Friction is our enemy, so I'm using the Lignum Vitae I got from our friends over at North Heigham Sawmills to bear the brunt of it all.
This snap shows the magical timber being machined and glued in to the hub locations on the front wheel and forks. If it proves successful (it better had because I have no plan B) then I can move on to other more complex areas of friction - of which there are many, perhaps too many?
Tomorrow will reveal whether or not it has worked...
