Have a boy not big enough for a 20" wheel bike but want him to have at least a 3 speed so he can bike up some of the hills in our parks with his brother and me.
Can't find a 16" wheel bicycle that isn't a single speed so wonder if a custom 16" wheel can be put together that uses a 3 speed hub but a local bike shop wasn't able to find spokes short enough to fit 16" wheels. Would prefer a hub that includes the coaster brake function.
Does anyone know if this can or can't be done with the 3 speed hubs from SRAM or Shimano? If so, where would I find the spokes?
Any help is very appreciated.
