted and painted.....
.... assembled, fixed, replaced, etc.
It turned out quite nice. All the neighbor boys are quite impressed, and Collin is very pleased with the result.
Jay is an awesome dad. He can fix anything, and he loves to teach our boys how to "do stuff."
