Hahaha, I thought that might get someone. He lives very close so we ride together whenever our schedules permit. He's done a couple BDDR's, many of my group rides and we do the odd road trip. Fyi he's "Benthanger" on RFG.

Agreed, I called him a "Ham fist"! He said; Blame the machine man!
I'm gonna inspect it for growth periodically, if it grows, I'll find a machine that fits all the way into that tube.
