    [Q] reduced to the max - what are the lightest costum kid bikes out there??

    Hey Guys!

    I am serious interested in costum lightweight kid bikes. Of course weight is not everything, but as an old weight weenie it is more fun for me to build it up myself and do it light.

    What are the lightest builds out there? Money does not count here - it is just an inspiration.

    The lightest I have found yet is this one on about 5,8kg.

    I wonder why the chain stays are so long on that Kirklee. It's funny looking they are so long.
