Road bikes with 24 inch rims are hard to find. The problem is, finding someone who is into cycling and wants one for their child. If you can get $100 for an old 10 speed, I would take the money and recycle it into a proper sized bike. I tried riding a 49 cm Ross with my 5' 9", 30" inseam frame. It did not work very well, and that bike is a lot larger than a bike with 24" rims. Why not try adding a few bucks to whatever you sell the Nishiki for and buy a used bike off Craigslist.
