    Help "Designing" a micro mini for 4 year old

    Looking for a quick good bike for my son.
    Currently looking at Brew Micro mini frame.
    Would like 18" tires and rims for starters and be able to convert to 20" at later date.
    Frame is 360.00 and I'm curious how much the rest is gonna cost to build.
    Looking for recommendations as to parts that will serve the purpose of a 4-6 year old (he's short) and keep the price within reason. If parts could be interchangable to a mini frame later that would definitely be a plus.
    All help appreciated.

    Save your money and buy a complete. I posted on your other thread too.

    Cheers to you for getting the little ones into racing.

    Yeah, I remember you too.
    I'm looking into a "complete" right now but the MICRO (around 16 top tube) is hard to come by and certainly no 18" tires. Best compromise so far is a GT in the other thread I started above. Any opions on that bike?

    Regardless of what the freestyle kids on here, say, GT has a pretty reputation when it comes to their race bikes. The spec looks ok, and it's probably priced well too. I'd compare it side by side to Redline's offering, but I'll wager that you'll end up with the GT.
