I've been advised to repost in this forum:
I've recently heard of two decent quality older steel frames with a broken rear dropout or derailleur hanger broken off. Is this fixable? If so how should it be fixed and what would be a reasonable cost?
I'm assuming the damaged dropout would have to be cut off and a new one welded or brazed into place (obviously I'm no welder and dont plan to do this myself).
I'm in Raleigh, NC. Anyone know a good builder near me? I travel a bit so I'd be interested in good builders in SC and VA.
