Although this refers to an aircraft structutal failure, there are similarities between the closed hollow steel wing lift strut that failed inflight, and bicycle frame tubing. Examination of the failed strut gives some insight into internal corrosion and the protection afforded by anti-corrosion treatment. Interesting.
