I don’t think it would be any stronger but I’m not sure how much that would matter. When Grant showed me the 3D printed prototype, I thought it was a stroke of genius. If you consider where forces are being applied to a bike frame, that’s the one of the few joints where the compression force is going straight into the joint (dropout and top of bottom bracket, too). With the exception of some minor lateral forces, Riv figured out how to get a multitude of seatstay angles out of one casting. Brilliant! Higher volume = lower cost. I just always wondered if they needed a similar joint at the dropout or if that angle stayed consistent.
