As you might expect, the bike industry is full of lifelong cyclists, especially in the smaller, upstart brands that don’t always get a lot of media. Check out Jim Decker back in 1977. He’s not just still riding, he’s busy designing a carbon fiber 29″ beach cruiser. Check out www.soulcruzers.com for more info.
People love riding with their kids, but traditional rear mounted seats and trailers have all sorts of shortcomings for city and trail riding alike. Top tube mounted seats are nothing new overseas, even if a relatively rare sight in the United States, with Mac Ride trying to bring a new version of the child bicycle seat to market. Glen Dobson was inspired by wanting to ride offroad with kids, the seat attaches to most bikes with but a headset spacer mounting bracket in place when the kiddo is taking a nap and the seat is removed. The child gets to hold onto the bars and experience the ride just like an adult, but suspended on a saddle between the adult rider and the bars. See more details at the Mac Ride Kickstarter.
