Weird weldings - bulges on my Lombardo

Hi, forum!

I've just bought this bike - Lombardo f-cross 700.
It has very good specs for its price. But I'm little worried about the frame. What do you think about weldings - bulges between top and low tube?I've never seen something like that. Bike is also VERY heavy 14.9 kg. Does this mean that the frame is cheap?

I'm planning to use this bike for loaded touring, so I have to be sure it takes some weight.

Never heard of them. Why would you buy a bike with a frame that you were worried about?
What bulges are you talking about BTW. How about loading a pic of your actual bike, and not one from the distributer's site.
Sorry if you are genuine, but your thread looks an awful lot like you're shilling.

Can you actually take a pic of your bike and in particular, a close up of the welds / bulges you are concerned with.
