Default Re: A step-thru china girl. Almost.

Yup. I'm having some second thoughts about that lowest brace, too.

Though the brace is there, I can see that it's the weakest point in this rig.

It would be a simple matter to include another identical strut on the other side. I'll have to think about whether or not I'd feel confident with that. Or I might have to rebuild that brace with something heavier.

Plus maybe a couple of struts from higher up, widening out around the engine, and down to the down tube.

I'm gonna have to be careful with this. If I ever ride it, I'll be skating on thin ice.
