Another R20 mod question
I'm using a BMX fork with Vbrake bosses for my next project, problem is the steerer is just too short for the R20's head tube, so do I...
1: Cut the head tube down to fit, which means I need a longer headstem, (no problem there), or....
2: Put a 22.2mm insert into the BMX steerer, then add approx 2.5 inch length of threaded steerer over the insert then drill holes and spot/tack weld it all together. This is quite a safe process and it would keep the R20's front angle original.
