Oh no, were you that "somebody"? A lesson learned, little girl!
That is so nice of you!Nope, wasn't me. She got off her bike and laid it down off the road to pat my other neighbors dog. Some idiot came by and ran over the wheel and kept going. Her mother doesn't have a bunch of free cash so I figured I'd help a bit. Found a new bike at WM for $75 so I might go that route if I can't come up with a wheel and tire. She's nine and will soon outgrow it but she is a real good kid.
What about a 24" ... I see where Walmart has Huffy 24" girl's bikes in girly color combinations...
I don't have any bike inventory left over from this past Christmas to help but did you ask the folk at walmart if they would sell you a rim and tire?
Ask for the manager of the Auto shop....he is in charge of the bikes there...Sometimes they have parts from damaged merchandise
Also what about PC bike.....they may have a used one laying around
It is really great you want to help....
I checked the Bicycle Doctor, PC Bike, no joy at either. Buying the tire, wheel and tube I'm around half way to a complete bike. So, later this week I'll catch up with her and her mom and we will pick one up that she fits.
She is a pretty cool kid. She is one of the few people our German Shepherd let's walk into the house without checking them out or stopping them. The dog is in love with her, she walks the dog, gives it simple commands and the dog obeys. Funny watching them. On one end of the leash is a 9 year old girl that weighs about 50 pounds skipping along, on the other end is a 95+ pound dog walking right next to her watching every move she makes. I think we have a dog whisperer in the making.
That's where I'm at with it. Seems a kids 20" is one thing and a adult 20" is another. It will get sorted out this week end.
Here is a good article on sizing
and a chart
