I like that, never seen one before. Did you put the canada wrap on the cannisters?

if you knock it hard, don't you bend the cartridge in the holder.

Neat, but doesn't look overly practical

I’d imagine that’s certainly a possibility, or crack the holder. The threads are fully wound in so it’s pretty solid.

Practical? When did that stop us :lol:

Never, that's why it's neat :-) :lol:

There are some idiots hurtling downhill over bumpy stuff at 20-30+mph on 25-30 year old boingy forks.

Very interesting. Never seen one before. The Canada wrap is a nice finishing touch. Here a similar solution that came on Miyata bikes.

Very cool 8) Is there a specific braze on for that to attach to?
