Some background info: About a year ago, I got a steel 700c road frame from a friend that moved out of the country. it's got Ritchey carbon forks, & a Chris King NoThreadSet. The frame requires Braze-On front derailleur and down-tube shifters...but I've been thinking of making it a Fixie. I'm definitely a Clydesdale, since I'm 6'2" & 270lb, but this bike will not be ridden nearly as much as my other bikes. I'm guessing only 20-40 miles a month at most. The frame is a "Hedgehog Roadhog" - never heard of it, and Google wouldn't give me any results, either.
Anyways, it's got a small crack on the bottom-side of the downtube, just below the headtube. Previous owner scraped a little bit of the paint away to verify that the crack wasn't just a crack in the paint...and of course told me about all this before selling the frame to me.
Should I ride it till it brakes?
Should I have someone weld the crack and extend the life a little?
Should I try to sell the frame for cheap?
Or should I just scrap it and keep the fork & headset for another build?
