  • Ah lovely quarantine times!

    I came up with idea I would like to build a neo-retro CX and found retro alan frame. Great! Got the frame shipped within Europe, unpacked it and VUALIA - a crack in the seatpost collar.

    Any thoughts on what should I do?

    1. Return it. It was advertised as "dirty only".
    2. Weld it - the crack is in the lug, not the tube - I contacted local LBS and they suggest that it would be safe to ride. Seller pays fees and probably a part of the cost of the frame.

    Which direction I should go?
