its pretty much the same geometry as yours, but if you put the 2 side by side, you'll notice that my brake mounts are further up the frame. its definately not a 24" though

havent had a reply off em yet lol was just going of pics i could find,never knew about your site nice one for that.
But if you look at both 20inch model the brake boss on both is in a different place to yours

Iam really really interested in this bike and iam doing alot of running about trying tofind out how im gonna fit a brake to it. You seem to have abit of a problem with me doing this, do you not want me to buy the bike

I've got some new rims and spokes for one of these :wink:
As you have probably already discovered they are a race specific diametre about halfway between 20" and 24".
ALANSBMX seems to be the best/cheapest source for bits.

Then why does the info OP posted state they came with 20inch tyres? Surely a 20 inch tyre wouldnt fit
