    Default what tube?

    Hi,

    you may have told us in an earlier post, if so could you repeat it please?

    Could you tell us what tube you're using? Size and wall thickness? And what do you use to bend and notch?

    could I inquire what area of the country are you located? I'm east of Sandy Eggo, if you're near by any chance of seeing it up close and personal?

    Yup, looks like a good way to get yourself killed in a hurry...

    At least if I was at the controls!!!!

    Looks pretty cool.
    So you're telling me...You're not nostalgic? Then, give me another word for it......

    Default Actually...

    TC,

    Are you in the "city" or the "hills"? I'm from Webster Springs, I have some property near Holly River State Park.

    On the tube, what flavor do you use, HRW, DOM, 4130? What are you bending with?

    And what do you do for sand, I don't remember any in the area?
