matt got maiko this bike for his birthday last summer and he worked with him on and off for the rest of the summer trying to teach him to ride it. then as the weather began to turn a bit warmer and we got those sweet midwinter heat spells... well... he took to riding it again and, goodness, it came easily this time! and just like that he's all over the place. i imagine that he will be conquering many things like this... just look how he's grown. last summer that bike seemed so big and now, not even a year later, he fits it perfectly.
