Fillet brazed track framesets?

I know there arent many lugged track framesets, but are there any fillet brazed ones that aren't custom?

Why fillet brazed, rather than TIG welded? Seriously. What possible advantage is there to fillet (other than to make something crazy custom)?

Livery is coming out with fillet-brazed track frames.

They've built some tarck bikes, but they're also trying new things.

welding is a much hotter process than fillet brazing, which leaves a larger heat affected area (where the steel is weaker)

really though it's about sexy as hell joints.


as far as peloton, i don't know what year mine is. i've seen that he does build lugged frames, but apparently he specializes in fillet brazing. they go for pretty low money too since they're not one of the real well known japanese builders.
