    EXCELLENT.
    Very fair warning now; all those points are spot-on.

    That Sim Works (by Nitto, forged) post is probably one of the few posts that can take this drilling, and even then only done as carefully and precisely by experts as Alexidb has now explained above.

    Completely agree: NEVER do this on c-f, ti, or CNC alu components; those parts are already very highly engineered to reduce weight (some even have rider weight limits), etc., and the risk of causing structural failure by modding them is simply not worth it.

    @ Alexidb:
    Thank you very much for the understanding and for the consideration of others who may not have (especially on this non-cycling-specific forum) the same experience that you clearly have.
    Cheers and best regards.
