fatdaddy- Did you see my post on the fact that it took me TEN hours to mount a 4 banger on a 29" Onex? No joke. Lack of experience, or lack of skill, I don't know
...but without having machined mounts, if you put the time in, you can still get it hella flat to the frame. That's the right way.

Metal to metal.
I believe.

Words that have motivated me plenty of times.
It's cooler to not fall off your bike.
