My friend has 2 frames, an Eastern Dragon and an S&M LAF (cracked). I'd be able to get either one in a trade. He said his dad would be able to weld the S&M, but I'm leaning towards the eastern as I don't want a weak spot on my frame. Thoughts?

Haha, I'm going with the eastern. The frame is for a back up bike anyway.

this. i dont understand why people would go for a cracked one if they have the option to not. like if you can get a perfectly fine frame why go for one thats goin to have a full weak spot on it.

I've raced a few cracked frames, but I cracked them and they were tig welded by a guy that builds drag car chassis. An expert welder that welds everyday.
You made the right call. Is that paint or tape?

It was originally black, but someone put in a ton of time and effort to tape off each individual square, and it was then painted pink, resulting in its current pattern

Just out of curiosity. S&M Frames are supposed to have legendary quality but it seems like cracking them is a common occurrence. I know LZ has a video where his S&M cracks as well.
I don't know much on the subject so I'm asking those who do... what other frames are known for cracking often or have you cracked a frame? If so, what was it and how?
I'm very interested to know as I've been reading a lot about different frame construction methods and material options etc and am interested to see how they work (or fail) when applied. Not here to talk shit about companies, just to learn more on the subject. smile
