Unless of course stomping up hills in big gears like I used to do is considered abuse. So I'm grumpy about it...I may try a spot of weld there after digging out the crack. I have a friend who is one of the best welders on the West coast, and I'll bet we can get it without wrecking the alignment. Does anyone know if these are heat treated? I presume not or they would have been advertised as such. Stevan Thomas Alameda, CA
