Is it possible to add strength / durability to a steel frame's down tube / head tube junction by adding a gusset? I have zero frame building experience, so I would take to a frame repairer to do this. Can a gusset be added to a frame that is already complete? Other than the aesthetic concerns (paint / finish removal), is there any reason why this shouldn't be done (i.e. concerns about the assembly sequence perhaps)?
