    Cracked Frame ( Re Welding )

    Hey sup guys. I have a question about my frame. I ride BMX. And I notice a crack on my top tube near the head tube, around the weld. Look at the pictures. I'm asking a question to a person who knows about welding and stuff. I believe its 100% chromoly. If someone re welded that crack, will it be safe? will it be as strong as before? is there more of a chance that it might crack again. Anyone with welding experience and just knowladge on welding cracks.

    you can re-weld that crack...use an er80es rod ,tig weld process, if you were in dallas I would fix it for you.....if you are hard on this bike you might want whoever welds it to weld crack then put a saddle over welded area .make sure saddle has a v shape with point running down top of frame tig this saddle wont have anymore problems till the next weakest area shows up...

    if done right welding is amazing, strong as can be. whenever i weld anything i always hit it with a 10pd sledge hammer hard as i can to make sure it will hold.
