Brad,

I have the Warrior plans.

Question on page 110, is the lowering of the frame 1.5 in. only temperary for layout purposes ?

Just about got all the parts & am about ready to start asembley........I'm stoked !

I've read over the plans about 6 times & praticed on some scrap tubing for heat/feed settings on my gas mig.

Are sealed bearings on the BB stronger in your opinion ?

Yes indeed, it is because you are placing the tubing to be cut over the top of the main boom to use it as a guide.
I do find the cartridge BBs to be more robust and certainly maintenance free as compared to the cup version.

Thanks for the answer Brad.

My BB bearings were pretty trashed from my donor bike, good to know about the cartridge BB bearing sets.
