    Any Hobbiest Framebuilders in Central Texas

    I acquired a Surly Long Haul Trucker that somebody decided to start cutting up. They got halfway thru the top tube by the seat tube and decided to give up. What is the chances that somebody can repair such a cut? I am in Central Texas (Austin area) and prefer to not ship - the bike isnt that valuable to me. I just want to build up a gravel grinder.

    Should be no problem for a local welder.

    If you've never been to FrankenBike Austin you should go check it out; great group of people. I bet if you go hang out at the next one and ask around you could either get the name of a good welder, or find someone who builds bikes and can work a deal right there.

    I've been away from a TIG for a while, although just picked one up. A local welder would be a great choice to stitch that back up, but if you want to put a new top tube in I could jig it up and tack it for you. I'm a couple hours away, but we may be able to coordinate with some people coming/going to move it around for us.
