Default Re: Welding on Big box store bikes?

I am hearing cheap, thin, not heat treated steel.

Maybe not the best choice for a disk brake mount.

Welding the cheap, thin, not heat treated tubing will not make it stronger and there could be huge stress on the welded mount depending on how hard you hit the brake.

I would change out that fork with a nice one set up for a disk brake.
