I was cleaning some dirt off my frame yesterday and noticed that my seat stay bridge was snapped in three places. It is like an H shape if you could imagine and its hanging on by one of those I's of the H because the other three snapped of and its hanging off the frame. My question is how important is the bridge should I ride it, Weld it or What? Also there are two small cracks on the seat stay next to it really small? sorry for no pics my phone is broken.

You say BMX is your life but you barely ride.
BUT hey, That's none of my business.

I would get a small sheet of steel (chromoly if possible) and cut it out to the shape of the bridge and weld it to the bridge/seat stays.

My friend had one lol. He rolled down an 8ft roll-in pretty fast to hit a box jump and as soon as he got to the bottom it snapped into 3 pieces. Give me your IG so I can tag you in the video haha

The bridge won't affect much but if your seatstays are cracked then that's where problems occur
