Abstract: The theory of $ bo$-resolutions as utilized in The stable geometric dimension of vector bundles over real projective spaces did not give adequate care to the $ K{{\mathbf{Z}}_2}$'s occurring at each stage of the resolution. This restricts somewhat the set of integers $ e$ for which we can prove that the geometric dimension of vector bundles of order $ {2^e}$ on large real projective spaces is precisely $ 2\,e + \delta $.
