    Bust out duct tape and put it on the bicycle tubing until everything is mocked up. Take it off at the last minute lol.

    Good ol goop is easier to clean than scratches. lol did not know if you were on a budget. Any tape will help and the duct tape does leave some goo.

    In the auto body shop we used the duct tape several layers deep. One never knew if they were going to slip up with purty cursive and write there name on something. Rotary files are the absolute worst, best pretty cursive writing out of no where I ever saw. Liken to that unread able doctors prescription signature. Nothing really duplicates that prideful moment lol.laff

    turns out their factory is closed until january 3rd, and they take 3 weeks to build the bikes on average+ how ever long it takes to ship. think i mite be cancelling my order, not really in the mood to wait a full month just on a bike so i can begin building.

    not like i even ordered a super extravagant bike, was the absolutely most basic worksman...........

    open to other suggestions on bikes, mite just pick up a cranbrook since they're cheap and easy to mount.
