    Tuned Epic link.

    I did some machining on my rear suspension link. No scale to weigh it, but I'm sure I shaved a few grams.

    Uh-oh! Look out! Another guy with access to a milling machine!

    Looks good!!!!

    Now, start making parts from scratch, earn respect and start your own business!


    p.s. - stay out of the disc brake arena! It's mine!


    Watch out, it's addictive! What are you milling/drilling/shaving next?

    I've been a Machinist for 14 years. I turned all my own cable guides and sleeves, and brake boss plugs.

    Tuned a thomson 30.9mm post to 177grams. 2 years later it's still going strong. You would never know it unless you peered under the seat.
    Slotted my seatpost and brake lever clamps as well.

    I only like to remove material that is not adding significant strength. Esthetics are important, but not at the expense of reliability.

    Hmmm...

    Hey, this is James from TWT. Were you the machinist guy that had the centers of all of his bolts drilled out?

    Yeah James, I'm the guy. Name is Mark. Great work on my SID. Once again a big thanks for noticing the crack in my frame, and getting me set up with a warranty replacement.

    Nice tuning work. I'd guess you saved more than a couple of grams.
