    You need to visit the gym not the tailor.

    Professional sport attracts people that say "mangina". That's why they have 'dolly birds' on the podium.

    Rep. x lots.

    I posted ages ago about pain the front of my knees.

    I tried changing from clipless to flats etc and didn't get an improvement but then realised the riding position (knees out) on the derny at work may have been putting strain on my knees so took a break from riding it at all and then when I had to ride it again just rode knees in and that problem solved itself.

    Now though I have been getting out and doing more miles recently and I've been feeling a slight tightness in the back of my (right) knee.

    Likely cuplrit?

    Found a bikeradar thread that said knee pain at the back = saddle too high but it's definitely not that.

    Couldn't really describe it as pain, perhaps more, discomfort? But I reckon I should try sort out whatever is causing it incase it progresses.

    I guess I'll get it down to a bike shop to get the threads cleaned up anyway,

    Make sure they have the correct tool. I've seen bike shops use one half of the thread reamer for a bsa threaded shell in both sides of an italian shell and fuck the frame.

    ...good looking Thorn...

    My mate has one of these that he's ridden round the world. Currently sitting in pieces after baggage handlers bent the forks on his last return journey.

    I keep trying to buy it off him but he's not for letting it go.

    Very low budget cranks. Velodolo amogst others sell them. Sure I bought a set for about £20 a few years ago.

    Absolutely not worth helicoiling.

    Buy something a bit nicer off classifieds for less than cost of helicoil job.

    I refused to grant the refund to the buyer as I assume I should expect to get the item back first?

    That ship probably sailed in the couple of weeks its been.
