    cool! i made one here at work as well. granted its just a peice of shelf iron but it should give me an idea if it works or not. it seems to with my flex “testing” so far. did you put nay sort of caps on it so that it wouldnt slide out? it doesnt seem to me it would really move much.

    The piece i made is pretty tight in there so i dont think it wil come out unless the tour bracket opens. I used compression fittings on each end just because i had them.

    Cometogether are you attending the silverton splitfest? i am going to make a few of these S.S braces out of what scrap i have left, to give away to fellow splitters that are interested in them. Kind of my way to try and give back to the split community that i think is so rad. I think the tubing solved that “sheer problem” that was bugging me. Adds weight but it was worth it to me.

    The pin looks really good.
    I can not believe I did not think of that.

    I will try it out as well. Should make the board a bit stiffer.

    is this really a problem? I’ve been splitting for a fair number of years now and have never noticed this being a problem. I also feel this way in general about the board haves needing to fit “tighter”. I can’t tell any difference between kclips and voile hooks besides the kclips being harder to use. the only time I can maybe remember feeling the board halves flex differently while riding was on an icy groomer night boarding at brighton a few years ago. What conditions are you guys feeling this happen in? I just don’t know if I am totally missing something or what? also i’ve been on the same solid arbor for 8 years now and I have ridden it maybe 4 times in the past 5 years. so I guess I don’t have a good reference for comparing the feel of a splitboard to new solid board. In general I think my Chimera and even my mojoRX split ride much better than my solid.

    I dont know about how everyone else feels about the “Sheer” factor of splits, but the T.Rce i have w K bindings has excessive sheering betweent the halves and it bothers me. I guess its -to each his own. the S.S rod between the tour brackets helped greatly to stiffen the board and stop the sheer beween the feet. i didnt notice it as bad when the board was new and had spark R&D set up. i just built a regular camber, Skunk Ape w triple clips and S.S bar and it is much better. i am going to post the Skunk build when i get time. i should have taken pics of the sheer on that T.R board before i striped it of hardware to build the skunk.
