I`d like to know more about the weight of the famous R 20. Reason is I managed to pull out an old folder that my mother owned at the time of her death. Do not know where she got it, but after reading alot (and looking alot) about the R 20 I wanted what the other children had. Realised that old bike is much the same system. Small difference in the hinge on mine, it is 90* on the tube. Pix is still on my sons mobile, I`ll post soon.
Rode it the other day, decided I like it alot, but work to do ofcourse. Bothe rims has been damaged, so it was quite "wobbely" to ride. Steel rims, cracked tires, missing front brake, "loose" feel both in bottombracket and hubs and so on. No alu, all steel. Could not fold it on the test day (it is ok now) but it could still fit in the back seat of my Toyota Starlet. A search on the net made me realise it is produced in Poland!
Decided to weigh it before stripping, it is 15 kg`s. Not finished yet so I do not know the frames weight.
Could somebody plse tell me the weight of the original R 20, and also frame`s weight + and - fork? Also present weight is interesting, after modifying that is. Just like to know to compare.
Struggeling with the crank, think it has not been adjusted in a long time, so it is stuck at he moment. Thinking about pulling the angle grinder out today, but it is snowing outside...
bb system is same type system as the R 20. Worryed about what sort of replacement is awailable here, this country is a "third world country" when it comes to modifying and rebuilding bikes. Alot of people on bikes these days but all is "stock" , 60% is offroad (80% two three years ago) is my impression.
