Hi: LarryandLiz... My understanding is that Reace consolidated his frame shop and others last time they moved to the new facilities. Alf

Hi: jrn56... Reace has estimated about 1/2 hour to install the "Fish plates". A good welder probably less time. Prep grind and a fiberglass shield are necessary... Then a paint to finish. Alf

I believe all the frames listed are susceptible to this.

The '76 Trillium I am rebuilding was affected by a very similar recall, and it had not been done by a the two previous owners, probably totally unaware of it. The frame showed absolutely no sign of fatigue in any way. Still, I put the recommended mending plates on, cheap assurance.

Especially seeing Escape's intentions were never to try to pull one over on anyone.

Ahh, somehow, just knew it. Let the bouncing begin. It's all over for me, even the shouting.
