    Lugged aluminum frame repair

    I just picked up a nice aluminum guerciotti with a 14 speed campy drivetrain and a bunch of other nice parts, but the seat tube lug has a couple fine cracks. These have yet to affect the integrity of the bike, but I would hate for these cracks to open up at 40 mph.....

    I guess the question is, can this be repaired? If not, are replacement lugs available?






    Thanks for looking

    These guys use to repair Vitus bonded aluminum frames. They might be able to help you out.
