Awesome, thats a very cool and quirky survivor!

Reminds me in a way of a tiny Ti Merlin a lady had at a race I went to as a junior, I still remember it as small bikes were rare and it was maybe 13" with a tiny welded ti stem (perhaps 50mm) and full M900.

It`s difficult to find the right cranks for short legs...

All the suntour types are 170-180mm, that`s too long!

We need a compromise!

Let`s try sugino cranks in 155mm...

Only one question... what is her age?
I'm thinking to do the same for my 9 years old daughter, but I think that maybe 26" are too big for her yet
