Look I spell shit wrong ALL the time...but just a little note:

Rigid means solid like is my frame....

Ridged, means it has ridges....you know like little rails.

Now chances are I have spelled it wrong in this forum....if one of you anal MFs point it out I will send you a book.

Thanks for bringing this up. I'm completely fucking neurotic regarding spelling and grammar. It helps in my field. I generally keep my mouth shut, or risk looking like an asshole. I get crazy when I see deceleration devices called "breaks," or certain tires called "Dunlaps." Don't even mention the various bastardizations of "Dell'Orto." I need a muscle relaxant.

My mother was a fanatic about spelling and grammar......I am also, to a point. I get pissed when I can't understand a post due to a combination of bad spelling, bad grammar, and no punctuation. Sometimes I need a decoder ring.
