    Hey I hear ya... I don't have such a great parental past...* I got some... and have rode many many types of bikes...*

    I welcome any types of bikes at my house.*

    You and yours are welcome to use the lift as well... unless old chests are still the preferred meathod of raising the bike to work on a bike.
