I don't think I've seen a kid's retrobike on here, so I thought I'd post this. It just got an overhaul and will probably end up as a daily rider for some local kid or somebody's really short girlfriend :) The frame is a size 13.5.


I'm thinking its a 95ish Specialized Stumpjumper Expert. The mix is of XT and LX parts that I had, but most of it's original. It came out really nice, if I may say so myself.

That is sweeet 8)

Mrs Bob's got a dinky little bike, she's only 4'11" and it's not easy finding these little frames without going for kiddie size 24" wheels :( unfortunately it's a modern'ish heavy lump of Trek, would like to get something like the Stumpy, you've done a lovely job on it 8)

Here's her Trek
