    Any east valley aliminum welders? (solved)

    If this isnt appropriate for this forum i apologize, mods, feel free to delete it, im just out of options.

    I broke my 2009 GT Sanction rear triangle. I've read in here that fixing it is going to cost more than just replacing it, and it wont be as strong, but the wall i run up against is that GT doesnt cary the triangle, nor can i find it online anywhere. My wife is having our first kid this month so buying a bike right now is out of the question...
    anyone know of an aliminum welder that would be able to help out?

    I am willing to trade Computer repair services, or shoot, i even have a decent computer ill trade for it, but money is super tight right now. anyone got anything?

    I got an old norco manik freeride hardtail frame you can borrow till After the kid stops stealing your $$$. All your parts should swap over. Instead of relying on a re- welded frame. I've repaired on and it broke in short order. The HT will keep ya riding and has held up to Somo gnar...

    This isn't west valley (Deer Valley Airport area) but they repaired my frame several months ago and did a good job. Worth a call. American Motorsports. 623-236-3628

    crap. i think i meant to say east valley. haha.
    bob, thank you! i have a hardtail frame, ive been using it and loving it, transfered most of my stuff over, but the problem is the wheels are pretty XC. i bent the rear wheel pretty good today just out riding k-trail. Im tonna try my hand at truing them when i get off work. My burly wheels from the sanction are through-axle, so i cant just swap them onto the hardtail. :/

    if i had a solid set of quick release wheels my komodo would probably do just fine on national at least. problem is, im not allowed to spend money for a while. if the wife found out i spent more money on bikes before buying more paint for the house id be a dead man.

    I broke the frame on my 29er and had these guys weld it. Good as new and reasonable price.

    or

    Hope they don't mind I post their #. I'm assuming they would like the work.

    This guy isn't in the east valley but it'll be worth the trip to the 51/Camelback area. He does a great job for about $50/hr.
