Default Re: My Felt 1903 build progress

Hey did you change the mounts? Was it an angle thing? On my first build I felt the rattling in my peddles all the time, but I had no shock absorbtion on those mounts, and it was a 1947 Monark steel-tube frame which evetually gave up. The weld failed where the down tube hits the head set. I think it would have failed no matter what, but it could have been aided by the force you are talking how did you change it so you couldn't feel the vibes in the peddles? here's some pics of the first build.
