Default Re: Snapped Rear Mounting Studs (3rd time!)

EDIT: Oh hold on, never mind. I see the plate now. The first picture there is at just the wrong angle.
At first I was hesitant about drilling that hole too, however the front mount is extremely sturdy and none of those studs have snapped yet.

I have put countless hours into building this bike (I'd estimate around 40) yet I only have 100 miles on it so far
