Don't think I have seen the frame crack in that area.

I put a set of digital calipers on the down tube on my 21 yesterday and today on a 22. I don't know where they thickened the tube or went larger on the 22 but it wasnt on the down tube. Good luck with getting the crack fixed. If they don't own it drill a small hole at both ends of the crack so it stops cracking, and any good welder can fix that right up. Dual Phase 980 tube at 1.85 OD doesn't have any wall thickness options from any US vendor but don't know where CA sources there steel.
They thickened the wall thickness in certain areas, not the entire frame.

That is 30 percent more.

By my calculation 1.8 MM Should be .070. Inch. That's pretty thin material.

Still better than the .055 thickness. LOL! Remember they use the fancy dual phase 980 which is suppose to be super strong so they can use thinner wall material. LMAO!!!

If they used .095 would it really add that much weight? I would take on extra weight to have .095 at least on the frame.
