The child should also be wearing safety glasses conforming to BS-EN 166. Also safety shoes should be supplied- bare feet in a work area?

Cute pic, please tell me they were on the way to removing the pie plate behind the cassette.

oh my gosh that’s a great pic. a little 3-way allen wrench styled pacifier would be adorable! Kickstarter, here I come!

+1 on the pie plate. You have to instill these habits early, or they’ll become freds. Just to be safe, you may want to start reciting Velominati’s “The Rules” to her before bedtime. Friggin’ adorable picture.

Props to your wife for rocking the straight block.

YES!! I don’t have kids and I want one. I don’t even like those three way tools, and I STILL want one.

I think those “safety glasses” are just prescription lenses.

Pie Plate is gone, and those are my regular glasses! Mom’s bike is all rebuilt and ready to go.

Favorite Pic of the Day. Being a father myself I wish I had my little ones in the shop with me as they grew up.

Smell all that rubber, citrus degreaser, oil, and metal.
