And that's fine ... mostly.

I'm grateful for his experiments and investigations and he's provided us with valuable information and worthwhile ideas. A few crackpot ideas, too, but that's part of the process. I'm glad he exists. It's just a matter of extracting the value and ignoring the "less savory elements".

I dot mind him to be fair. ...THERES LOTS OF PEOPLE who are shit at talking but have plenty to offer technically

I'm a toolmaker of 20 years, a professional CAD designer of 10 years.
Reading Pvd's stuff made me feel sad for the students he deals with. Lots of buzz words and repeated lines to fill out his post.

If he was shitposting I'd give h credit though. Sadly not.

Pvd contributes as much as Wakidesign. We'd be better off if we didn't have to hear from either.

yeah, but space for, but no bottle cage mounts? dangerous for the succes rate.


But for real: pretty spot on.

Ticking all the boxes for me!

I've got a problem and I'm wondering if anyone could help me.
The plan was to chop the top off a cheap steel pivotal seat post to braze to my (steel) seat tube, to make a neat ISP on the dirt jump frame I have just started. Turns out the top part is actually aluminium and is just pressed into a steel shaft.

Am I shit out of luck? Seems like brazing aluminium to steel is a no-go.
Sorry if it's a stupid question, done some research but I have zero knowledge of anything other than brazing.

trying to wrap my head around building a single pivot dual susp. so far the most daunting task seems to be trying to learn fusion360! built the shock in fusion first as it seems to be a good first project. eye to eye set to 230 mm, and max compression set to 60 mm.

the plan is to build something that doesnt require any machining, based off of the curtis xr650 - but with 29" wheels.

probably going to use a headset and steer tube as the pivot.

anyone else tackle a dual susp?
Hey Mark! If you need anything turned on a lathe let me know. I have the goods.

You can't weld or braze Aluminum to Steel. You can bond them with 2-part epoxy. Most of the big brands have products specifically for bonding metal to metal.

I'd actually recommend using a Nylon (plastic) Pivotal seatpost instead of aluminum or steel though. It'll be easier to work with, and if it gets damaged or you decide to modify the frame, it'll be a lot easier to remove without damaging the seat tube.

Just be sure to get an epoxy that's made for bonding plastic to metal, and thoroughly rough up the surface of the seatpost nub with coarse grit sand paper.

Is 304 stainless strong enough for mtb frame? I'm planning to get a 50x2mm tube for down tube and 40x2 for top tube. 6060 aluminium is second option but I won't be able to heat treat it.

Any material is strong enough if you put enough in ....304st steel is just a bit higher tensile strength than mild steel so look on it as quite a thick wall your half the strength rough figure than 4130 treated condition and still lower than 4130 in annealed condition so don't go using no 35 thou wall 2mm is probably overkill 1.6 maybe stainless steel also has a very slightly higher mass than old 4130
