You need to start having wrenchfests over here instead :)

I usually just leave it at Erins. He does most of the work. Only reason Dale did the gears is because we are kind of in a time crunch with his work schedule and Loonie run. Also, would be over Erins way anyway alot...ya know, that whole dating thing.

Axle is in......just a few more little things to button up before Canada.

I really can't tell if it is, but it doesn't look like it from my phone, but I thought you were going to shave or cut it?

It is 2 tubes with a full 1/2 inch plate across top. It's pretty damn solid. I'm sure Erin will be going over it this weekend and he may add more bracing.

Yours looks like a single tube? Mine has 2 tubes on either side. This is it from EORP.
