    sweet, looks homemade! Appears to be a 451 on the front and 406s on the back. Also appears to be a single speed with no differential, and a dynohub in front. Lack of a differential would be a problem when cornering.

    Not a dyno hub. It has both a drum brake and rim brake on the front wheel.
    Ride lots, have fun, skid often!

    Haha - thanks Chop - that is Epic!
    I don't think many trikes have differentials (even though they should) Pashley ones don't at least which makes them a real handful if you want to turn one on a sixpence (ie on a dime U.S. readers)

    Speaking of R20 Drivetrains - anyone know where I can get a generic derailleur hanger like wot might fit on a Twenty dropout?

    Any LBS should have a hanger that bolts onto the R20 dropout. You will have to drill a small hole in the R20's flat part of the dropout to fit the nut 'n bolt, I've done this with my R20 SS so I could use a chain tensioner. I did have to grind the nut down a wee bit but it works fine.

    Sweet - I actually just found this which looks perfect. Yes - this means I might be making inroads in getting the fabled r520 on the road.. .
