The Metal Boot is trangulated so my geuss is its even sturdy enoung to rotate the bike on, when you need to change direction on a track that has not got enough safe space to mak a u turn or stitch change.
Thanks Rema! Anyone have direct experience with this plate? I'm not having any luck finding install diagrams. It would be nice if it required less than 8 fiddly bolts to change the oil.
