  • If it was me I’d want to trim the legs back to get past the slotted bit (assuming the legs are slotted to accept the plate drops?) to ensure 360 degree support. I’d have thought leaving the slots there would just be a massive stress riser and recipe for disaster.

    Also, personally, would want to pile plenty filler material in there to ensure a proper bond.

  • You might be able to cut the dropout away and use a lug style end like this.

  • Interesting, thanks. I don't think those will be the right solution, as it doesn't look like they will offer enough additional length, but they do look nice!
