Firecloud cycles do a fork with an extra long steerer tube that will work on the 20 and it has the setup for the v brakes. You will have to run the 406mm wheels on it from what i can remember from doing mine. For the back brakes i took the horseshoe shaped bracket from a mountain bike front fork and welded to the back to give a setup for v brakes and i used balloon tyres on that bike. What way do you upload photos to this site?Got myself another fork, first thing is to add some V-brake bosses. Hacked the ones of the old fork (no use with odd sized steerer) :
Next, position them for welding on the new fork:
And welding complete:
A spray over with matt black and job done:
The completed bike thus far, ready for some test rides:
And a couple of close-ups:
Will run it with just the front brake for now, fine for round these parts. May later add V-brake bosses to rear, or may go for coaster so as not to spoil the paintwork. Had to chop about 1.5" off the head tube to get the fork to fit, but the extra long gooseneck is just the right height at full extension - was a bit worried about that one. Had a quick ride around the block already, and those fat tyres sure give a plush ride. Might fetch over the colour-coded mudguards from UK, if shortened a bit would look good I think. That's it for now.....
