Chain Stay and Rear Brake Bridge Placement

Hi Brent.

I can not find way to place the chain stay or rear brake bridges on either the main or auxiliary stay display. I would like to sdisplay the distance from the centre of the bridges to the centre of the rear axle so I can work out the relationship between fender placement, outer tire diameter, brake reach and the rim.

Thanks,
Evan

The chain stay bridge is controlled at the bottom of the chain stay dialog box. Note that chain stay bridges will only be available for non-wishbone stays. One of the inputs allows you to enter the distance from the rear axle to the center of the bridge. If the bridge has a brake hole, then the bridge is located by the distance from the rear axle to the outer face of the brake hole, not the center of the bridge. Seat stay bridges are similarly controlled through input fields at the bottom of the seat stay dialog box.

Evan, I noticed that you have just registered an account on the BikeCAD.ca website. Since you purchased BikeCAD Pro from the old website, your new account did not initially identify you as a customer. However, I have manually changed your status to BikeCAD Pro owner and have granted you access to download the latest version of BikeCAD Pro. If you don't already have it, you can download it as per the instructions here. I invite all other BikeCAD customers who do not yet have accounts on the BikeCAD.ca site to register for an account today. Let me know when you've done so and I will give you access to download the latest version of BikeCAD Pro. I also recommend filling out your profile to promote your business as described here.

Doh! I've been happily puttering away in version 7.11 in blissful ignorance until the fender fit issue came up. Everything the doctor order is there in 8.1 plus a lot more. Keep up the great work and thanks again for the super fast response!
