I built the frame of pipes in April 2016, and somehow it held for one year. With only a few repairs I rode it over 1500 km until it broke in Tabor Creek. It was frustrating since I don’t have any financial support for the project. The solution came through a friend of a friend that happens to work at https://www.metzer-group.com . Pipes are their business, and they are truly experts. With a lot of patience, they took me around their place to find the right pipes. We found some of the leftovers that fit like a glove to the frame. These leftover pipes cover the weak connections between the pipes we had. Metzerplast people worked their lathe with endless patience to fix the aluminum pipe and the screws that broke. That was incredible, and all for free.
