So I heard all of this buzz about how long pointed lugs
on the underside of the down tube concentrate stress and
in rare instances lead to failure. So I took my bike
and filed down the lug on the underside of the down tube
to be very thin around the stress concentrating point--
and then sanded it. Anyway--I am an amateur at this sort
of thing but I enjoy this frame so I thought I would file down the lug.
I doubt in this instance, per the frame builder's description of the butting
and strength--that it would fail--this is mostly an aesthetic issue.
But here ya go. Thoughts comments, critique
