repairing an aluminum Pinarello Galileo frame
My father asked me to post this.
he crashed his Pinarello Galileo and cracked the aluminum, behind the seat tube.
is it possible to repair this?
I don't work with aluminum, but my understanding is that you aren't going to want to pay what it's going to cost to fix that, unfortunately. Am I right that there is carbon near the crack? Aluminum needs to be heat treated after welding.
indeed, there is carbon near the aluminum crack.
