Cutdown Bennett

Spent the afternoon cutting down a Bennett down to 99.6mm by first facing the hangers and then recessing a small shoulder on to each side to eliminate the need for speed rings.

I bolted a wheel on once I was done and am sure that even just in my hands it feels like the wheel is just stiffer. I had the axle nut locked and yet the wheels spun far smoother. Maybe its all just in my head but I guess I will only find out tomorrow when I finish the other one and go for a test ride!

Limpy the truck

I did not have enough time tonight but over the next few days I should be able to finish slimming this Bennett down to around 100mm
