Hi Jack, looks like you're getting this well set up now. I saw you wrote elsewhere about having a problem with not enough thread on the tie bar to correct the geometry. How did you get round it? And what kit did you borrow and was it easy to use?

Oh I see. I thought you'd cut them too short and run out the other way. How does the gauge fit to the wheel? I've seen them used on a brake disc with the wheel off and the weight off, but that defeats the object as the suspension isn't in the natural running position - looks like you mounted it to the wheel?

Ha ha I hadn't spotted the wheel change. I was trying to work out how you'd got the magnet to stick to your alloy split rims!

Hi Jack. I'm confused..... looks like good progress but you're selling off a load of parts on Facebook - what's the plan?
