    Conic frustum is my word of the day. Thanks for all your help!

    Ignoring the disproven power advantages of a curved crank, is the shape itself stronger than a straight crank? I'm basing this question on the understanding that arches are stronger than a straight lintel in buildings. However im not sure if the load needs to be applied in the center of the arch for this to be true, as opposed to at the end in the case of a crank i.e. is the force applied at the pedal of the crank arm producing a tensile force across the crank? I'm not an engineer so forgive any mistakes in my use of terminology.

    Just looking at a reggy smeggy disc tab. Not even sure what the long tang is for. Just going to be mig welding them on some mates frames, so I’m not really ‘in the market’ so to speak. For a run I’d highly recommend London water jet though. Had some unrelated work done by them and they were very helpful. All you need is a dxf and they’ll do the rest, sourcing material, setup etc

    Pretty much the title. Only found bear frame supplies outside of America. Am I doing something wrong?

    There is a youtube video i can't find anymore that shows you how to seam tape around sewn corners. It basically involves using the edge of an ironing board to do what @Chopsicle suggested to flatten the seam sew you can lay the seam tape flat. I'm just gonna use seam grip and the process shown here.
