    Disaster!

    Putting new cranks on my ride only to find a decent crack on the underside of the chain stay.
    Now on the look out for a 54cm track frame.
    Pretty annoyed, but also glad that I found it now, and not when I'm lying on the tarmac.

    I'm guessing that's probably easier for you to do though.

    It's Dylan Time! <--- sometimes NSFW. Seriously. It's getting nicer, but there's still loads of nudity.

    I'd sooner want to get it repaired.

    Can anyone give me a ballpark figure I'd be looking at to get it done?

    Just gave them a call.

    Given the description, he said the best solution is to weld it back together rather than replace the stay.
    He said once repaired it should be very robust, and no durability issues. over the phone quote came to $60. Looks like that's the avenue I'll be taking.

    Cheers guys.

    pity it's gonna ruin that sweet paintjob though :-\
    oh. i was thinking like Smorgys only 100 times bigger.
    dildos that actually look like wangs are kinda expensive
    You're all hopped up on goofballs
    I'm sure there are forums dedicated to the world's shittest youtube vids. Fortunately, this is not one of them.
    that's kinda like sleeping with your best friend's wife, then asking him to wipe your dick afterwards
    you revived a 4 month old thread to say you love ball sacks?
    So how do I machine a sidewall? Do I use a hammer and a chisel, or do I pour acid all over my rims?
    Self delusion and garlic bread.
    Giving people grief is all I have left. Why would you take that away?
    I tried to make champagne with a Soda Stream once. Ended up painting the ceiling with goon and blinding 3 of my friends.
    The hate's so chunky you could carve it...
    I heard he burns children in his forge and puts the soul of a child into each frame
    Son, you gotta feed the horse before you leave the club
    This should feel like my gooch is being suspended on the feathers of archangels...
    apart from the above, i'm pretty much a piece of shit.
    I was warned about all you assholes

    Yeah I'm devastated that the fine aesthetics are going to be tainted.
    On closer inspection it looks like the stay is a bit rusted.. I'll leave it up to the guys at Paconi to decide if it can be rescued, but I'm starting to feel skeptical.

    Yer it seems to be an easy fix, just curious though, do many of the guys here use Grip Sports for frames repairs, or is Paconi a prefered place for track frames?
