Wait what? How have I never come across this info?
So the head tube is one piece with the lugs and there is effectively no brazing performed on the head tube? So then the head tube is never really a tube on its own, its just part of an intricate cast? Wow- mindblown. Is the casting process/design why in the pictures here, the lugs kiss where the frame pump peg is, even though the frame size is large enough for them to not kiss?
