About Me

Great to find so many Twentys, and variations right here a one stop 'shopper'

Located my first R20 folder in blue back in 2004....influenced a design of 2008 and now under construction as a one off. This bike is a cross between the R20 and the newly discovered (as of January '13) Revelation. Now l would love to find one to bring to Oz! ;)

Hi Ikara
Nice to hear from you and so glad you enjoyed the Otago Central Rail Trail. I worked on it for about 3 years servicing a fleet of 350 hire bikes!!
One day I hope to ride it again but this time on a Twenty.

Hi !nk
The Twenty is running great! I took her out for a spin on christmas day along blackpool promenade and she rides smooth as butter.
I havent got round to taking any photos yet as my gardens a bit of a mess, as soon as I get tidied up there'll be loads.
She doesnt need anything doing to her, just cosmetic bits and pieces, I'm kicking around a few ideas in my head but think I would like to go with a nice bright green or a collage of leaves.
Happy, Healthy & High New Year to You and Yours

Hi Ikara Oz
Thanks for your encouragement. It'll take me a while i think. The BSA is quite standard though so easier to upgrade: it has 24tpi BB and a proper headset with 7/8" steerer (1" tube). Wheels are 406mm.

Trying to decide whether to go fixed/singlepeed or multispeed.

Hi InK,
Good ideas. I like the idea of the Brooks spring seat in Tan/Honey leather. It's my first priority.
In the meantime I will be looking at new pedals, and a cane/wicker basket for the front.
The bike will be practically used for small shopping trips, post office, to the beach and exercising my dog.
I won't be cycling any Ironman runs or long trips of any kind, so easy, relaxing and fun cycling only.....the journey continues

Hi InK,
Thanks for making contact!
I'd love to see some photos of your rides. You should start a thread about your collection. It may get us all very jealous about not only your bikes but your location also!
I'm looking for an untainted foldable twenty, made in england with an un-drilled frame. If you'd be willing to part with one of your beauties, I'd be very interested. Plus with the foldable twenties, a courier to brisbane would be quite cheap!
Please let me know. [email protected]

Hey Twenty Folks + All,
Just bought a Twenty in Blue on Saturday in Somers, Down Under! This is my second '74 folder....the first was free, as it was spotted in or around Brighton late at night on top of 'hard-rubbish' in 2004. Love this new R20 just as much......will try to post pic with pad if l get my thumbs sorted from my fingers (all thumbs @ mo!) Cheers, Ivan John.... ps. It was the free R20 that has brought me to a life changing direction, where today l am one of two working on a new folding bike called 'bilby' (bi16y)
