    There are some planet bike ones with separate front & back in different sizes. Whether for that reason or because they say "recumbent" on them, they're fairly expensive for a kid's bike. You're also not guaranteed to find both a 20" front and a 20" rear in stock (larger rear wheels are common, and a lot of places stock only some combinations). There are others which seem to be custom for particular kinds of recumbents, and it doesn't look like they'd fit a normal diamond frame. I ended up with some SKS bluemels which are presumably intended for regular bikes (they come in pairs in 20, 24, 26, and 28 inch sizes, in various widths). But those don't seem to very available outside of europe...

    Why not just rename it to "Oh, no"? Then we'll get the option to Un-Oh-No posts that we've oh-no'ed

    Okay, okay...last one. Went to see the orthopedist today. He didn't like the angle of the x-ray the hospital took. It showed a thin, almost hairline, fracture in my clavicle. So he took another x-ray. New image shows butterfly fracture and significant displacement (3cm).

    Surgery next week. No bike for 3 months. F Me.

    Definitely warrants an "Oh-No". So sorry. Hope it all heals up quickly.

    Sucks! Been there!! Behave! You will live with how your bone heals for the rest of your life - take time to heal it well.

    I smashed mine flipping over handlebars on a beach in San Fran. Landed on that wet sand right at the edge where the waves barely reach. You know, the sand that is as firm as concrete.

    Hang on.
    3 months sounds a bit extreme.
    My collarbone surgery involved putting things back together with a roughly 5" bolt down the middle and sutures wrapped around the broken area to hold some of the stray bits close. I was commuting and carrying a backpack within a month or so, no worries.
    Good luck.

    You're not a real cyclist til you've busted a collarbone.
