The problem is not the wheel size but the frame size. If the child can't comfortably straddle the top tube, the bike the too large. Maybe that's what you are saying in some coded way. Another point is I'm not spending $400.00 on a bike he'll outgrow in a year. That's why CL or other used sources are best at this age unless money is not an issue.
