Stay and fork vent holes necessary?
I have fretted over this for years. Back in the late 1970's I build 15 silver brazed Reynolds 531 frames and forks. I didn't drill vent holes in the seat stays of fork blades in any of them. The main reason was conern that water from wet roads could get inside and cause rust.
Is there a definite reason for vent holes other than making it easier to braze?
