Bad news. Powder coater is in the hospital and sounds like it may be a bit serious. On hold for a few weeks probably unfortunately but not all that important in the grand scheme of things.
Kind of selfish of him to go and get hospitalized at a time like this.

Back from the blasters. Bad news. Guys think some metal filler should do it but who knows. Would any of you guys be pulling the plug at this point or just go for it? Didn’t seem like there were any other affected areas and didn’t look too terribly bad in the metal shops opinion.

Those are spots where rust went through the metal.

Metal integrity would be a big concern for me.

I loved my '01 Poprad, but it was just industrial TIG welded 853 with crappy paint. Any repair would cost much more than the your frame was worth new. Be safe and move on.

bummer! I had the same thing on a Serotta MAX MTB frame years ago. It was a sad realization that it was destined for the recycling bin.

That sucks. Swap the tubes or even repair it probably will cost more than the frame IMO.

The question is, how bad the rust is inside of the stays? Probably are just bad rusted all over.

i found a thrashed brodie sovereign many years ago with quite a bit more damage than that on the ds chainstay, a result of chainsuck and corrosion. had it stripped and the chainstay filled by paul from the now defunct peyto cycles. i rode it for a year, which included a loaded, self-supported tour on the dempster highway, and never thought twice about the integrity of the fix. that was acute damage, whereas it looks like you've got interior corrosion that is compromising the tubes in a number of places. but, internet armchair speculation ftl; if it were me, and i didn't think the cs's looked to bad, i would proceed with the project
