i know thers threads about this but i dont wanna dig them up.
so heres what im thinkin of doing, let me know if you think its good or a stupid idea lol it sounds good in my head
so i want the get a piece of 1/4" thick steel plating and cut a strip like 8"x2 1/2"(or whatever the diameter of the head tube is) i then want to cut a slice into the top and bottom of the frame head tube and insert the steel strip then weld it in place
heres a pic of what im thinkin, its not a stock frame but the location is good
my thinking is this. if you were to take the metal and hold it horizonataly you could bend it down fairly easily but if you took the same peice of metal and held it up verticaly it would be almost impossible to bend down. so when you put the metal in the frame vertically it should make the frame much harder to bend and rake out. unless the welds bust or something lol
does this make sense?
i posted this in another thread too so if you read it twice thats why
