Last night I discovered a nice little crack running along the lower head lug on my Casati Gold Line.
I'm going back to Santa Cruz on Wednesday and know a few framebuilders there who I could talk to about repair, but I don't think it'll be cheap. I'm almost tempted to start hunting for a new frame (but save the Casati for something later). Am I crazy? Either way it'll be expensive, and I'm running on a really tight budget these days, so anything drastic may have to wait until much later (February/March, when I actually have a job again).
I felt some chattering on my last ride, but I just assumed it was the headset (it's pitted). Could it be this crack?
