Re: Snapped my frame

I would post a picture here but A, i have no idea how and B i think you need someone to "host" the pictures, which i do not have.

Re: Snapped my frame

Yes that can be welded, you just need to find a good Tig welding shop. The frame is chrome-molybdenum steel and requires a particular welding rod.

Some one who knows a lot more about welding this material will have to step in here and give you more details.

Regards,

Joe

Re: Snapped my frame

agree with joe. that is a lack of welding fromn the factory. easy weld IMHO. however if you decide, for whatever reason, NOT to weld it - please PM me as i'd be interested.

Re: Snapped my frame

I think the way to go would be to source similar cromoly tubing with the O.D. near the same size as the frame inner diameter. Use it as a repair sleeve. 2 inches should do. Cut the frame all the way through and insert the sleeve (This may be the hard part). Drill a few small plug weld holes in the frame to hold the sleeve in place. Leave a small gap and weld the frame together solid penetrating into the sleeve.

The above is a general recommendation. I would have a certified welder do the procedure with a TIG welder as Joe described.

When discussing it with a 'Berg dealer as it was a warranty claim from memory it turned out that it was not an isolated incident although not common.
I've just noticed a crack in the paint in this exact location on my own bike... Damn.. Should I check more thoroughly?

I'll get a picture
