Default minor update

Framework has progressed thanks to a good friend of mine.

Seems like a common problem for early Easton Pro-Gram frames to develop cracks regardless of manufacturer, not sure why. My frame had a crack that ran from the slot on the backside of the seat tube which continued about 1/4" forward just above the seat stay weld (I was aware of a crack before I purchased the frame). After discussed this with a machinist friend over a fine Northwest Micro he said no problem, the attached is the result. Crack repaired with a nice fat weld.

Only other frame issue is the extraction of a broken screw on the replaceable dropout. Not sure how to get that out just yet.......

In any case I hope to move forward soon.
