I've been meaning to post this image for ages, so if it does actually work what do you think?
There was a nasty crack around the head tube junction so this brace was welded on at a local welding shop..
Looks sensible, no doubt we'll hear if it breaks again!
That is one nice repair. Top class welding, & not easy on alloy.
What's the question anyway ?
If its would you ride it then probably yes.
Worst possible place to weld a gusset.
Nice welding though!
The frame in question has had some severe abuse in its time (not by me!) I don't think it was ever designed to big air/20ft drops tbh.
I was impressed with the workmanship as the welding was a) better than the original! b) done while you wait for a massive £10. fee by a local firm. Class.
Brant, if my Ti456 cracks again i'll consult you on precise gusset placement and get it done locally rather than wait 6-8 months while it goes back to Lynskey
£10 for welding like that! Get them to build you a whole frame.
Thats brilliant! you ask for STW eingineers opinions and when you get a proper one you slag them off Hilarious! I Love STW :lol:
@haggis-interesting interpretation. I was showing an interesting (to me) bike related image of a nice cheap repair to any interested parties.
When i said 'STW engineers' i did'nt mean a proper one, more the pretend ones you get on here!
Btw i was'nt slagging him at all, but i was teed-up so beautifully how could i resist!
For the record of the 4 bikes in this house 3 are designed by Brant and Dave at PX dealt with my warranty brilliantly at the time.
more like this would be better
"Thats brilliant! you ask for STW eingineers opinions and when you get a proper one you slag them off Hilarious! I Love STW "
I've read the thread twice now and i can't see any engineers being slagged off:-)
Maybe not slagging him off but certainly the way his warranty repairs are handled over 6 months. Thats seems a bit cheeky to me but still funny
