Default It's dejavu all over again.

Well my frame broke again, this time the downtube cracked right at the motor mount. Now before anyone says it was because I drilled my frame and put screws in my motor mount strap, the frame cracked from the top down. I think it may have been cracked when I did the rear suspension I just didn't notice it. The bottom of the crack near the screw is all bright metal and everywhere else is dull.

A little bit of serendipity though, when it cracked the frame spread about 3" and now the bike sits at a much more comfortable height so I'm piecing in a section of tube with sleeves. Couldn't do any more work tonight because I need a second person to sit on the bike so I can get the sleeves in and the patch tube.
