It took everything for me not to break down crying right there. This is the first time he's ever been able to pedal a bike (he couldn't even pedal a trike). For any low-tone or CP kids, I highly recommend looking in to a fixed gear system.



Modifications:
Expanded seat, fat wheels training support, fixed gear and new cog set (keeps the pedals moving if the bike is moving), new tire and chain set (to work with the fixed system), mountain bike pedals with adjustable toe cradles, and we're going this week to add the heal straps. In the picture, you can see his foot sliding out of the toe support - the heal strap with shore that up, but it's on order right now. He also got a new helmet and elbow/knee pads (Spongebob ).
