Anyone ever done anything like this before? I am at a loss for ideas on how to attach the supports to the "outrigger" dropout. There are two screw holes horizontal and about an inch and a half apart. This is on the part that sticks out from the chainstay above the dropout thus being called an "outrigger". I want to make a metal plate with little tubes attached for the bamboo to stick into like a tent post set up.
Maybe that makes sense?
Anyway, I will be adding a center support going straight up and down using the hole in the front on the dropout setup. I think this is going to work. I was holding it together and laying all of my weight on it and it seems really really strong. Let me know how you all feel about this.
I think it looks pretty cool too.
