    Hard choice for WB. In one corner raleigh twenty on the other corner folding bike (puzzles at the moment).

    I have a plan to clean and clear coat raleigh leaving original paintjob as is.

    For folding bike - I have duomatix hub - (two gear with kickback switch and coaster brake) it will make clean simple line with no cables etc.

    Which of them should I do? What do you think? twenty.jpg IMG_20191030_074240.jpg

    Welcome aboard the WBO freederix!

    That Raleigh 20 has some unique parts and features, probably would be a very solid bike when you finish and a cool rider.

    The other one offers more 'customizing' possibilities.

    I guess it depends on which one might be most Rat-isfying to you in the end!

    I like the look of the 20, and your folding option is intriguing. ​

    Twenty has 3 gears and dynohub front. I also have wheels with 3 gears and drum brake.

    I wonder what the folder frame looks like with the fork in upside down and the frame inverted (I can't leave anything stock)

    It takes a real man to cut one up!

    Yes, both, totally!

    I love the Raleigh 20, I have a couple, a non folding fixed gear and a folding single speed. I would upgrade the wheels and brakes, and strip off everything that isn't a bad ..., sporty bike. ss 20.jpg fixed gear 20.jpg
