Looking forward to that !!

Joe, as far as the connection to the steering head, both welding and through bolting has been done without problems from what I have seen in other posts, Personally I would go with welding, if the welder knows what he is doing, there should be no damage to the bearing seats. And if need be I could cut the welds and go to my previous situation without too much hassle... You can go to the extreme though and put both bolts and spot weld them in place
Now that is something that I have never seen before in this situation

My first tower broke off at the condo as well and it also got repaired with fencing wire and bits of stick

Here's my mk2 in carbon/kevlar. I'll see how it holds up tomorrow after a ~ 400 km ride I've got planned.

Looks good Michael, how many sheets and what consistency was the layup? Was it vacuum moulded?

I know nothing so maybe we should just go straight to the fencing wire.

Thanks. It's 4 x carbon and one Kevlar mostly, I put a few more layers of carbon closer to the headstock end.

It was just layed up on a temporary mold, nothing fancy. Vacuum bagging is my next project.

How does it compare to the 2x2 rigid?
