Default Re: Skyhawk frame build / thoughts

After some very VERY meticulous measuring and tack welding (repeat) i got the forks extended. It took more time verifying the tube was straight than the actual welding. It's straight though!

Gotta get to a computer to resize the picture...

A new question popped up though. Why us the seat post so big? It measures about 1.075". All my seat posts flop around in there. Think "hotdog in a hallway".

One seat post measures 0.955", and the other is 1.000". Still 0.075" of free play with the biggest one, and that's still a lot. We're not talking horseshoes or hand grenades here!
