i have a pdf file that is three pages that has some really good pictures of a braced frame from japan that is bronze welded together,and a very good visual for someone who is wanting to brace there own.
but i can't upload a pdf file to the site,so if someone can tell me how to convert it to something that i can upload i will gladly share :) .

Dang, you're right, can't attach pdf's directly in a post, as far as I remember you used to able to.

Anyway, you should be able to upload a pdf to the filebase.

Thanks for the email!

It is similar to what I've seen before with the exception of the extra down tubes that attach to the neck.

Cool stuff.

"honey i got another project!!!! "
you keep that up and she will know how much time and money you spend,and then she will want to regulate both.
best to keep the women out of the bike business:P .
you should tell her that you just go the garage and relax,meditate whatever.and sometimes a midget comes and takes all your money!
see,then you account for your time and money!
okay maybe she won't go for a midget rolling your biga$$,but it does account for the time!
then when you bust your knuckles wrenching you can tell her the midget got his a$$ kicked.
okay don't listen to me and keep doin whatever attracted her to you in the first place:woohoo: .
