Re: TriQ Nose leg query
If it helps I mounted my nose gear so that the front on the gear has at least 1 degree forward so the bottom is forward. That keeps the gear from developing a shimmy. It should be built in but is worth checking.Brucetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text

For your nose gear mounting the 1/4" should be fine as long as the tube follows the contour of the canard. I can send you a picture if it would help. the loads push the tube downward and not up into the canard.
