I just picked up a large sized Melton frame and fork made of True Temper tubing. The frame is regular lug construction except the seat tube and down tube have been enlarged and place over the lug. These junctions are then filet brazed.

Was this a common way of making a stiffer frame? Just curious since this was the first time I had seen this. Jeff Archer First Flight Bicycles 216 S. Center St. Statesville, NC 28677 704.878.9689 Phone 704.878.9683 FAX jeff@firstflightbikes.com http://www.firstflightbikes.com
