The choice, for or against, to do a fillet frame has nothing to do with strength. That either style of joining has added strength about the HT ends is the issue.

But bikingman isn't correct in his seeing both lugs and rings on the same frame (or in the same photo). The un finished frame has fillet joints and reinforcing rings. The blue frame is lugged. Am I not writing well enough to describe what the photos show? Andy
