Ok so my 05 lava dome has a crack in the dropout, not sure how long its been like it
used as a 100mile a week comuter, but i do ride a few set of steps , 50cm drops to flat on it as well as off road xc stuff
its also used to tow the kids in the trailer to nursery
its always been stiff getting a wheel in, like the dropouts are a few mm too narrow, possibly the frame needed to be faced before the sliding dropouts installed?
anyway how easy is that gonna be to weld, would it require a frame builder to replace the dropouts?
crazy idea is to get them modified to accept 142x12 and 650b wheels??
