    Custom bicycle for a very small kid ?

    Had a great 4 hour group ride today. 16 roadbikes on 3. of december here in Oslo, Norway !
    Anyway, one of the girls mentioned some friends who had a child of 6 or 7 who will stay very small. The parents are looking for a bicycle for this boy. Does anyone know of a builder who can make a tiny bicycle for this kid. Preferably in England but the US is probably also OK. Money did not seem to be all that important.

    Islabikes are not custome but are proper bikes for children.

    If you really want a good custom builder, then Chas Robers is one of the best and has made some really good small bikes.

    antbikemike would do it i'd think. problem could be wait time and the fact that you'd have to have it shipped from the usa.

    Check out Mercian in the UK. They are a reasonably priced custom builder.

    Thank you all, the PM was very useful.
    Finally someone has made some sensible bikes for kids. Those Islabikes look great. My kids are (nearly) grownups but maybe someday I can make some grandchildren happy!
