The end caps on this one are 6.3mm thick and milled out in the center. This makes the outer edges much tougher and can be ground/grinded without distorting.

I stuck a steel tubing insert in Todd's new fork to prevent bending, though his old butted fork had an Aluminum insert and still bent that much. This steerer is about 3mm to start with, so it should last longer than the fork legs.

The biggest benefit to these is the fact that they reduce any chance of rust, in a rust prone area. They also keep the cables a bit further from the top tube, so there isn't any housing scuff or annoying cable slap noise.
They aren't the best choice for hydraulic brakes or interrupted housing lines obviously.

3.75" rise bars because I like my bars way up there (better on the back) and 22.2mm because I can swap them out between bikes.

Two machines that have made work so much easier. The Baleigh manual bender makes repeatable bends and can bend very heavy duty tubes as well.
This little mill has two important features for coping. The first is an "R8" type spindle which uses collets that easily enable the use of 3/4" hole saw arbors. The second important feature is a motor with infinitely adjustable RPMs.
