    Hi all. I have a question. I found a 20" trike for almost free ($10). I was wondering if the front mount Staton friction kit would work with a 20" wheel trike. all i see are 26" trikes with that kit applied. Also can a BMP kit be made to fit a front mount setup? Im trying to make the ultimate low-cost Grocery-Getter.

    This trike would allow a front basket too, due to the low frame and long gooseneck. Im looking for a low maint. setup. I currently have a Happy Time setup that is troublesome on the good days. I would think that the friction drive may be the best route.

    the picture is of the trike.

    You should probably call David Staton to make sure their kit will work (he's not good about email, but is very helpful if you can get him on the phone). I think it would probably work, and is probably the most reliable kit for that trike (in dry weather). I'm not familiar with BMP.

    10 bucks is a killer deal for that trike
