Chapter 8 Pt. 3 - Footrests - Footrest Itself
Rather than moving on to the bottom mounts on the frame, I did the footrest itself. It's nice when parts jig themselves up, everything ends up fitting better. So the idea here was to cut and assemble the pieces for the footrest using the completed upper mount as a guide. Then once the footrest was finished, use it to build the lower mounts in exactly the right spots on the frame.
The other thing about this design is that I wanted something removable and interchangeable. I'm not entirely sure what kind of riding this bike will be used for, and thus the ideal riding position isn't easy to define. So I can pop this piece out and build something different later on if needed.
