    I think they do chasing so seldom that they never updated the price (they have a fixed list for a lot of repairs).

    I should add: the younger mechanic asked me where I got the frame and jotted down the name of the ebay Lynskey shop for perusal himself.
    that $20 price must be from 1990s. By mid-2000s steel/ti bikes were becoming dinosaurs as everyone was firmly on the "stiffer is better" carbon fiber movement. It's a pleasant surprise to see steel/ti coming back, which I think is due to cx/gravel/adventure scenes.

    With hindsight I probably should have done that, but at the time it never occurred to me that I'd have these kind of problems buying from a reasonably major manufacturer. Still, you live and learn.
