  1. Project 1 : Fox Seat

    Hi Folks,

    I have been doing a bit more work on the seat.

    I decided to keep the chipboard seat I had made as a test. I know the plans call for plywood and I suspect that I could save a few ounces if I used that. But I figure the extra weight will just get me fitter, quicker . I may change the main seat body for ply at a later date.

    I have to say, having never ridden one of these before, so I did not know exactly what to expect. Wow ! This is so much fun.

    Up until now I have been an off road mountain biker, ever seeking that rush of downhill forest trails. Living in the flatlands of East Anglia, UK. These are few and far between. Now I can get the same rush from country roads on my home built Foxy.

  5. Project 1 : Fox Chain and Chain Management

    Hi Folks,

    Fitting the chain and chain management is the next stage, so I have been reading the AZ forums, looking at other’s photographs; even posted some comments and received excellent feedback from the AZ community (thanks all).

    I have decided to go with the two idler (pulley wheel) approach. One will be mounted just behind the cross boom, with the other mounted behind the seat.
