Re: A tie-rod that is supposed to bend?
I went the opposite direction with mine.
I built mine so high up that its nearly impossible to get to it, the built it from Cromemolly which has nearly zero deflection. Something about that much bend just doesnt look right. It seems like while it was on the rock like that if you did need to turn that it would just tweak everything including the tie rod. I wouldnt want to be the 1st guy to have to try it out on an extreme trail, but itll be interesting too see how well it works with some real trail testing over time.
If at 1st you dont succeed, your replacement will try and try again
