    Andre's StreetFox builds

    Joey, I have plenty of old SAE wrench, but have only a couple of metric ones. So a new set was still cheaper than buying individual cone wrench. Emiel, Sorry you can't find these on the side of the road in your country. Today was both real good and real bad. (No injuries) I continued to take...

    Thank you Paul and Joey, you were both right. the axle is 3/8in. These won't be good for my purpose. But it's going to be a good guinea pig to learn new skills. Bought this set of metric wrench that will converted to cone wrench when needed. Paid 28$ for the set. This is the first to be...

    Thank you all for your replies, I appreciate your support. I have so much reading to do. I have 6 plans to go through. I'm sure it will help wrap my head around this new rabbit hole I'm jumping into. I did not plan to weld myself until now. I found a local cooperative workshop where they have...

    Andre's StreetFox builds

    Hello Everyone, I will detail here my StreetFox builds, yes with an S. I want to build one for my wife and one for myself. But first, I need to collect some parts, which I'm working on. First question if I may. The SF requires two BMX 20inch wheels. Must they both be BMX front wheels? Can I...
