This could possibly be the raddest ride ever for a super grom! Developed as a prototype by Australia-based Tramontane Cycles, the full suspension Mini-Frenzie was created for two reasons. First, Greg Geldard, the company's owner, wanted something awesome for his three-year-old son. Second, he thinks there is a need for a high-quality 16 to 20-inch mountain bike. Aside from the Lil' Shredder models that Jackson Goldstone and Finn Finestone use, we haven't seen many on the market.

The Mini-Frenzie utilizes the same DISA (Derailleur Inside Swing Arm) system used by its 26-inch big brother, less one cog, giving it a total of five speeds. DISA is fully sealed and user serviceable. Perhaps even more interesting is that you can use any 6-bolt 20mm front wheel as the rear wheel, and a freewheel concentric with the pivot allows shifting while coasting. Tiny 110mm length cranks (and tiny legs) make those wheels spin.

Suspension wise, the Mini Frenzie gets 3-inches of travel. Just like Tramontane's 26-inch model, the rear end does not use a linkage actuated rear shock. Price and specifications have yet to be set, but expect it to be around $3100 USD ($3000 AUD).

Tramontane Cycles has also been developing a gearbox downhill bike for the past four years. A limited production of the model shown below is set to hit the trails in 2013. Looks sleek!
