MartinClan is on a distinguished road

Having considered a few options for the wing stays I finally decided to make my own. I wanted a design that was light and stiff. didn't require any welding (in my experience welding is nearly always the weak spot of any wing stay), was easlily adjustable and didn't cost a fortune.

After a lot of head scratching I came up with this. It fulfills most of he requirements! There is a tiny amount of "woibble", but far less than the Marlin and it cost less than a tenner!
