Re: Looking for an Extra-Large Mounting Bracket
Well, I really feel like the "knife-edge" loading on the aluminum frame that would result from a plain u-bolt would damage the frame. I'd much rather replace the mounting studs than destroy my bike frame. I'm not going to be using this motorized bicycle as a daily driver. I'll probably be lucky to put an hour on it a week, and only to run an errand or get some air when the weather is nice in the evening. Rubber mounts just seem natural to me, having worked on classic cars since I could walk. If I end up replacing the mounting bolts with some high quality ones down the road, all the better.
