Yep!!..2" on a small RIb will look Pants,be overkill and add useless weight to the Transum....a 1-1/2" wins out and you'll Save a nice few quid too....incidentally a fair proportion of the price of an A-frame is in the polishing process after production(which is long and labour intensive) if you (like me) prefer a powder coated finish...its another way of saving on the cost

Looking at Chris Caton's photo and then compare it with mine it looks like CC's is 1.5" to my 2 "

I could be wrong though.

although it goes against the grain, I'd have to agree with you Steve, 35mm sounds about right to me
