Howdy. I am currently riding (and loving) my 2008 Ferrous 29er.

I recently noticed that there is no "brace" between the chain and seat stay on the non-drive side, near the disc brake mount. I've seen "braces" in that spot on other steel bikes. My guess is that they are in place to reinforce that area against downward brake forces that might be substantial enough to cause frame failure.

Is this something I should worry about in terms of frame failure on my Ferrous? I am using the OE BB7 brakes and 160mm rotors.
