Unfortunately the back wheel has a coaster brake...
What do you seek to accomplish here? Could you not simply use a derailer wheel? They do exist in the 20" size -- I'm looking at one right here. You'd get five gears in the bargain.
Ok Elliot ya "sold" me! I've actually been wanting more then a single speed bike/trike.
I just don't know if the wider tires will fit a different rim then what its already on. The rim its on now just looks like a normal size rim to me.
I need to take one of the tires (20"x3.0") off and try it on a different rim to see if it'll fit.
The real dilemma is.....a regular wheel wont fit onto a trike conversion kit because its not hollow hubbed.
Thats why I may have to come up with my own design (with borrowed ideas from Instructables
and a low-rider conversion kit) that uses regular hubbed wheels on it .
Or do perhaps my good Sir...you have another suggestion?
So the theme this year is like a giant camp out in the desert? With people bringing lots of shit from all over? uh.. -Marscrumbs
