More evidence that bridges that aren't tubes suck.

^ Word. Tubing thickness of two soda cans welded to a bridge as thick as the sharp end of a pencil is no good.  Can just tell from all the broken pictures that the heat is just too much, the only thing holding the front of the plate together is the seatpost/seat stay junction.

sorry to say that but welcome to the club. this exactly spot is the place where all my frames cracked no mather what kind of bridges all the frames had.... imo thicker tubing and tube bridges are the solution for this problem.
