Yes I have the 70 degree tank which has threaded inserts. The PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) subframes are very strong, as shown by several riders who are traveling with them now and the Dakar bikes which loaded rear saddle fuel tanks on and those are heavy. The Medium Rolies aren't really that big and I won't be loading lead ingots into them, mostly just dry food or camping gear. It's an experiment I want to try.
