This just doesn't seem right, but I did indeed have to pay to have the downtube replaced.
That's the wrong way to do a DT gusset, and a good example why!
The gusset wasn't the cause of the problem; the frontal impact was.If that was a pure tube failure i.e., materials or construction, you would only see a crack in the paint on the underside of the downtube.Instead, you see cracked paint on the top side of the downtube, which indicates a tube flex from a severe frontal impact.In this case I can fully agree with having the owner pay for the repair.
