Re: Help a newbee, if you feel like it.
THANKS Dave. That's exactly what I needed to know. I plan to reinforce that stay on both sides, somehow, undecided as yet. Possibly a split tube overlay, or machined split aluminum block. I also plan to add a full length tube into the seat post tube and use a smaller post. Not sure about the front main tube yet either. Any ideas gratefully received, as always. Thanks, H.
