    I had to "make do" with a bike for crimbo..... not even a good bike.

    Oops! starting to sound like the "Four Yorkshiremen" sketch from Monty Python's Secret Policemans Ball.

    You had a bike? You were lucky. When we was kids, we had to make do wit the training wheels that the rich kids threw away!

    We had imaginations which allowed us to use cardboard boxes and think we had palaces.

    You had training wheels? How fabulous, We had 4 bricks for wheels on our cardboard race car. You ever try to push a vehicle with bricks for wheels??? It ain't purdy!

    We used to dream of having bricks. We had to make wheels out of ourselves by getting underneath each corner of our cardboard box and curling up into balls. I remember the puddles!

    CARDBOARD BOX!

    We used to have to collect spiders webs in the early morning dew, roll them up and use saliva to join them together to form a bike frame.
