Default Re: Crushing Aluminum

Great, thanks guys!

So some nice gasket material in between the steel mounting plates and the aluminum frame. This Mr. Gasket 9615 should do the job well, yes?

I already regret buying a bike with 24" tires hah... hard to find some heavy duty inner tubes or compatible Mr.tuffy, contacted bikebuyers, hopefully they can help.

And as for torque'ing down the bolts until I see the frame crush slightly... is that really a good idea? makes me nervous!
The best part about asking questions, is that you add to the pool of information that future builders can look back on through the search function
