    Sparkin it up on a rainy day............

    One of my favorite things to do is chop up frames so they can be better than before...........here I have a frame that had a fatally bent hanger and so the drop outs had to go. Now that frame is destined for many more miles of hard Pisgah fun............

    Is brazing really a strong enough weld for a bicycle?

    A GREAT question that I've put a lot of thought into..............short answer, Yes!
    Long answer.......As long as it's done correctly (aka......skill), the heat affected zone of the metal is kept to a minimum thus resulting in a very sound union of the two pieces without changing the metal matrix. The other process (TIG) has great merit too, but that should be addressed by someone else with great skill (rhymes with pickel), who does very awesome work.
