Steve Peats Sons SuperlightThis is what you’d ride. Santa Cruz Nickel in size extra grom, with a full XTR drivetrain, and Enve wheels and cockpit. Luckiest 8 year old in the world?

When I was 8 I had a 1977 Huffy Thunder Road 56. All the neighbor kids with the Thunder Road 42 were jealous of my full banana seat.

Wonder how that Santa Cruz would handle a plywood and cinder block ramp on blacktop, because the Thunder Road rocked it. Gloves and a helmet? Just Sears Toughskin jeans – because the worst thing that could happen to a kid in the 70’s was skinned knees.

That bike is pretty lacking. The hand-me-down bike I had when I was that age had noise makers on all the spokes, shiny reflective tape, fake police siren on the handlebars, and the seat was half-chewed by a rat. That thing & I rode a groove into a loop around my house.

I mean, let’s be real. Santa Cruz is probably sitting on so many unsold nickels right now that I bet they didn’t just give Peaty this bike for free, they probably paid him to take it off their hands.

If Steve Peat was my Dad, I’d be wondering who my Dad was.

Good job, you’ve successfully spoiled the (deleted) out an 8 year old, given him zero appreciation for the value spectrum of the cycling industry, and zero ability to relate to real world anything.

@Matt: Me too! This bike doesn’t have enough Batman. Or top-tube pads made out of foam pipe insulation.
