All welding operations have ceased for now. 3 gussets, 2 at the top of my unconventional seat stays and 1 at the top of the seat tube have been welded into place and then bathed in Kevlar laced fiberglass using my middle finger. I think I'd have to run over an I.E.D. to do any real damage at this pont.
The best thing about welding bike tubes together is actually when you are done welding them altogether. LOL
