So I bought this online thinking the frame was 20" -- planned on building it into a fat-as-possible cargo bike thing for me and my dog. Well, nope -- the frame is for 20" tires. :mad:. So I'm at a loss. What would y'all do with this?

@horsefarmer @hamppea Sorry, I should have included that: This is, from what I can tell, a children's size Ross Hi-Tech Mt. Hood from 1985. Here's an advertisement from Ross' site:


After I received the frame and very dejectedly began measuring, I started Googling for any information on it, and could only find info on this model with stock 26" x 2.125" tires -- which is why I bought it, mistakenly, in the first place.

What is the top tube length measured center of the head and seat tubes, and does it feel kind of heavy?

Thanks
