More Information
Three years ago I got my daughter a secondhand bike for Christmas. Her great grandpa helped me clean it up and get it ready. She loved it but struggles with severe anxiety and so it took her a long time to learn to ride. She's 12 now. She finally got up on it this August (one of the best moments of my life!) and fell in love with riding...just in time to outgrow her bike! I've raised the seat to the max and her knees still stick out and she can't fully extend her legs. She would also feel more comfortable with handbrakes than backward pedaling like she does now. She loves mint green. Her dad and I work 6 jobs between us but we struggle under a mortgage-sized student loan for a degree that didn't pan out and money is tight. I have almost $150 saved up from my third job and grandparent gifts for her birthday. Looks like I'd need $250 to get the one I think she'd love that's the most doable for us financially (sixthreezero 26" 7-speed Around the Block Women's beach cruiser in mint green and black on Amazon). So many others have so much more dire needs--I feel strange asking. But thinking of my daughter's face on Christmas morning got me on here just to...see. Thank you! Bless you, Together Rising & this amazing community!
