Nah, that's not a raise. Looks like it's been repaired at the seat tube junction. Someone who isn't a midget thought they'd ride it with the post up high and cracked it.

Apologies, topic is off on a tangent, but are you sure it is a repair?

Assuming you are referring to the weld line across the seat tube just below seat stays junction.
Please note the top tube to seat tube weld bead is over the "repair line". Serious job then.

Not my size anyway ;)

Enjoy!!

No, I'm not sure it is a repair (on the Kish) but I can't think of any other reason for that weld to be there, and the seller only shows one side...

Funk frames are welded there, too, and also the glorious Fat Cahnce Ti Fat is. I guess it's a way to reduce the seat tube.
See this thread, last page, last pic
