    Hi everyone. I picked up a KK glide deluxe earlier this year. After reading all the specs I expected it to have 26" wheels, but mine came with 24" wheels and the frame is tiny. I've turned it into a low rider style bike with ape hangers because it was too small to ride as it came (previous owner turned it into a cafe racer style bike)

    I can't find any information or matching pictures on Google to a glide deluxe the same as mine.

    Has anyone else had one if these in this size?

    Check out the "SHOW US YOUR DYNO'S" thread. I know there are at least a couple 24's pictured in there. You can't go wrong with the apes on a 24" bike either... Nice bike.

    Your bike is a combo of a glide delux and a Bratz Lowrider bike. I don’t think the chain guard is correct either. Dynos are known for the D at the back of the top tube, bar that extends past the seat post. Does yours have a ‘D’. If so, only the frame is a glide delux.

    You banana seat, wheels, tires, handle bar, and possibly the crank set are all off the Bratz Bike.

    Still a fun ride!

    @Kreuz she stated its a KK not a Dyno in the title(so chainguard is correct too). And Brats bikes were 20" wheels I believe. Hers are 24". She added the apes.

    My Flightliner takes 24 inch wheels so I added banana seat and apes like yours. I also had to add a layback seatpost before I could pedal comfortably.

    I stand corrected. Didn’t read her post correctly. They did make smaller youth bikes. Can’t say I have ever run across one. Tread pattern and seat is very similar to the before mentioned purple lowrider style bike. Wheels look accurate and probably original. Its a good use of a smaller frame.

    Still a fun low cruiser. I would have took home as well.

    Yes, this one is rare! Came with some plastic fenders if i recall right, looking like Deuce but named Glide. Nice score!

    To recognize the 24" frame in pictures, the head tube area may be key.
    Notice the little to no gap between the top and down tubes there.
