Custom 20" street trials mod [Upgraded]

17 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Back in the days when I rode trials I used to f*ck up my bike in by beginning of a new season.

This year I am glad to start with a "brand new". For a long time I had an idea building a mod that

would have advantages of a bmx bike on the streets, but was still suitable for some trials jibs.

I was not sure what geo and parts it should have, so build it as an experimental bike.  After testing it

for a month I can say that I reached my goal. I can do things (on same level) that I did on a my mod bike

9 years ago, plus I got a bike with pretty close geo to my bmx. B)

So would pretty much any mod if you put a higher seat-tube and saddle on the frame, and a 20" rim/tyre on the rear.

True. Was before I started with trials though. I only know Mods with +80 and more BBs. That's why this one looks so funny to me. :)

I am not sure about those black and white stickers on fork, but I like graphics on the other parts.
