Not getting any response from anyone at RANS so thought I would post here. Also posted on BROL so I thought I would cross post here since this is a RANS specific forum.

Does anyone know if the fork on the 2009 V3 AL can be changed to a 20" fork? Will this fork on the Shop RANS website work on the V3? http://www.shoprans.com/proddetail.asp?prod=BPFK0010G Is there clearance on the V3 with a 20" fork for a V-brake.

Also on the rear can a 26" (559) wheel be used instead of the 650? There is a mount for a V-brake on the rear stay. Is this mount compatible with a 26" wheel?

I would like to setup the V3 with a 20" front, 26" rear, with V-brakes. Also would like to replace the Hoagie seat with the sling mesh. I believe this will lower the bottom bracket and make the V3 more usable in town instead of just an open country bike.
