Looking for a bicycle 20" front wheel and tire. Kid next door left her bike where she shouldn't have and somebody drove over the wheel.

Oh no, were you that "somebody"? :medium-smiley-033: A lesson learned, little girl!

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.

I gotta grab her after school and sort of see what she fits on. Had her on a 24 and she couldn't toe touch. Difference between the bikes, may say 24, but that's only the wheel size not the frame size. I'm learning more I about these things than I need.

Poor kid, that sucks. I can never understand how some one can do something like that and just keep going. I hope they get a flat.

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....:whoo:

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.

I don't know about all dogs but German Shepherds are. When one of my sister in laws show up the dog will bark a few times then we both leave the room.

This is so good of you to help out like this... Cool kids deserve a break

BTW for a 9 year old the 20" is most likely the right size

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.
