Thanks. I can't tell you how much I appreciate this thread.
Cool man! Hope it helped! There are lots of ways to do this, but thought I would show you what I did. I guess the biggest thing is picking the right reference points to get things true and square. Lots of measuring and just being patient. Hopefully even some of the ideas will help someone.BuzzKilr said:Thanks. I can't tell you how much I appreciate this thread.
Yep! This is true! You would have to handle things differently in that case.watch out for offset wheels... some people build offset wheels to get a fat 16" tyre onto a British bike which hasn't got room for it. If you have one of these, you will have a pemanent problem which the above procedure can't deal with.
With the correct bolts torqued appropriately there shouldn't be a problem. If the hardtail is never going to be changed weld it in place or buy a weld-on tail.Is there any benefit of a bolt on hard-tail versus a weld on? It seems that all of that allignment would be made easier with a weld on. It also seems a bit dodgy to just bolt a hard-tail on I've seen a grip of fasteners break and I would hate to be going 80 when that goes down. I apologize if this is a completely stupid question but I AM a rookie biatch.
