« on: October 28, 2015, 08:56:46 AM »
I was looking at my new frame and since it's painted black I can't see the welds completely. After watching that new mike laird video it got me thinking about the different frames that failed on me at the welds and was wondering if my new frame had good welding on it. When I look down the seat tube, I can see rust forming on the inside wall in the shape of where the welds are for the right seat stay and the left side of the top tube. I was wondering why the rust only started on those welds and not the others, and was wondering if that was a sign of burnt welds. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
What kind of frame is it? Also, what area do you live in? Im in STL so it's always humid and you will get surface rust on a bare piece of metal after 30 seconds of it being raw haha. Your best bet would to be other people with your frame in raw or clear and check out the welds on their frame. Don't use pics from the manufacters website as it is probably like mcdonalds, using the best one for pics. Good luck!

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes album Blossom is pretty awesome. If you liked the first Gallows album you'll probably love it.

I got the latest Kendrick album after seeing him smash it at Reading and thought apart from a few standout tracks (King Kunta, Alright, i and a few others) it's pretty overrated from all the hype I've read about it online.
I wanna love it as I love Gallows but maaaaaaaaaaan to step out of gallows and say "hate" is a bad thing and start that super shitty band turned me off frank haha. Also minus cool points for his name being in the bands name.

I like metallically (is that even a word haha) hardcore, metalcore, some pop etc

if you're bored and like older street punk/80s hardcore you can check out my band. This is our ep from last year and our lp is out this december via collision course records

I've tried almost every pad known to man and I am currently on boxx x-rays and am super happy. Kind of an investment at $22 but you can replace just the pad for like $8 later down the road.

Very enjoyable video. Black Flag bridge is definitely awesome.

Browsed his site and it definitely seems like he knows what he's talking about and not throwing out some gimmicky terms that people sometimes like to do. Plus $450 doesn't seem to steep when it's custom and you get to have your own seat stay bridge design.
Exactly, people call him cocky or full of himself but I'd rather have someone confident welding my frame. I went that route because even powedercoated which holds up awesome and shipping it was $520 to my front door. This is actually my second frame by him as my forst one was a little too long

Really cool insight to his process and I can still say that these frames are awesome. Highly recommended. I kinda want to raw my frame now after seeing it raw haha.

I didn't realize the PMA had the bottle opener in the front.

I'm still looking for one of the original ones in black.
Yea saw it on IG a week ago and had to preorder but they were already out of black
