We just took in a fillet brazed Jack Taylor last week for a new top tube . We're putting in the new tube this coming week. Keep in touch; I'll le t you know how it goes.

You won't know if the frame is aligned or not unless someone checks that out properly. If it's straight ir could very well be OK to ride it as i s. Depends on how bad it all is.

I just found a 70's fillet brazed Condor. The frame is in excellent cond iti on other than having a nickel sized dent in the downtube and, more impor tan tly, a subtle crimp under the down tube and top tube just behind the hea d t ube. I would guess this was the result of riding into something head-on.

My LBS says the frame is straight and should ride normal.

What do you guys think - should I have it repaired, or just ride it?

This is the first Condor I've seen in person/owned. It's a simple, but c las sy looking frame. I'm just wondering are these frames valuable enough fo r m e to invest in the repair. And if so, who I should have do the repair.

Thanks, Nathan Cozzolino SF, CA
