Re: Frame failure
I posted the Failure on the Panama Jack. It's funny you post with this question. I just went to wally world and bought a CrankBrook to build my just recently rebuilt engine for my other Schwinn.
The CrankBrook is not aluminum. It is a steel/chromoly frame. It should not have any of the isssuse of the aluiminum frame I had.
Keep in mind, I am a large person,,, and that surly played a part in the aluminum frame failure.
Like you said, just keep looking the frame over for your own safety and maitenance needs. You should be just fine.
I'm heading out to the shop (garage) to build my CrankBrook.
Watching my kids enjoy what they have learned and built, is why we started MB'ing
