Anyone know weight rating for “poop pipe” container?
Simplest solution would be to wait until the warranty runs out, then have a =good= welding shop add a completely new rear tube and any extra bracing / plating to support whatever load you want to carry. On my old Komfort, my shop found a tube that was much heavier but was the same OD as the old tube. Welded it onto the existing frame extensions and was able to re-rivet the polished aluminum sleeve over it, which was nice. Because the ID was smaller, none of my stinky hoses would fit inside, which I didn't care about since I carry them looped together in a milk crate. Oh, the reason I added the new bumper was to be able to put a 2" receiver on the back for a bike rack, though the shop said I'd be good to 200 lbs if I did want to put a rack on it. Funny, though; the LCI rack on my KZ, which is anchored to both frame rails, is only rated to 200 lbs. I guess LCI doesn't trust their own construction to give such a beefy-looking rack such an anemic rating. :-/
