    BMX+derailleur.

    Hi,
    I wanna use a Mantis frame or a Redline Micro for my kid's new bike. It will be an all around bike, but I use BMX frames because of the size. I want to istall a rear derailleir and cog. Is it possible in a 110 mm spaced dropouts? Maybe a three gears old cassette?

    Concerns, please.

    cable routing might be a concern. you'll need to zip tie, and/or find some old school clamp on cable guides, as bmx frames don't have them for derailleurs.
