Whats the smallest rim diameter that a person can run with stock 20" brake system? I've been considering a smaller rim. There seems to be more of a selection to pick from.

Note if you are using drop spindles you will have to grind the lower ball joint stud flat with the retaining nut to mount the 17's.
