Default Re: It's dejavu all over again.

I'm not one to discourage the DIYer... but I am also concerned that that bike's frame may well be fatigued or simply an inferior alloy as it's broken not once, but twice & in two completely different places and load areas...

It's a similar concern with car frame repair - rust, NP... but cracks & breaks are a sure sign of fatigue and most reputable shops won't touch 'em because no matter how nice the repair work it'll just break somewhere else.

Ya prolly know alla this & it's your hide so ofc ya can do w/e you wish... I jus' figured I'd mention my worry
