Crack in vintage Colnago dropout - can it be repaired?
On the right rear dropout, just aft of the chainstay joint, my old Colnago Super has developed a crack. Looking closely, under a respray job, I think there was a previous repair. The crack is on one side only, outer side, does not go through, and does not move or flex. I can ride the bike, but obviously can't live with this.
Can this be mig welded or does one have to rebraze?
Thanks for any advice. Many have dealt with this type of question before on this forum, I'm sure.
