    shyiiit.

    so i was riding around when i noticed a weird noise
    i thought i busted by bearings in my hub or messed up my cranks and i get to inspecting my bike today and i noticed i broke my frame where my seattube meets the bb.



    now im pretty sure its only a matter of time when the down tube and seat stays fall apart,

    so whos got a 50- 53 cm bike/frame theyre looking to get rid of for cheap?

    Dang, I just got rid of a 50cm frame I would have given you for shipping. Sorry, I'll keep my eyes open around these parts. Even with some welds in there I dont think I would suggest riding that bike much, it looks pretty rusty around the break, so my money would be on questionable weld holding and failure imminent elsewhere in the frame.

    I'm no expert, but isn't it rare for a lug to break? If thats the case nice work my friend! Investment cast lugs are no match for this mans qauds.

    looks like the bottom bracket and lower seat tube were completely rusted-through.

    I snapped this 1983 Trek 560 a month ago when I got up out of the saddle. Trek warrantied it with a 2.3 alum/carbon road frame; nice upgrade, but no horizontal dropouts. I tried to talk them into a T1, but no dice.

    One benefit of riding an olde skool conversion: it's probably pretty damn easy to swap parts from one frame to another.
    It's bad when you're 19 and people consider you an "old geezer" in the current FG community.

    Be careful with that, the welder will most likely melt the braze that's already in place.

    i concur. i tried to fix a bum's bike that got broken up by some frat boys and ended up only making the break worse.

    ^^^ Buy this and give him $60 to ship it to you.

    Don't ride a broken frame, don't try to repair it.

    I would be impressed with the breakage except that the frame looks incredibly corroded.

    Time to upgrade.

    If you do weld it, it might be OK. I don't think you need to worry about the brazing in the joints since heating the lug will only draw the braze further into the joint. I'm not a frame builder, but I wouldn't worry too much. Make sure to leave the bottom bracket in if you do decide to do it so that the shell doesn't end up warped and stuff. I have a 52 cm schwinn world sport and a peugeot U-08 that could be yours cheap.

    Unless its French or really old American and you're swapping bottom brackets
