There are adult big wheels!
Maybe I’m late to the party on this one, but holy effing crap there are adult big wheels!
I was taking my kids to the playground last Wednesday when my son decided he wanted to ride his big wheel rather than his bike. I went along with it though I fully expected to be carrying the big wheel after he got tired of peddling uphill.
He never tired. His little legs churned and churned and he got the ultimate payback on the ride home. All those efforts to make it uphill to the playground were rewarded with a downhill drift on the way home that nearly blew his five year old mind. At one point he lifted his feet off the peddles, kicked them out to the side, and screamed:
"Oh yeah! That’s what I’m talking about!"
Hell yes buddy. This is the same kid who used to be scared to ride his bike w/training wheels down a slight incline. Suddenly he’s an adrenaline junkie?
I must admit his trip downhill looked like a load of fun. It brought back great memories of countless hours spent big wheeling around my neighborhood as a kid. I can proudly say that I wore out more than a few tires and hand brakes spinning out at the bottom of a hill. There aren’t many things in the world that are more fun than riding a big wheel.
After observing my son’s exploits I thought, “They should totally make big wheels for adults”. Like most of my great ideas someone had beaten me to the punch. Now for a mere $259.99 I can relive the glory of my youth, only now I can blow off my homework and blatantly feed brussel sprouts to the dog.
