Cheapskate Father/Son MTB Bike Building Project | Quickdirt
Jon Clous has been teaching his son about the ways of the world for years. Not sure if this lesson on lawn-mowing was about ingenuity or laziness? Jon, have you designed a gas-powered version of that?
Recently, I received an email from Jon Clous. We are both on the Combo Mountain Bike Race Team. He was sharing a photo of a mountain bike that he had built up from mostly used parts with his son. I loved the father/son aspect of the story and thought it was a great follow-up to my recent essay on how cycling can set a great example for your children – 3 Reasons Why Your Cycling is Good For Your Children.
Jon’s son had outgrown his old bike and I love how he teaches his son some ingenuity and creativity to solve the problem. There’s also a good reduce-reuse-recycle environmental lesson in there somewhere too, but maybe I’m reading more into it than I should.
