Thanks. The armature that came with light seems to do something similar
so it does, and in fact a better solution as it allows you to cantilever the light up and more forward to get it over the top of the curvature
Not the most amazing thing I have ever purchased but I'll make it work
Seems like you've already started to put it to good work on your 'gram!
Oh yes! Thanks.
And it meant I could back to framebuilding...
So it's a thing that lets you fabricate things, that lets you fabricate other things. Workshop envy (as usual)!
Yes. It is s rabbit hole.
What have you used on the headset/steerer to replace the quill? I'm doing a very similar project and this is nice and tidy. I like.
Thanks. I extend the steerer tube by welding more 1 1/8" tube on top of the existing tube. I use a 40-50mm length of 1" steerer as a internal plug and weld it all together. I make sure the seam is within the head tube and use v block to make sure everything is straight.
Some framebuilders finds this bad practice, so I can't recommend you doing it.
Of course you did! I thought there might be some wizardry in there. I'll probably just plump for a quill adaptor if I need to change stem/bars.
So what's the counter arguments? Structural failure likely?
I really can't see how it could fail. It would mean the headset would fail as well and I can't see that happening.
I have been doing it for 6 years ish and haven't experienced failure yet, but I won't do it for money and if I do it for someone else I tell them not to sell the forks to someone else as I am not able to insure that it will be safe.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
