    Cool. I just ordered a set of aluminum handrims, so I’ll throw those into the chair and then I’ll have all the time in the world to cut and sand down the titanium ones. Plus the aluminum handrims...

    I'm honestly not sure. I know next to zero about welding aluminum to titanium. If it's pretty easy to do, I'd bet there's a good chance they used aluminum.

    What did you use to cut off the protruding portions of the axle mounts? I've got a lot of excess there, and I think it looks bad in addition to getting in the way.

    Not sure how old you gotta be to be “older”, but I remember back when the site was busy and highly trafficked. This place taught me almost everything I know about how to do this whole cripple thing.

    I think you're right, WTF though? Why would they make them obviously too wide? It takes some serious force to wedge it in there. Seems like a simple enough fix.
