Re: Welding Broken Tip Over Bar Tab
It is what it is, an older design. I have been thinking about it for a few days and many times when you strengthen something like that tab attachment point the forces just look for another place to cause havoc. A stronger tab might chunk out the frame. As you say, some way to share the forces around. I have had two sliding crashes at speeds less than 40 mph on my K bike with no bars and let me tell you, the cost is amazing, and that is just for parts. Good that you got it fixed, no way one cal let that total a good bike.
