frame lug question
I have an older steel frame thats lugged. its about 17 yrs old. anyway the guy i got it from trimmed the headtube down at the top and bottom maybe 1/4 inch each so the headset was lower. he raced on it for years after. i am building a single speed commuter trainer with it. should i have any worries about the strength etc. its is a high end race frame so it was made well.
no, not really as long as it was milled correctly and squarely. i had to do that to one of my old frames when i put a new headset on it and its stack height has taller than the old one so that the threads would engage on the steerer tube
He raced on it "for years after" and you are worried about low speed commuter duty?
