just posted over on the frame builders page but theres not much activity there right now.
i just noticed what i think might be a hairline crack...
on the lug where the seat tube joins the seat stay. there is no movement but i can feel the line of the crack on the inside too.
does anyone know what repair this would need and what the deterioration timeframe might be considering its ridden on the road. i know that this is hard to answer but a rough estimate somewhere between "do not ride" to "maybe a year" would be good. its a bridgestone keirin frame no dents or dings from about '95 i think. thanks.
its definitely a crack i just put the seat post back in and some grease got pushed through it. i feel sick.
