Breadwinner Owner’s Channel 003: Oscar’s Custom 20″er

Words by Tony Pereira

My son Oscar started riding a balance bike when he was 18 months old. He took to it quickly and got on a pedal bike when he was 3. We’ve spent lots of time at our local indoor bike park, The Lumberyard, where he has learned so many skills. This is Oscar’s third summer on a pedal bike. Almost 6 now, he outgrew his old 16″ wheeled bike over the winter and was also ready for handbrakes so we could do some trail riding this year. His new bike is  a 20″ with a suspension-corrected rigid fork, 140mm cranks (cut and tapped Shimano Deore). When he needs it I’ll swap in a suspension fork. I’m hoping he’ll get 3 years out of it.
