“Well, I went back through 3 years of JH's posts........”.
Lannis, you and I don’t agree........nothing new there.
Actually, we DO agree. It's not a "fight" about the efficacy of rim locks. You use rim locks religiously on your British rims for reasons of safety and security, and I agree that you ought to do that. No argument there.
I'm trying to figure out the basis for the safety and security, and it's not really you (I suppose) that I'm asking - it's the crew as a whole, or anyone who's reading. The question was that IF they're good things, why they're not generally used. I still think it's a good question, and I've never seen an answer.
That's OK, no one has to answer it. But not every thread has to end with a hug. It can end with a "Hmmmm....." and that's still good!
