The plans do not call for the carbon fiber strip to run the full span. The wing joiner tube should be more than adequate to support inboard section. There are light ply doublers on the ribs through which it passes. I'm also using a carbon fiber wing joiner which is far stronger than the cf strip.

Actually, the strip I put on is longer that the plans call for. They show ten inches from where you see it start in the photo. It overlaps the joiner tube by about 3 inches. I just used the length of the strip I have which is 24." Practically no weight to this stuff anyway. There will be a strip on the bottom spar too.

These together with the shear webbing should make the wing plenty strong!
