    Nice bracing @kipo
    Do you reckon the gusset under the downtube pushed force back and cracked it ?

    It cracked 2 rides ago so I had the below brace done but it broke again last year. It's the main down tube that breaks. I did think that a solid bar pushed up from under the mudguard into the frame tube would do the best job but there is a ridge in there that prevents that idea.

    Maybe a hinge in there would be good.
    add a shocky from a mountain bike and youve got a triple suspended postie.

    Everyone will want one.

    Had a couple of bits left over, but I don't think they are important

    My old mate the "2 Stroke Frog" is along for the ride again this year.
