No but I saw a bum split another bums head in half with an axe, like a pumpkin, during a bum fight.

Yes. It's a frame like all others. Often beautifully crafted - and just as, if not more, fragile

NJS frames aren't necessarily "fragile" but you need to keep in mind they are designed to be ridden by 110 lb. Japanese Keirin racers on pristine velodrome surfaces - not for chubby American millennials bombing around crappy city streets.

Keirin racers are not 110 pounds. not successful ones anyway.

Also, every frame will fail if you ride it enough. A competent frame builder can fix an NJS frame usually. But if you wanna beat a bike up, i wouldn't buy one.

Scrod, unless you rape babies or kill pet cats so you can smoke their ashes in your bong or trip blind people etc etc, you are most definitely uphill of FABEL!

Let me reiterate.

I was wondering if anyone has owned an njs frameset with an obligatory race dent which led to the subsequent premature death of the frame.

People who ask a vague question on the internet then follow up by reiterating with another vague question.

You're providing no details about what tube the dent is on and how serious it is, yet want a definitive answer of whether or not the frame will fail?

Like ^ said. Nice words. But it doesn't get us closer to the question "in question".

If your wits are about average and you're not a 300-pounder, my guess is common sense will tell you if the frame will hold or not. A small dent in top tube won't lead to a "subsequent premature death of the frame" whatsoever, unless you treat it like shit. A dent, that looks like it's been caused by folding the frame on the middle, probably will.

Currently an owner of an NJS frame. There is almost nothing wrong with it. I saw "almost" because there is something wrong with it. At least some NJS frame here in America have some problem with them. There is an extremely small ding on the top tube (which is difficult to see) and the bottom bracket cups are ceased.

Understand that if you do buy a frame/ frame set/ complete bike that you get what you pay for. If you want to pay $300.00 for an NJS frame set that has a ding or dent somewhere and worry about whether or not it'll fail on you; then don't place your bet on it. Don't cheap out on yourself and get something nice and worth the money. If a bike is $600.00, it's what you want, work for it, get it, ride the fuck out of it, be happy!

You can work out dents in steel tubes with radiused blocks and a vice or clamp:

had a few NJS framesets the past couple years. No issues just look at what you buy carefully. If it's too cheap its probably shit.

I'm planning to get an NJS frame from Japan with a little ding on the right side of the top tube plus some paint chips and some rusts, so how's your NJS frame with a ding from Japan nowadays ? Any update to those who bought one?
