Cool bike and it looks like he loves it!

If your interested there is a site where you can get modified MTB cranks in shorter lengths for kids:

http://bikesmithdesign.com/Short_Cranks/isoflow.html

Maybe run a 32t 22t double ring setup with chain guard on the outside.

Also looks like he needs a shorter stem.

Lucky lad! :)


thanks, the cranck is to long, but I had it, I'm looking for a 170 or 165 mm
and a shorter stem :wink:

These tiny Hahannas are great and build into a real nice bike for the kids.

Looks like you got a later frame than ours with the stops for V's already on it. Did you also get a 1 1/8" head tube? I was lucky to find the Bombers with a 1" steerer but they were like rocking horse poo.
We were out with ours on Friday afternoon and went to an area with some yumps and my lads was all over it like a rash, going down the rooty hills he was loving too, so much more confidence than with his 20" wheeled bike. He just needs to learn to climb now.
Hope your boy is as happy with his.

Carl.
