Many of you have seen the 20" road bike I built up for my son. For a while it seemed the maker, Piedrahita, had stopped making the frames available. Well, he's back on Ebay with a couple of the framesets for sale. One is an aluminum frame in the same "stars'n'stripes" motif I built up for my son. The other is a "classic" design that I actually like a lot. That one includes internal (brake) cable routing and lugged Columbus SL construction. I've been impressed with the one I built for my son and he absolutely loves it.

Here is the link. http://shop.ebay.com/jhair2004/m.html?_ ... ksid=p4340

If the moderators decide to remove the link, just drop me a PM and I'll send it to you.

Here is my son riding his...

Awesome, never seen one that small. Must've been difficult to find 20" road wheels?

Here's my 10 year old brother doing a time trial on his little bike. He loves it.

Decent 20" road wheels aren't terribly hard to find, you just have to look at shops that sell recumbents! 20" is a quite common wheel size for recumbents. Not a huge selection, but it'll do!

451mm BMX mini rims are pretty easy to find... 20x1 1/8 is standard. A Lot of companies make tires that are slick or have minimal tread... definitely road worthy. The rims are usually about 18-19mm wide. Pair those up with a decent set of hubs and you have a nice wheelset.

Ted, I was going to forward that link to a friend who is looking for a road bike for his daughter, but I just checked and it is already gone. I guess his production line is rather short!

Yeah, it looks like both framesets he had for sale are gone. Sorry.

Tough to find, but occasionally available on eBay. I learned about Culprit Bicycles today. They make a 20" road bike too. http://www.bikerumor.com/2012/08/18/cul ... more-47653
