Im so lucky I picked this up before going out for another fang.
This could have killed me!!

Anyways so I just bought another frame which is the same size, just going to weld a gusset in each corner for some added stength and maybe weld in some strengthening at the rear wheel fixing point.
Oh man real sorry to hear Breno! You may have just gotton a fluke.
Is this frame aluminum? I do get to wondering about the average department store type bike these days? They'll say on the bike tags that it is a alloy type metal. My personal complaint is that the tubing is often too thin walled. i also wounder how consistent the mix is in the melting pot so to speak in places where these come from like China and Taiwan?
Still gotta have a since of humor.
