View Full Version : Front Wheel Drive Setup? Any direction on how to set this up?

08-15-2017, 11:08 AM
I am thinking of buying the plans for the tomahawk low racer recumbent. I have seen pictures of those who have gone with a front wheel drive crankset. This looks more simple and easy to manage vs a long chain drive. Are there instructions in the plans on how to set up a front wheel drive? Or are there other resources which show how to do this properly?

jrich, the Tomahawk is rear wheel drive, if you want a front wheel drive that would be the FrontRunner

However as these plans are guideline and not blue prints- You could combined the two plans to get the customized bike your looking to build.
Use the back half of the Tomahawk with the Front of the front runner. Just an idea.
I will refer to Twinkles Streetfox's she has built. Initial Streetfox frame with under seat steering added. Then with Disc brake wheels. And has since add Electric boost and her own ideas of a straight boom.
Options are endless.
