Crashed cross check brazing practice, next step?
so I just got a crashed cross check from a friend. The seat stays are bent down at the canti bosses. So I want to fix it while also getting some practice. What is the best course of action? I was thinking cutting of the stays but leaving a bit to use as makeshift lugs my other idea was to cut the stays fully off grind the seat tube and bb shell clean and fillet braze a new triangle on. Are either of the possible? Is one a better option than the other? Thanks!
