Finished brazing up the fork, and now lunch.
The pins are sold as jigging pins but I'm sure they are farier nails.
If there is a disc specific fork crown lug I haven't seen it, but some lugs have more contact area than others, and would be more suitable, it's up to the builder to use thick blades and reinforcement
Personally I would think that an S&S MTB being ridden hard would last just as long as a non-coupled MTB, so long as the bike was made properly.
A tube with a coupler is meant to be stronger than a regular tube (according to S&S)
Tube will be filed flat, exits on the top of the crown

I'll be farked if I ever build a shed without insulation. Nothing worse than an excessively cold/hot workshop.

And that's all the brazing on the fork done,
Now comes cleanup on the frame, I got my media blaster yesterday morning so I am hoping I can have the frame bead blasted by tonight
Also the building is insulated, it is also huge
