Black ABS Tool Tube
Wisconsin Building Codes forbid the use of black ABS pipe supposedly due to the gas it releases if your house were to catch fire. Only white PVC tubing is available. So, from all of the box stores to real plumbing stores that I've checked, it can't be purchased locally.
From what I've read, the ABS is stronger (read: less brittle) and would certainly look better on my black KLR than white and no, I don't want to paint the white PVC tube black.
For those of you that have used the ABS tool tubes, how are they holding up? What was the final cost of the tool tube (4" dia. tube roughly 20" - 24" long with cap glued on one end and rubber sealed test plug with wing nut on other end)?
I'd like to free up some room in my pannier and shift some of the weight forward.
