Comments about Shimano 105 RD-5701L SS Rear Derailleur:
The short-arm (SS) 105 derailleurs work nicely with 24-inch wheels on kid-sized bikes. I do a lot of riding on fine-gravel rails-to-trails routes with my family, and I had a hell of a time with sand and gravel kicked up into my kids rear derailleur. It messed up his chain too and required frequent cleaning.
I switched out to short-arm Shimano 105 rear derailleur last summer and it's made all the difference. That extra two inches of height off the trail made such a difference in keeping my kids gears clean. I go for days at a time without having to clean and relube the rear gear set.
It would probably help on my 26-inch wheels too, but for the 24s it's a total necessity.
