Further to my earlier comment, If the OP gets a 20" frame with 29" wheels, will the frame be the right size for him?
Serious question because I'm still trying to get my head around all the fuss with 29ers.
29er or any other wheel size has nothing to do with fit at least certainly not in this instance. His 20" frame is too short. Other 20" frames are longer. You could build a 26" wheeled bike with a 16" seat tube and a 30" top tube and it'd then be too long.
This thread is confirming to me that people care more about how their bike looks than how it rides.
