Hello, I have my first build all dialed in and ready for tear down to paint and reassemble so... what now? Most would finish it, not me! I am starting a street fox with a few warrior features. I am going to do this one correctly, meaning I am going to post as often as I am able to make progress and ask questions before I build it 2 or 3 times on my own. This will hopefully make me more accountable and keep build time reasonable/

I have accumulated a donor bike, pair of Quando 36 hole hubs with disc mount and 20 mm axle hole. I have torn down a pair of single wall aluminum rims and started to prep head tubes and fork stems. Here is my question. Will the swing arm I have work? it is not a triangle set up as Brad uses in the plans. I have this style as well but it is only a 24 wheel. Thoughts on which to use? Here are photos.

Will it work- probably- as to the 24 inch wheel it will just allow you to climb hills a little easier and go a little slower in compared to a 26" wheel. But not by much. Looks like your on a good start. Welcome to the fun.

as long as the angles for the steering parts as per plans the swing arm will not matter

biggest drawback to 24inch wheels is limited tires and n tubes that are available

if seat angles are a problem can use a sling seat and build mounts to fit the frame
