Pix of your R20

Hi folks...

I would like to add to my collection of R20 pix to add to my R20 related website that I will be letting everyone know about shortly.

I have quite a few now, but, I would still like to add tothe collection.

If you would like to send several pix of your R20 to me to add to my collection, please send them to me here and I will add them.

My intention is to have a collection of various R20's (original or rebuilt) for others so see when they visit my website.

Thanks in advance for whatever you may send me.

I would, however, at the moment, there are portions of info on the site that require completing, and I won't be able to do so until my R20 version is complete.

I am still waiting for it to come back from the powder coaters, then the final assembly will be done.

Once I have the bike complete, I will be taking pix of it, and adding same to the site.

In the meantime, I would like to collect as many pix of others R20's to add to the site.

Once I feel that the site is ready, I will announce it here on Bike Forums.

Thanks lots.

'72 superbe, have you talked about your bike on this forum yet? I have an R20 that I will be upgrading and I am curious about your steering post/stem solution. It isn't completely clear from the photo, but is it drilled? What steps did you take to replace the original setup?

Thanks for the compliment littlePixel! I put up a page about my Twenty build: http://home.earthlink.net/~bhansmn/index.html
The fork is a Sun Recumbent fork which is almost a dead match on steerer tube length as the stock Twenty. It is 1" threaded. I cut a slot in the steerer to to match that of the original steerer tubes slot. I did this with a Dremel tool. The stem I got is a custom stem from Bikesmith Designs http://www.bikesmithdesign.com/
Bikesmith is a wonderful resource and a wealth of knowledge. I have a threaded Tange headset but still use the original clamp setup for stem height adjustment. Hope this helps answer your questions sahadev. Here is a photo of the headset/ stem and the other photo is how the bike looks Today.

Wow that's interesting. Thats given me a solution for some much needed extra reach, obvious when one sees it, but I would probably have never thought about it. Cheers.

Great 20! I've started on mine that I got off ebay a few weeks ago. Had a question about your tires. Where did you get your white wall Maxxis hookworms? All I can seem to find is black walls.

iPAQsRock- I bought the white wall Maxxis off of Nashbar last winter. I did not know they were white walls until they arrived. There was no picture of the tires just a description and a $7.95 per tire cost. They forgot to mention the white wall part. I would not have ordered them if I knew they were white walls and the bike would be a different color than it is. I figured with white walls the bike would look best black.
