ED2 Frame

Post by Kryten » Mon Jan 29, 2024 8:42 pm

I did see recently a comment about a frame being bent in a way that I’d never heard of.

That is the right hand side foot peg loop. Seemingly the forces involved in using the rear brake causes the lower tube to bend.

As this is the first time I’ve heard of this, can anyone confirm this either way?

There is on WeEvil Bay this:

Which shows the curve……

With even all that frame straightening on my baby kat I’ve done even I can’t work out how they bend. Although a tube becomes weaker when it has a second taken out and replaced with a hollow circle ⭕️
