HPN reinforce that part of the frame buy adding another frame tube - to form a larger tiangled section towards the rear of the bike,

Runs from the rear part of the rear rack towards the bottom frame attachment point - near the swing arm pivot point.

This will not cause other parts of the frame to brake earlier than they other wise would.

--- From the photo - the frame gusset has been broken for some time - rusty. The frame tube is recent - no rust. Perhaps others can use this as a test for frame failure?
