I’m looking for that thread that was posted a few months ago where people welded a bar from their seatpost to the front near the handle to strengthen the seat. My KH is getting wacky loose, and it’s time to fix it or break it. WACKY!
I searched, but I’m waiting for that sharp little guy that will quickly come in and post about how he found the thread in 2 minutes.
Keep in mind that you want to maintain access to the four bolts that hold the seat on and the bolts that hold the handle on. If you make too big of a gusset you may find that you can no longer fit a socket wrench in there to tighten some of the nuts. Think about access while you’re designing it.
Awesome. What should I use for the aluminum angle piece? I don’t really want to bend it myself, seeing as I don’t really have those skills. Did you just find some part and cannibalize it, then shape it right?
Buy the aluminum already bent at the right angle. This metal can be found at a hardware or builders supply store like Home Depot or Lowes. I used aluminum angle that was1/8" thick and 1" long for each leg. Then just cut off a small piece, cut and file to shape desired and drill the holes. No bending is required.
