but will that welding on the frame be smoothed? (the original factory welding on the dropout has a nice patron in the welding, the new welding....eeurh...is not so slick)
Hi the retrofit is fillet brazed, not welded. I am not sure if they are going to be smoothed more than what they already are. This is not an big issue for me - this is not a livingroombeautycontest bike - it will be ridden
This retrofit is more about modern functionality meet with the classiest most iconic frame of them all. The angles and overall dimensions are just perfect for fireroad and dirt roads.
modern steel frames are angleadjusted for front suspension, and they just doesent have the aggressive feel and handeling and specialy the above all other frames cornering feel. The FRO with Accu-trax forks is the best match ever. (I think)
