on a foam core carbon fibre frame
The chassis of Critical Power is a carbon fiber recumbent bicycle also known as a short wheel base, remote steered, front wheel drive lowracer. The frame was constructed from a single piece of carbon fiber sandwich board, then the frame shape was cut-out of the board. The edges were laminated, and the components were installed with aluminum brackets.
D: I could use foam wrapped in carbon fibre.
Different beast though.
Likely to test with plywood (!) frame.
To make sure all attachment points work.
A heat resistant foam would play well with resin-impregnated fibre.
