The guy (expletive math wiz) next to me was taking his time telling me how wrong it was that I took that approach.

I looked at his part and said, "it is your clamp. Build it your way"

LOL, and he got the math wrong and was out of tolerance.

Really do enjoy your posts and your approach to building.

If it ain't fun, why bother?
Thanks Dan, I really do enjoy building and riding these things. And I'm glad to see any "know it all SOB" get put in his place. Good one.
And I say if it ain't fun, Don't do it. And if it is fun. Do it again.
I don't have it as my signature, perhaps I should. I just stick it in if needed. Like now.
