Default Re: Welding on Big box store bikes?

Are you planning on using wire or stick? I would use wire if possible on the lowest setting. Maybe consider putting the disc and caliper on the left side of the fork. May not make much difference, but the force will pushing against the fork and weld instead of pulling away from it. Should be no problem. I've welded all over my bike frames and never had any bad experiences other than blowing through the frame and having to come back and fill in the hole.
Caution! I give opinions as if they were worth something. Use at your own risk.
