    Counters the weight of the extended rear axle mast so the frame sits level.
    Sweet, huh?

    Ok, i'll play! looks like we've come to some similar understandings with our jigs. My axle block was modded to bolt in an anvil dummy but i added the quick lok clamp soon after.
    It seems like we found the same chopper headtube cones on ebay for use with 44mm stuff, works like a dream.

    I built a run of cycletrucks a while back with 20" front wheels and a foot long headtube, the stock placement of the upper heim joint was right in the way so I built an extender brace to jump the gap. It worked so well I left it on there and feel better about building tall 29'rs now that the headtube isn't waving around at the top of the steerer rod.

    Those are both really sweet!
    Didn't you change the config of the seat tube "holder?"
